hi there, sudden loud noises have the potentials to damage your ear drum and in extreme cases even your inner ear apparatus. It would be a good precaution to visit your ENT specialist and take an opinion about the same. Usually these conditions can be treated with a minor surgury but the ultimate decision will be taken by the specialist after he has examined you and knows the extent of damage. Do take care.
