Tinnitus after a concert or disco means a series of sounds in ears perceived after an evening of fun. After an evening at the disco or at a concert, where the volume of the music is very high, it happens frequently to perceive the so-called tinnitus.
The sensation is that of hearing ringing in ears especially before falling asleep. All this is the result of excessive and prolonged exposure to particularly loud noises that damage the hair cells of the cochlea, the innermost part of the ear.
Usually a period of "acoustic rest" of a few hours favors the restoration of normal functionality of the ear and cochlear cells, resulting in the disappearance of tinnitus. Sometimes, however, if the sound stress lasts for a long time or the intensity of the sound to which you are exposed is extremely high, the resulting hearing damage can be permanent. In these cases it is necessary to consult a specialist doctor for appropriate therapy.
In general, it can be said that adopting a healthy lifestyle, which includes a balanced diet and constant, albeit moderate, physical exercise, is the first step to also preserve one's hearing well-being. Special attention goes to food. A preference for foods rich in melatonin such as olive oil, tomatoes and nuts can considerably improve the quality of sleep. While zinc-rich foods such as fish, oysters, legumes, dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds can even alleviate the perception of tinnitus. Limiting listening to loud music both in the disco and with headphones or in the home protects against well-known and documented noise damage. And if you work in noisy environments it is essential to use hearing protectors (headphones or ear plugs).
