Had a great weekend this weekend. Lots of riding on glass all weekend. But on my last set I took a face\earplant and i'm pretty sure i perforated my ear drum. I know this is a common injury so i'm not too worried about it. Just wondering how long it takes for the ringing to stop. Its been a day. Thanks. And i did search but didn't find much on the ringing.

I did this last septmeber...hasn't stopped yet. I would go see a doctor because I think I waited too long. Believe me when I see the constant ringing gets pretty old when your trying to sleep.

Thanks Jeff. Sorry that the ringing hasn't stopped. Its driving me crazy already. I'll make sure to see the doc. tomorrow then. How long was your hearing muffled.

hearing can be muffled four 2-4 weeks. My experience has been close to 3. <BR> <BR>i hated it

You will know if you perforated your eardrum. My understanding is that is some of the most terrible pain. I bruised mine a couple of years ago while riding (crashing) and it hurt like hell. It took about four to six weeks before I could swim more than 5 feet under water (pressure). My equilibrium was all jacked up too..

when I did mine, it didn't hurt all that bad, but it was about 3 months before my hearing felt normal again.

I perforated mine before on a failed HS 3 attempt. That was the most miserable pain I think I've ever been in wakeboarding...that includes broken ribs and a torn ACL/MCL. <BR> <BR>Definitely get it checked out as you'll probably have to stay out of the water for a little bit. Your hearing is not something you want to mess with long term.

Just got back from the doc. It is a perforated ear drum but i may need surgery cause its a large tear. I'm glad i asked cause i would of been sitting around waiting for it to heal on its own. So thanks guys.
