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.
