View Full Version : Explosion and Dizziness

After an explosion, my character experiences (temporary) loss of hearing and dizziness. My question is if the dizziness would result from the inability to hear, the explosion itself, or from a possible concussion? Thoughts?

For context: she is not in the middle of the explosion. she is far enough away from it to get thrown back and gets some minor shrapnel from it. I'd rather not have her get a concussion, because that'd be more complicated than I'd want.

Also, if anyone has experienced temporary hearing loss, what was it like? how long did it last?

Injury to the inner ear also commonly affects balance because there are structures there known as the semicircular canals. These structures are key for balance.
