Hi. I was taking a flying lesson the other day and the speakers in the helmet went full blast. My left ear really hurt and I took the helmet off. The hearing in both my ears was iminished. My left ear especially. My voice sounds funny when I talk and muffled. Also when I wistle it sounds off pictch and weird. I m 60 years old. What is going on? Did I rupture an eardrum or what. Thanks.

Hi thanks for your question.
Ear pain,hearing loss and changed in voice tone following loud noise.All thses are features of bilateral tympanic membrane perforation what is called as ear drum rupture.Consult an ENT specialist who may examine you to confirm rupture and may prescribe you appropriate treatment.There is nothing to worry ,if mamnged properly perforation will get closed quickly.
Hope this answers your question.
