Unless you inadvertently want to get yer sausage cooked too!

But back on topic - it looks like you may have noise induced tinnitus Thomas. Use foam earplugs for loud places for the next while.

Noise levels in most late bars/nightclubs are far too high. If you can't hear what your friends are saying then it's far too loud.

Did you do anything for it or did it just go?

Good. Although its one of those things that will easily come back. Stay away from speakers and earphones.

That's good to hear Thomas. Keep away from very loud noises, especially those of a high pitch for the next while. Tinnitus is a sign that your ears have been damaged.

If going anywhere really loud the next few months I'd strongly advise you to wear foam ear plugs.

My tinnitus has been really bad in my left ear for about 6 weeks now. I'm not able to sleep well and the noise is constant and very annoying. The only relief I can get is by listening to music or a running shower but it can't be loud as it will worsen the ringing.

I went to see an ENT specialist today who did a range of hearing tests on me and he's pretty sure I have an abnormality in my inner ear (cochlea) that makes me very prone to tinnitus.

Thankfully the sitaution in terms of treating tinnitus is not as grim as it was back in 1994 when I first got the condition. There is medication available and also ways to "trick" your brain into blocking out the tinnitus sounds via cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Research over the past 15 or so years, according to this consultant, points to tinnitus being both an inner ear and ear/brain condition of which there is an awful lot to still understand.

But I came away from my visit in better form and it's great to know that there is support out there now.
