All About Hearing Loss

MBBS, MS - ENT, DNB

All About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is a common sensory problem that generally develops with increasing age or due to prolonged or persistent exposure to loud noises. It is one of the most typical problems that occurs throughout the world. If you are suffering from partial hearing loss, you may find ways of keeping in touch with your family and friends. If you are not suffering from such the following may help you keep your hearing intact for years to come.

Types of hearing loss:
There are two main types of hearing loss: 
1. Conductive Hearing Loss where the problem lies in the middle ear, eardrum or ossicles. A conductive hearing loss affects the passage of sound between the eardrum and the inner ear. Sound passes down the ear canal to the ear drum and through the middle ear, where the sound is transmitted across the middle ear by the three bones called the ossicles to the inner ear.

Causes of conductive hearing loss:

  1. Malformation of outer ear, ear canal, or middle ear structures
  2. Fluid in the middle ear from colds
  3. Ear infection (otitis media - an infection of the middle ear in which an accumulation of fluid may interfere with the movement of the eardrum and ossicles
  4. Allergies
  5. Poor Eustachian tube function
  6. Perforated eardrum
  7. Benign tumors
  8. Impacted earwax
  9. Infection in the ear canal
  10. Foreign body in the ear
  11. Otosclerosis

2. Sensorineural Hearing Loss where there is damage in the inner ear, cochlea or hearing nerve. Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) occurs when there is damage to the inner ear (cochlea), or to the nerve pathways from the inner ear to the brain. Most of the time, SNHL cannot be medically or surgically corrected. This is the most common type of permanent hearing loss.

Causes of sensorineural hearing loss:

  1. Exposure to loud noise
  2. Head trauma
  3. Virus or disease
  4. Autoimmune inner ear disease
  5. Hearing loss that runs in the family
  6. Aging (presbycusis)
  7. Malformation of the inner ear
  8. Meniere's Disease
  9. Otosclerosis 
  10. Tumors

Coping with Hearing Loss:
Antibiotics and eardrops are often prescribed to treat hearing loss and its symptoms. In many cases, people suffering from severe hearing loss use hearing aids. Hearing aids are tiny instruments that people use in their ears to make sounds louder. People who suffer from hearing loss cope with their problems through increased concentration and focus. The usual way involves reading the moving lips of the person while they talk. Prevention is better than cure and is the best solution to avoid long term hearing loss. Avoiding continuous loud noises, to the possible extent helps prevent hearing loss to a great extent.

Which medicine to take during cough and cold. I have severe problem please suggest me the best medicine.
Hi dear, Traditional remedies might help relieve common cold discomfort, too. Drink plenty of liquids, including chicken soup. It can make you feel better. To relieve a sore throat, gargle with warm salt water, use throat sprays, and suck on ice or lozenges. Try a saltwater nasal rinse. These can help with a stuffy or runny nose. Use petroleum jelly on your nose if it’s irritated from constant blowing. Facial tissues with added lotions can help prevent, and heal, redness and soreness. Use a humidifier to help break up phlegm. Do what you can to make yourself as comfortable as possible, and rest while your body fights the cold virus.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

My wife's body temperature drops - her lips turn pale like when you were to long in cold water - that happens from one moment to the other. She uses a heating-pad and then she spikes a fever - her entire body is overly hot. There are some weeks where she has it almost every day and other times she feels good for days. She also has heart racing / high blood pressure. The doctors hear in West Jefferson, NC don't really help.

it happens to most of the girls in cold water. Her lips become pale. So if this is happening she should go away from the cold water and use warm blanket. Dont give any heating pad to her. It happens because of weakness. She should take ayurvedic medicines for this.

Yes it could be a psychological feeling or a withdrawal from your long term habit. You can try using nicotex gum instead. And slowly you can stop the gum also.

Psychological and Medical Causes of Premature Ejaculation

ARCD in Critical Care, PG Dip in Emergency Medicine, MD - Community Medicine
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Psychological and Medical Causes of Premature Ejaculation

The uncontrolled discharge either before or shortly after physical penetration is a common that affect a number of men. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes and is a major cause of unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life.

What causes premature ejaculation?

Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner. It may happen only in certain sexual situations or if it has been a long time since the last ejaculation.

Psychological factors

Most cases of PE are not related to any disease and are instead due to psychological factors, including:

  • Sexual inexperience
  • Novelty of a relationship
  • Overexcitement or too much stimulation
  • Relationship stress
  • Anxiety
  • Guilty feelings
  • Depression
  • Issues related to control and intimacy

Medical causes of premature ejaculation

Biological causes of PE are much less common than psychological ones. In rare cases, the cause can be more serious, such as nervous system damage as a result of surgery or physical trauma.

  • Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Prostate disease
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Thyroid problems
  • Illicit drug use
  • Excessive alcohol consumption

Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation-

The main symptom is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. Ejaculation occurs before the person wishes it, with minimal sexual stimulation.

How is it treated?

  • In many cases, premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. For some men, stopping or cutting down on the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs may improve how well they can control ejaculation.
  • Antidepressant medicines are sometimes used to treat premature ejaculation.
  • There are also creams, gels, and a spray that may be used to treat premature ejaculation by reducing sensation. These medicines are applied to the penis before sex. But some of these medicines can also affect a man's sex partner by reducing sensation for the partner.

In Allopathic Medicine, no satisfactory treatment is available till date. On the other hand Unani /Ayurvedic herbal medicine have an excellent role for the treatment of premature ejaculation. Such herbal medicine not only treat the premature ejaculation, but also increase the sex drive as well as patient sexual satisfaction. Always consult a practitioner before going for any treatment.
