A loud bowling alley

Hi,
I have had changing Tinnitus in my left ear for a few months now, and was originally told it was due to fluid in my ears. Since my ears still feel as though they have fluid in them I am hoping that it will go away. My ears sometimes feel very sensitive to sounds and I have always been careful to protect my ears from loud sounds. However last week, after much debate (I am a very paranoid sort of person) I decided to go bowling because I thought it would be quiet and a nice change. When we got there all seemed okay, I paid and received a pager which would go off when it was our turn to bowl- we had to stay in the building. Then they turned some very loud music on and announced it was "disco night", I tried my best to stay in the quiet parts if the room, but when we had to bowl, there was a speaker directly in front of us. It was uncomfortable, but I told myself to stop being paranoid and to get on with it. When we left an hour later my ears were ringing and felt strange full and odd. I was very worried as I had read in various places that loud sounds can make Tinnitus worse. When I got home the ringing seemed to have gone, but when I went to bed, I found otherwise. It is now a week and a half later and they are still quietly ringing in both ears. To make matters worse I found a pair of ear plugs in my pocket when I got home. I am very distressed and upset because I have always taken care to look after my hearing and I am only 16. Could it be that the loud music just caused the fluid in my ears to move?, I would like to hope so. Please reply as I feel desperate.
Cheers,
Joe Battams
