I have tinnitus (constant "ringing" in the ears) that gets much worse every time I play. Afterwards I can barely hear out of my left ear. Things go back to "normal" (a much duller hissing that gets partially cancelled out by the sound of a computer, air filter, etc.) after a few hours, but it's still pretty annoying. I haven't tried ear-plugs yet, but I doubt that'll work - maybe if I was playing an electric guitar. Anybody else have this problem? And remedies?
