I`m currently experiencing ringing in my left ear and muffled hearing after taking part in live firing - idiotically I did not have ear def's in my left ear. However, the ear was only exposed for a few rounds on one attack. The incident occured last thurs so its been a week now. There has been some improvement but nothing drastic by any stretch. I'm assured by others that its quite common for it to take a couple of weeks to recover (including the doc) but I just wondered what experiences/advice anyone on here had? Basically i'm looking for reassurance because if i've managed to screw my hearing I am worried i'm looking at a MD.
