Exclamation Ear feels "full" due to someone screaming.. Please help.

Hello, on Wednesday night I was visiting a friends house and as I was sitting there reading up on somethings on my laptop a friend comes by and litereally screams in my right ear (thinking it was funny)... At first there was a pang of pain, headache, etc. However ever since that night my right ear has not been the same. It feels "full" however I know there is no wax built up. It doesnt seems to lower my hearing in that ear it just feels like something deep down is giving this "full" sensation and it comes and goes throughout the day in waves and at some point stronger then others. So its been nearly two days since the incident and I am not really seeing any improvement. I am worried that my eardrum might be somehow damaged. Has anyone here had any experience of such a situation (lound noise soundly, unexpectly) in your ear? If so did it just heal by itself? Or would you suggest I go see a doctor. Any help would be greatly appericated. Thanks!

Your cochlea can be damaged by the shock of a sudden loud noise. It could be temporary but if your symptom continues I would call an ear specialist and tell your story. Then I'd give your friend a nice kick in the you know what.

Well i hope your friend feels bad!
Please see above post by crankyrobots3 who is in a similar situation. You really need to get your eardrum checked and then you know where you stand.
Mine just cleared up on it's own in 2-3 weeks.

Yeah, I agree on the kicking in the "you know what". My friend accidentally set off a firecracker right near my ear and my hearing hasn't been the same since. I know he didn't do it on purpose, but I gave him a beatdown anyway.

He might need another one if mt hearing doesn't come back.

I am sorry to hear about the scream and firecracker! My son once screamed REALLY loud right in my ear. He was not even two and I was holding him on my hip. My ear ached and I had ringing in my ear for quite awhile. It did go away as I think both of yours will but it did take two or three weeks. Hope this helps, hang in there.
