The other morning at 6 am, a garbage truck passed by the street nearest my apartment bedroom window as usual. This time however, it seemed louder than before. in addition to the hydraulic engine noises and the usual banging of the dumpster, there was even more loud banging. It felt like being in an MRI without earplugs and it seeming to never end, although it was only about 5 minutes or so.

I was too exhausted to escape the noise, and I didn't want to put earplugs in, so I just covered my ears with my pillow. I don't know how loud it was, but I just hope I wasn't exposed to too much noise. A setback shortly followed, with an increased ringing in my right ear (the good one) and an increase of jaw pain that typically follows setbacks (I must have some kind of TMJ disorder).

Anyone else have problems with garbage trucks in the morning?
