I have severe tinnitus in my left ear. The ringing NEVER stops. It is a pain, especially when the enviroment is very quiet. I urge all to use
apppropiate hearing protection when around loud noises. Especially when firing guns.
Effects from tinnitus can induce imbalance, depression,and other symptoms. Some people it actually affects their mental state.
I just deal with it. It suxs, though. And, it was avoidable. Had I wore proper hearing protection, or possibly it happened in a fight and I was hit
directly on that ear.
