    That's fantastic Bob. A clean bill of health and a concert within 24 hours. If you have a designated driver, the weekend is complete! Good for you, my friend.

    hi. my hearing is also due to standing close to speakers at heavy metal shows. a had an mri done and a bone , very little one, behind the ear drum is broken. it can be fixed with surgery bur i have not done that yet. i also experienced what you described.

    I went to the doctor today. My ear has dramatically improved....I would say it is close to 90% better. Per the audioligist exams my hearing is normal with the exception of a 5db dip at 4000Hz...Heck of a lot better than down 70+DB!!!! Thank God! Eardrum looks vastly improved...pressure trauma is healing up well...much better...weening off the drugs now...will check back with the doctor periodically per a schedule...but looks good! I'm not supposed to fly for a few months but I can live with that...that was a pretty scary experience!!!

    Doctor's final diagnosis for those of you who want to know the details--Issue most likely due to fluid in the ear when I flew leading to Ear Barotrauma when it didn't equalize properly -this damage created a vulnerability to either a viral or bacterial infection of the inner ear or set up a condition akin to endolymphatic hydrops (not full blown Ménière's disease).

    Best advice-----take a decongestant before you fly or you could severely and/or potentially permanently damage your ears! I've flown countless times...never thought twice...I'll make sure to take necessary precautions next time!

    Thank you all guys are the best!
    Great news, glad things are pretty much back to normal!

    There are many type of hearing loss. The one that you are going trough may be the conductive hearing loss. All that can be done now is follow up with the doctor and see what he suggest the reason is and how can it be corrected.
