This Sunday a couple of friends and I went shooting. Unfortunately we didn't have enough ear protection for everyone. We only shot a .22 hand gun and rifle, but my ears are still ringing from the experience. It's already been four days, should I be concerned that I have permanent tinnitus? My left ear feels like it's clogged and certain pitches hurt my ears. (Like the sound of a running faucet.)
There has no doubt been some hearing loss, but I'm praying that it's not as bad as I fear it to be.
I have no doubt learned my lesson, but how concerned should I be about chronic Tinnitus?
I'm 21, and have no history of hearing problems.
