Sorry to hear that.

Load and sudden sound/noise can cause such symptoms, in most cases these are short lived symptoms and may not have anything serious underlying.

But do have look inside her ear.A pentorch can help you get a better view.Try to have look at the tympanic membrane , look for any blood or discharge.If anything suspicious is seen go to doctor directly, otherwise you can just wait and watch.

And if symptoms persist for more than few hours or increase , then it would be better to see a ENT doctor.

Hope this answers your question.

It s been 6 months since my significant other received a double bypass. He has complained about pain in his left arm and shoulder which seems to be getting worse. He is only able to lift his arm chest high without pain. The pain wakes him up at night. His cardiologist says it s most likely nerve damage from the way they positioned him during the long surgery or a pinched nerve.He never went to any physical rehab after surgery, they kept telling him he wasn t ready yet but then we moved from NY to Texas and the new cardiologist made it sound that after 6 mnths it wouldn t help him anyway. Should he see a neurologist for this ? Thank you for your reply. Joyce Fagan
