I have a couple of questions...
1. I am in a fairly loud band, and usually use an ear plug in the ear that is on the drummer side, so my left ear. After a practice, the right side ear (opposite side of drummer) can feel dull for a few minutes then goes back to normal. Is this because it reacts to sound, and quietens down (like eyes do to bright light), or is it likely I am slowly damaging it?
2. I don't know if this is related, but a couple of days ago, I woke up with my left ear feeling full/dull. This is weird because if it was from noise I thought it would be the right ear, which is usually less protected. So i thought it might be something other than noise induced.
The dullness has gone now, it lasted about a day. But there is a faint ringing, noticeable at night and if i put my finger in the ear.
Any ideas what this is, and will it go away?
If it is of any interest, I also currently have a tight/sore neck and sometimes sleep with my neck at odd angles, and it was also my second night in a row with about 4-5hrs sleep.
Thanks (and I'll keep it updated with it it goes away, gets worse or anything for anyone else that expereices this!)
