Okay I'm 18 years old and I forgot to wear ear plugs while shooting my ar-15. I shot off around 20 rounds and then I went home barely being able to hear anything. My hearing came back fully along with a ringing and hissing sound in my right ear. I thought it would go away so I waited about 6 weeks. The ringing is very quiet now but the high pitched hissing is just plain annoying. I went to an ent and he said I have no hearing loss at all. Just a little pressure in my ear due to me not being able to hear a certain frequency. He Prescribed me prednisone. I saw nothing but bad reviews on the internet so I decided to wait another week. My docter called me and asked how the medication was going and I said I haven't started yet he said you must take it or the hissing and ringing will never go away. Out of desperation I decided to try these horrible pills. I had to stop after the second day because my anxiety got so bad I felt like I was dying. I had bad flashes and felt ill. So I stopped these terrible pills and the day I stopped, the ringing and hissing suddenly spiked and became unbearable "probably due to stress". It became a little quieter two days later. I'm just wondering do I have hope or do I have permanent tinnitus? And is it too late to start the prednisone again if it's the only way. Pleaseeee help , any advice will be appreciated.
