Re: Sudden ear infection (or instant tinnitus)?
There’s 2 muscles in the ear (1 is 1mm long), they protect the ear from very loud noises by pulling 1 bone away (deafness) then it comes back.
However i have heard (brother) who had ear tests like that (high pitch noise) who kept hearing it for years, however it did go away.
It may have activated a virus but seems a bit sudden, seems more like the ear protection thing might have gone a bit over the top, i would think it will settle but might take some time.
I have tinnitus in my right ear which seems to act up on food and stress and different levels (i had an ear in fact in 2008, took 4 months for the tinnitus to start after the ear problem went.
However i did go deaf in my right ear with the infection for 10 mins though.
