Hello, I've recently had severe hearing damage over the past few days. I hurt something in the inside of my ear thanksgiving weekend with a q-tip, never went to the doctor so I feel like I may have worsened the healing process. I am a musician, but have not taking care of my ears I will admit. Earlier this week I was working on a song that has lots of low frequencies boosted, I'm talking about 10hz to 200hz range. I would listen to the track I was working on with studio headphones for on average of 3 hours at a time. After the first day I noticed a deep uneasy feeling kinda sore in the pit of my right ear. Second day I felt it slightly worsen so I eased off the loudness (had the volume at 80-90%). I started then to feel a mild similar sensation in my left ear, right ear got worse. So the 3rd day I was driving around listening to the track in my car (the system isn't so good) at a loud level, and started to notice the highs being heard unusually louder in my right ear. Later that night I went to a music club that has nothing but low frequency sounds. Since I new it was a loud low frequency music playing club I put an ear plug on in my right ear; just one since I could only find one at home. When I got there i stuffed my Left ear with tissue paper to help deaden noise. Toward the end of the night I took off the right ear plug for just a second and noticed I was picking up the Low frequencies from it anymore. The next day in class I noticed that I could barely pick up what my classmates were saying to me that were right next to me. I do hear the tinnitus ringing at this point but thought it be really unusual since I've never had a problem with hearing really. Is it possible that I may have perforated my eardrums? Can my hearing also be restored? My doctors appt. isn't until Monday is there any special care I can use for my ears? Medicine, etc.
