Today, I had the most peculiar sound go off in my left ear. A very, VERY, V E R Y loud high pitched squeal. Ears make noises - weirdo electronic sounding squeals, beeps, scrunchings - I think that's normal. I've had similar sounds to what I heard today but this was very different because of its loudness and intensity. It's difficult to explain but the sound felt internal. The noise was in a frequency that I can no longer hear if it's coming from the outside. Make sense?
I was food shopping when it went off and I just had to stop, stare at the produce and breathe... it got louder and louder and louder ... it sounded like my ear was going to explode. It was awful. I just stood there with my hand to the side of my head wondering if this is how I'd croak... exploded ear, all over a mound of Mexican broccoli (on sale).
It went as quick as it came but I've been a bit on edge since it happened... anticipating, I guess.
I was au naturel; I wasn't wearing my hearing aids.
What was that? Anyone else experience this? Should I speak to my audiologist?
