I recently went to a Justin Bieber concert. It was awesome and fun except for the fact that it was unbelieveably loud! The screaming girls were the worst part! After the concert, as I was leaving, I felt like I lost 1/3 of my hearing. On the ride home, most of my hearing seemed to come back. I was very exhausted and I figured that my ears would be fully back to normal when I woke up the next morning. But...that didn't happen. When I woke up the morning after the concert, both of my ears hurt bad. My right ear hurt more (probably because that ear was closer to the speakers and this girl kept screaming in that ear!) Anyway, I told my mom I was worried and she said it will go away in a few days and that I shouldn't worry. Two days later, my ears are still no better. I have most of my normal hearing, except it just kinda feels like I lost like 2% of my hearing, if that makes any sense. My ears POP! everytime I swallow or something and my right ear hurts like ear-infection bad!! My ears also kinda feel clogged. (please note, I never had any ringing in my ears after the concert or anything) Is this normal after a big, loud concert? Will this go away and how long might it take to go away? I'm only 13 years old and I have a full life ahead of me! I don't want to have permanent hearing loss because I wanted to go to a Justin Bieber concert when I was 13 and didn't know any better to bring earplugs to my FIRST CONCERT!!! I'm so worried!! My mom made an appointment with my primary care doctor. But in the meantime, what can I do?! I'm so scared. There were hundereds of people way closer to the speakers than me and they seemed fine?! I'm scared...I need some reassurance and support. CAN ONE, FIRST CONCERT CAUSE PERMANENT EAR PAIN AND HEARING LOSS?!?!?! That makes no sense, even if someone has sensitive ears, like me....please help...I can't calm down!!
