In my opinion it should go away, assuming you didn't do any damage to your inner ear.

there are a few other medical conditions that might cause a persistent ringing in the ears. Such as a Potassium deficiency.

I put in a high end stereo system in my car and listen to music very loud. Ever since then I have that "ringing" sound in my right ear, and that was 4 years ago. I do not have hearing loss but that ringing just does not stop, its pretty annoying especially when trying to sleep.

I know exactly what you mean about trying too sleep with that ringing going on. I had a cold recently and developed a two tone ringing which really annoyed me!

To the OP , i have had that so bad after gigs that all sound is like an electronic crackle so if you value your ears or are seeking a career in music then look after them, buy some earplugs ( small foam ones ) for gigs etc, it may seem poncy but a lot of people do use them now! Even dj's use them now as its their livelyhood thats at risk.

I have this condition for over 10 years and has gone worst in the last year to the point that I have to sleep with a fan (noise) so I don't have to think about it.

Yes first I thought it was my wisdom teeth as I was having a lot of problems with my jaw and the worst part of the is in the left side.

I had them remove early last year, my jaw pain and problems got better, but the ringing didn't go away.

Two months ago I went to my doctor complaining and he refer me to a ear nose doctor, I was tested for hearing problems and my hearing was better than normal.

He then grab my jaw and held it in each side of my face and told me to open my mouth.

Guess what I could not and I experience a stabbing pain.

I was diagnosed with TMD, my jaw is out of place and the wearing and tearing in my left side is the cause of the ringing in the ears.

For days I experience this pain and in my jaw that makes it very hard to sleep on the side of my face.

Right now I am looking for a good specialist in my area that works with my condition, but is not too many.

Extended exposure to high noise causes loss of hearing in certain ranges depending on degree of severity. Very high short term noise like explosives and arms fire can cause the same thing.
When your brain does not get any signal from damage in that range it will actually try to increase sensitivity in that area. This results in a constant ringing.

This article explains why you can hear ringing in your ears after being subjected to loud noise. And in most cases the ringing is just temporary, (but you should avoid subjecting yourself to very loud noice too often):


Noise levels louder than a shouting match can damage parts of our inner ears called hair cells. Hair cells act as the gatekeepers of our hearing. When sound waves hit them, they convert those vibrations into electrical currents that our auditory nerves carry to the brain. Without hair cells, there is nothing for the sound to bounce off, like trying to make your voice echo in the desert.

Hair cells reside in the inner ear inside the shell-shaped cochlea. Bundles of hair-like extensions, called stereocilia, rest on top of them. When sound waves travel through the ears and reach the hair cells, the vibrations deflect off the stereocilia, causing them to move according to the force and pitch of the vibration. For instance, a melodic piano tune would produce gentle movement in the stereocilia, while heavy metal would generate faster, sharper motion. This motion triggers an electrochemical current that sends the information from the sound waves through the auditory nerves to the brain.

When you hear exceptionally loud noises, your stereocilia become damaged and mistakenly keep sending sound information to the auditory nerve cells. In the case of rock concerts and fireworks displays, the ringing happens because the tips of some of your stereocilia actually have broken off. You hear those false currents in the ringing in your head, called tinnitus. However, since you can grow these small tips back in about 24 hours, the ringing is often temporary.



Hair cells within the inner ear contain bundles of hair-like extensions called stereocilia

go to the doctor, you have liquid in your ear or ears... my friend had a construction accident couple years ago... fell from 9 feet in the air, and landed directly on the bone behind the ear (sorry for my lack of medical expertise, i cant name that bone
). The bones was fracture in a couple places... anyways
It has none to do with your problem but: that fracture caused a leakage somewhere inside the ear. Ever since he has to sleep with a fan on next to his bed, because the high pitch sound just WONT go away. So my advice to you is to go see a doctor, FAAAAST!
