My mother has difficulty in hearing. I want to buy her an hearing aid. But she also has a heart condition and has an implanted device in heart. Is it safe to go for hearing aid?

Hi Hearing aid technology has advanced leaps and bounds. With an already implanted heart device she will have no adverse effect with an additional hearing aid. You can be rest assured. If you have the latest audio gram you can send me a copy of that so that I can give you the exact detail about what kind of hearing aid will be suitable for your mother. Hope this answers your query.

Dear lybrate-user you have to get evaluated by ent surgeon and audiologist for complete examination of your hearing problem. The surgical treatment depends on the type and extent of damage to the hearing mechanism. If possible you can go for cochlear implant after evaluation which may give good results.

Hello sir, High blood pressure may cause inner ear hemorrhage, which is supplied by the a artery, which supports the inner ear artery and is divided into cochlear artery and anterior vestibular artery which maycause progressive or sudden hearing loss . Regards.

My father is 84 years old and having multiple disease conditions: He suffers from severe anxiety. He gets tensed in very simple incidents of life and thinks a lot about all simple incidents which we in general do not give much attention to. He also suffers from hypertension. Severe hearing loss with damage of tympanic membrane and infection in one ear. Severe spondylitis with disc degeneration and nerve compression with back pain from the same. Painful leg due to sciatica. Blind from glaucoma in right eye and age related macular degeneration in the left eye. Tendency of prostate enlargement, and pain and burning with urination at least twice a year. He also suffers from GI ailments like gas, indigestion, and very soft stools every now and then. Due to his frail and weak physic, we mostly try to avoid any allopathy medications sans emergency situations. For a long period of time, he is taking essentia area once a day and viscum pentarkan once a day. For the last few weeks he is also taking alfalfa tonic. Presently, his blood pressure is mostly normal or very little above normal. I would like to know what should be my approach to his treatment? What medicine regimen should he follow? I would also like to know if there is any medications that can arrest the progression of age related macular degeneration. And if there is any medication to arrest his hearing loss. He seems to get disturbed mostly by the fact that he is gradually losing his vision and listening ability. Thanks

Actually you need to consult a rehabilitation physician in your nearby area, as this case has multiple problems and needs proper rehabilitation. All these problems are inter-linked and solving one problem can cure another one. Adding any type of drug (allopathic or non-allopathic) will add to more problems. While I was in aiims, new delhi, I have seen many cases like this, in which solving a single problem cures many problems. Consult me in private. Do not worry, we can solve problem.

I m a 35 yr old man weight 65 kg height 5.5 ft. When I was 16 a friend hit me on my right ear and I got a deep tone and about 50% hearing loss and damage eardrum. After that and till now some time my ear flows and got some different noise. I've x-ray report and doctor suggesting me for operation. Let me know how good it will be after operation.?

Hi You seem to have chronic suppurative otitis media (csom). Based on the history provided and the 50% hearing loss + damaged ear drum + occasional flowing of discharge and tinnitus means the ear is getting infected repeatedly and has a chance of worsening if the infection spreads deeper into the ear or to other neighbouring structures. It is therefore recommended that you undergo surgery to have this corrected.

Causes and Treatment of Tinnitus

Causes and Treatment of Tinnitus

Tinnitus is when you think that there is noise when there really is no sound. It is very common and is not very serious either. It affects about 1/5th of the population. It is worth note that tinnitus is not a condition. Instead, it is a symptom of having a condition. These conditions range from hearing loss, an ear injury or even a circulatory system disorder. Even though tinnitus does worsen with age however, it can also improve with treatment. If you know the cause of tinnitus, it does help treat it. Here is everything you need to know about tinnitus.

Symptoms of Tinnitus:
As mentioned earlier, tinnitus is a ringing, hissing, clicking or buzzing sound which only you can hear and no one else.

Causes of Tinnitus:
There are many common causes of tinnitus including:

  1. Age-related hearing loss: Tinnitus is commonly caused due to hearing loss.
  2. Meniere's disease: Meniere's disease is a type of inner ear disorder. It is when there are abnormalities in the fluid pressure of your inner ear.
  3. Medications: Many medications have a side effect of tinnitus as well including certain antibiotics, antidepressants, cancer medications and even aspirin.
  4. Loud noise exposure: Exposure to loud noise once in a while will not cause tinnitus. However, constant exposure to loud noise might cause tinnitus.
  5. Changes in the shape of your ear bone: Otosclerosis is an abnormal bone growth which results in the bones in your middle ear stiffening.
  6. Acoustic neuroma: There is a nerve, which goes from the brain straight to the inner ear. When this nerve develops a tumor, it is known as acoustic neuroma which is a common cause of tinnitus.

Treatment of Tinnitus:
Tinnitus can be only be stopped if the underlying condition is treated. However, there are certain electronic devices, which help suppress the noise including:

  1. Hearing aids: Hearing aids are already helpful for people who have hearing loss; however they can also help reduce tinnitus.
  2. Masking device: Wearing a masking device which continuously emits a low-level noise helps stop the buzzing, clicking, hissing or ringing sound which comes with tinnitus.

Chewing chewing gum good or bad for teeth? Some genuine advice please. If good which one is advisable?

Gums with sugar should be avoided. Sugar-free chewing gums are non-harmful. Some may claim that it helps fight activities however no scientific evidence exists. Also, not all sugar-free gums are good. Be aware that non-sugar sweeteners sometimes cause bloating, diarrhea or flatulence. So your decision lies in what suits your body. If you don't have such side effects and you are addicted to it, then go for it. Better avoid gums if you can. Chew neem sticks instead.

Sir, as you mentioned in your history that on this you took medicine but still it there. Sir, frankly speaking if you've very mild hearing loss also but tinnitus is so much bothering you then any audiologist if you concerned with them they gave you suggestion of hearing aid with tinnitus masker but as your needs it totally your decision. Tinnitus is arise due to damage of internal part of ear & it also caused of hearing loss so now in market from diff audiologist came with custom h/a with tinnitus masker which benifited to you. So kindly advice to go for hearing aid which have feature of tinnitus masker.
