    Ringing in ear
    katelyn_2 posted:
    Last night I went to a concert. I started the night in the back but ended up in the front by a speaker. I'm only 15 so I didn't know being that close could hurt so much. I'm kind of scared it won't go away. I've been reading all over the internet and so far everything's said it should go away. I don't hear so much of ringing anymore since I woke up, but my ear feel like something is in it. It's muffled and pops when I swallow. Should I worry over this and see my doctor? Or is it a common thing that just goes away without medical treatment?

    Hi katelyn_2,

    It is likely that your tinnitus will clear up on its own, although there is the possibility it will be a long-term occurrence as you said. Here is some information on home treatment you may be interested in reading through and trying. If you are still experiencing these symptoms after one week it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor for an exam. The link above also has some other things to watch for while waiting to see if the tinnitus will go away. Please let us know how you are doing!

    Best wishes,
