Hi Sir, I am having a hearing loss from the last 2 weeks and it is consequently increasing day by day. I was prescribed to take Clavam 625 TDS × 2 weeks (3 times a day) and Alaspan AM BDS x 3 weeks (twice a day) and steam inhalation. Its been 4 days already and I am not seeing any development in my hearing. What shall I do?
In the past 4-5 months, I have noticed a hearing loss in my right ear only (unilateral). I visited two different ENT's and both suggested audiometry and impedance tests. I performed both the tests with a CT scan and it was found that I had otosclerosis. The doctor suggested for stapedectomy and within no time I underwent this surgery, it was performed on 12.03.2017. From the last couple of days I am unable to take proper care of it. Can anyone please let me know what are the chances of this becoming unsuccessful in worst case? And how do I know if something goes wrong post operation as the doc has asked me to visit again after a month. Any additional information related to this will be appreciated much. Thank you in advance.
Doc, follow up question, im using now hearing aid and I can hear everything around me but still the words are not clear but when I pull out my hearing aids, I can understand them and identified them but in and louder voice. What do you think happen to my ears? Thanks.
Hi I am 50. Two months back I was diagnosed with acoustic neuromma and I underwent cyber knife treatment. I feel complete deafness in the affected area and headache also usually at night. Is this any side effect psot treatment? how long will it take to recover?
I have a continuous buzzing sound in my right year for last 4 months. 12 th October 2015 I fell from a running motorcycle. And from then the buzzing sound lingers. And a little head turning remains. I am from then a little hard of hearing. Please suggest what should I do.
My friend is suffering from slightly hearing problem previously he administered antibiotic for chills Us that the reason for hearing problem I heard that some antibiotic got the adverse effect of hearing problem.
If we identified the hearing loss early, child can start rehabilitation early and they can grow like normal kid. They can go to normal school.
A friend of mine has nerve deafness in both the ears by 50%. It is since many years and he clearly feels deafness. So is a treatment available for it.
While most noise is just in the background for us, loud noises, either in small spurts or prolonged exposure, can cause hearing loss. This has been happening more frequently as the levels of noise in an industrialized society go further up.
Noise induced hearing loss explained
Loud noises may damage the sensitive structure of your ear, which process the sound waves into information. They eventually become nonfunctional, resulting in a loss of hearing in that range. If exposure to loud noises continues, then this might extend to the entire range of hearing and may cause total hearing loss.
What may cause noise induced hearing loss?
Some of the scenarios which may cause noise induced hearing loss are as follows:
1. Listening to music on high volume: If you constantly listen to music or watch movies at your home on very loud levels, then it may result in noise induced hearing loss. In fact, listening to music or watching movies with headphones in your ears is one of the leading causes for hearing loss. Headphones have deceptively loud levels and may result in damaged hearing overtime.
2. Noise of household tools: Household tools such as drills, mixers, grinders, mowers, and saws can expose you to loud levels of noise. Even a quick exposure for a few seconds could temporarily damage your hearing.
3. Occupational problems: Occupations such as construction, factory work and military that require the use of power tools on a constant basis can also cause hearing loss. The sound from the resulting friction might damage your hearing very quickly. Explosions and impacts are also causes of hearing loss in the military and law enforcement departments.
Prevention and treatment
Treatment: It is difficult to treat hearing loss as in most cases; it may be permanent, except sudden shocks, when your hearing might come back to normal. The only treatments for hearing loss are hearing aids or cochlear implants which can restore hearing partially.
Prevention: Prevention is the best method to avoid hearing loss and in most cases, you should wear ear protection such as mufflers or sound level reduction devices to protect your hearing. Also, practice listening to music, watching TV or movies at lower levels, especially if you are on the headphones.
