Embarrassment in cases that you misunderstand questions and/or conversation. Social Situations Trouble hearing in crowded areas such as a restaurant Volume too high on electronics Difficulty hearing in multi person conversation Difficulty hearing women and children Asking others to repeat themselves frequently
Medical Situations Exposure to loud sounds over a period of time Family history of hearing problems/loss Medications- Certain medications can damage the ear, resulting in hearing loss, ringing in the ear, or balance disorders. These drugs are considered ototoxic medications. For example medicines used to treat serious infections, cancer, and heart disease.
Types Of Hearing Loss If any part of the outer, middle or inner ear isn’t working correctly, your hearing may be affected. Below are the three basic types of hearing loss. Conductive - Caused by damage to the outer or middle ear. Sound waves are blocked as they move though the outer or middle ear. Since the sound cannot be conducted efficiently, the sound energy that reaches the inner ear is weaker or softer. This can result from many different things such as fluid in the middle ear, excessive wax build up, infection, damage to the middle ear bones. Sensorineural - Caused by damage to the inner ear. Sound waves travel normally through the outer and inner ear, but the inner ear is unable to pick up the vibrations or is unable to send the vibrations to the brain This is the most common type of permanent loss. This can result from many different things such as excessive noise, certain medications, infection, disease, and aging. Reduces the ability to hear faint sounds even when they are loud enough. Mixed - When conductive hearing loss occurs in combination with a sensorineural hearing loss. There may be damage in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear or the auditory nerve in which the vibrations cannot be picked up or sent to the brain.
