Hello everyone, I know there is old post about this but most member are not active anymore there is no way to know if they have recovered or not. So I may try my luck here.


I am the latest victims that the ringing and tinnitus claimed. A week ago I did an intense free days free diving class. After the final session I noticed my right ear are mufffled and lost high frequency hearing above 8k. Also any female voice and piano sounds are out of tune. After 6 hours of sleeping the out of tune problem is gone, over the 6 days of rest my right ear also gain back so high frequency up to 13k. Unfortunately the ringing is still killing me makes me want to put a Bullet in my brain and end it all up. I went ENT the third day after the incident, doc said no rapture, tested all hearing are fine, doesn’t believe any any damage middle ear or inner ear. just told me to rest and give it time to heal.

I am into the 9 days, the ringing just getting louder
Is any body here following up with their condition and improvement?

im a music teacher so I am completely depressed.

thank you all so much!

I had 2 weeks ago a scare after riding the ear in some dives. At first it felt like ear clogged with mucus or water then it started making this constant noise. Thank god 3 days after it healed. I think I have had same thing happen one more time in the past.

Thank you for the reply and you are soooooooo lucky to heal in 3 days. I am into the end of second week, no improvement in fact the right ear tinnitus increased with multiple layers of white noise and glass scratching sound. God help me.

Sorry to hear.....A dive buddy told me he has ruptured his drums 4 times. He said because he was young when it happened it will heal. A local super strong old diver among the first instructors told me he burst the drum s and they never healed fully and one ear he hears less.
May you wake one morning to hear perfect again and never push equalisation again.

Thank you again for your kind words. With the increasing ringing (three layers) it’s sometimes suicidal. I am a veteran, the VA provided mental health help for me. I have went to MRI and I I’ll update this post once it’s revealed.
