Bodily reaction: Your may be responding in an exaggerated manner, but most people have a somewhat negative reaction to obnoxious bass sounds when they're wanting to sleep.

Absolutely: It depends on two variables. The intensity of the noise (greater than 85 decibels) and the duration of exposure. If you are exposed to loud music for at least 8 hours a days and if the loudness is great enough, you will develop NIHL, (noise induced hearing loss). And this is a permanent high frequency hearing loss. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Dietary causes?: Since we don't digest the fiber we eat, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason for gas is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. Drinking lactose-free milk solves that problem. Gas can also be due to infections in the intestines (such as giardia), or other malabsorption disorders. ...Read more

It feels like something is moving in my head.I'm feeling pressure.and I can't stand to hear loud noises. My ear rings when I do hear loud noises.
Tricky: without an exam, I can only give general information. Nothing is actually moving around in your head. Increased sensitivity to stimuli often occurs with medications, anxiety issues, and/or drugs of abuse. If it is both ears, it has to be a situation involving the entire brain not one side, so tumor/stroke/hearing structures are not the problem. ...Read more
Beat of the Drum: When the middle ear is distended due to fluid or air pressure accumulation, it can disrupt normal sound perception. If a condition exists where there is obstruction of the eustachian tube, then it is possible to hear noises like your own heartbeat from a vessel close to the drum. In most instances this is normal and resolves. Persistent perception should be examined to rule out other problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tinnitus: Tinnitus is the perception of hearing a sound that isn't actually there. This can be caused by problems in the ear (outer, middle and inner) or the nerves and brain that translate pressure waves in the air into sound that we hear. Problems in these areas trick the brain into thinking that there is noise when there is not. See your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
