Hi, if you are suffering from nerve weakness of ear since last 2-3 years and your hearing threshold is 45db, it is better for you to go for a digital hearing aid accordingly by your hearing loss, because there is almost no solution for nerve related hearing loss, except a hearing aid. Also, medicine and surgery has no such effect on nerve related problem.

I have a hearing problem what should I do I have just 21 years old, wil you give a suggestions for that? And also give a precautions for that.

Hello ma'am, as you've hearing difficulty it required get to done your audiometry from audiologist. For hearing difficulty there r many causes any history related to noise exposure, if you r hearing very loud music for respective hrs, any otologic history such as discharge from ear, pain medical history. Frequent cold & cough problem as a precaution point of view 1st you've to mentioned in detail what you suggest it caused of but in general avoid to remain your ear wet, don't pour any oil or water in it. Keep ear dry, used ear protection device if surrounded environment is noisy, don't try to remove your wax by own don't used earbud so frequently bcoz most of people unaware how much they've to insert it & then result is damage of that. So if you feel that hearing difficulty due to wax accumulation then concern & remove from ent.

Hi, as you mentioned, you r suffering from hereditary nerve deafness in both ear, ok. And you want custom invisible hearing aid, ok. So firstly you have to check your ears and according to your hearing status the audiologist will decide suitable invisible custom aid for u, if your ears threshold permits, ok. A custom digital aid costs around @20k, and it will ultimately resolve your problem, and care should be there for every device.

Common Myths About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is experienced by millions of people these days. Ageing is not the only factor that brings hearing impairment. The causes are many. Certain medications, continuous exposure to loud noise, genetic involvement, injury and some medical conditions may cause hearing loss.

There are quite a few myths that people have come to believe about hearing loss over the years. Since it is such a common phenomenon, here we take a look at the common myths surrounding hearing loss.

Myth no. 1: Hearing loss is exclusive to elderly.

Fact: As said before, hearing loss can be an outcome of various causes. Nearly half of the people suffering from the same are below the age of 55 years. No matter what your age is, you must always get your ears checked, especially if you are feeling that are you missing things.

Myth no. 2: Diagnosing hearing loss is easy.

Fact: Most people do not come to know about the condition until it gets worse. Also, your physician never really checks for hearing loss symptoms in a general check-up unless you ask for it specifically.

So, always get a check-up done, like you do for other probable diseases.

Myth no. 3: There's no effective solution for hearing loss.

Fact: Like there have been advancements in the medical field for everything else, there are aids available these days that improve your hearing and have finer adjustments for noise adaptation. Also, there are certain other procedures and surgeries that have proved to improve the condition in many.

So, seek help as soon as possible.

Myth no. 4: The sounds aren't loud enough; my ears are healthy and fine.

Fact: If there is a problem you're experiencing with hearing, you have got to accept that and get it treated. Avoiding a certain condition will only get things worse for you.

Also, hearing aids are no more a stigma. Ear aid devices have designs similar to earphones these days, which are comfortable enough to wear. Ignoring a medical condition or inability to accept the same would only do more harm instead of making things fine.

Hello ma'am, as you mentioned in this it called as a congenital hearing loss. Mostly this caused of any pre or perinatal complication, due to any syndrome or related to diff cause. Hearing loss in such cases are mostly very severe category where sometimes only residual hearing is remaining. As a rehabilitation point of view we as a audiologist mostly focus on early intervention, so if child is less than 3 years then it required to go for cochlear implant or hearing aid fitting. In congenital case age will be play a most imp role bcoz under 5years only child will be able to understand language & their complication. After 5years it difficult to make there language age appropriate bcoz it obvious when child heard something then only they will learn language & communicate with others. For older child with congenital hearing loss then acco to the degree of loss treatment is vary but as I mentioned earlier they've severe category of loss so as a rehabilitation point of view sign lang or other manual communication help them. To detect such child as early as possible try to arrange oae& abr screening at nicu by audiologist. Thanks.

Looks like you have oesophagitis, gastric ulcer or acid peptic dyspepsia, I would advise healthy life style, regularity of food, avoid spicy fried food intake. Avoid medicines causing acidity, tobacco, alcohol. If above medications taken for 4 - 6 weeks continuously does not help. You may require investigations like upper gi endoscopy, ultrasound abdomen etc. See a consulting gastoenterologist.

Yes fortunately nerve weakness cannot be cured. Depending on your type and degree of loss audiologist will suggest you a suitable hearing aid as per your need. Use of hearing aid will keep nerve and brain cells active, hence further progression will slow down. Hearing aid doesn't cure hearing problem, it is just an aid to reduce it's effect.
