i have always loved my music loud. and i usualy listen to my ipod on full for a good 3 hours a day but it has never caused me any problems. its christmas break and i havnt been listening to any music lately. i have been sick with a cold and stuffed nose for the last 2 weeks. i was lieing in bed last nite and it was 100% quite. then i got a realy loud ringing for about half a second then it subsided. but in the 100% quite i have a realy realy high pitched sound identical to that of a ctr tv being on. its been there for about 6 hours so far. im 16 years old. will the ringing ever go away? its pretty faint but anoying as hell! and also my ears have been aching lately down inside where my jaw bone conects.
