Are musician earplugs available over the counter somewhere, or do you need to
see an audiologist? I don't have problems in orchestra (yet), but I do have
problems with loud bands (ie praise bands in churches). I'm trying to find a way
to tolerate them so I can go to church and see bands in coffee houses and such
(I find that constant, loud noise raises my heart rate, and a sustained high
heart rate is a seizure symptom/trigger (don't know which one) for me).
