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.

My friend has high blood pressure and now he finds it difficult to hear very well what is the cause.
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.

Hearing Loss And Headphones - Are They Connected?

Hearing Loss And Headphones - Are They Connected?

Did you know your earphones are making you deaf? Here's how.

Fact: Roughly 1.1 billion people worldwide within the age group of 12-35 have been found to be at an increased risk of developing hearing problems.

Listening to loud music on handheld devices using earphones has become a common trend among youngsters these days. You might find it very relaxing to plug in your earphones and escape into your own world of music, but you need to know that this can cause serious damage to your ears. The worst part: you won't realise your ears are being damaged until it's too late.

So, exactly how is loud music damaging your ears?

Continuous exposure to loud music from earphones or other sources results in a medical condition known as Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), which can be associated with irreversible damage to the ears resulting in deafness.

When you hear loud music for a considerable amount of time every day it affects your hair cells (nerve cells responsible for sending sound signals to the brain) negatively, so that their ability to respond to sound decreases. If this keeps on happening for many months, eventually the hair cells are damaged beyond repair. These cells cannot be regenerated, making you permanently deaf.

How loud is too loud?

If your ears are exposed to sounds at 95, 100, 105, 110 and 115 dB (decibel, the unit used for measuring sound) for 4 hours, 2 hours, 1 hour, 30 minutes and 15 minutes each day respectively, your ears are at risk of getting severely damaged. Also, playing music at 120 dB or above can damage your ears instantly. You can have a realistic idea about the relation between decibels and sounds you commonly hear by referring to this list:

- 30 dB: soft whisper
- 75 dB: busy traffic
- 90 dB: noise of a motorcycle at 25 feet
- 100 dB: noise of a farm tractor
- 140 dB: jet plane taking off

Moreover, if you experience the following symptoms regularly, there's a high chance that you need to get your ears treated soon:

- A ringing sound in your ears when you are at a quiet place, which vanishes after a few minutes
- You need to raise the volume of TV or music to the fullest to hear it properly
- You have difficulty in hearing people talking at a distance of just 3 feet

How can you prevent the risk of hearing impairment?

When you're using earphones, keep the volume low. Also, using in-ear headsets or noise reduction/cancellation earphones also helps as it lets you hear the music distinctly at lower volumes by cutting out background noise.

CHECK: You need to lower the volume of your music if the person sitting or standing beside you can hear the sound coming out of your earphones.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Ways to Prevent Hearing Damage!

Ways to Prevent Hearing Damage!

Your hearing is one of the most important function your body carries out and sometimes you realize that you are losing your sense of hearing when it is too late to get it back. There are two main reasons for this. One of the reason is age and the other is when the inner ear's hair cells break down and do not pick up sound well.

Here are 7 ways to safeguard your hearing:

  1. Try to avoid loud places: It is not advisable to go to places where you have to shout to be heard, such as in a street, a concert or a construction site.
  2. Buy low noise rating equipment: The equipment in your house will make a sound that you hear the most. Try to avoid this equipment by buying appliances with a low noise rating.
  3. Wear hearing protection at loud places: However, it is true that it is not always possible to avoid loud noises. This is when you need to get hearing protection. Earplugs and earmuffs are two of the best ways to make sure that even when you are in a loud place, your hearing does not get affected. Earplugs and earmuffs generally reduce sound by 15 to 30 decibels, which may be crucial to making sure that later in your life, you do not lose your hearing.
  4. Avoid smokeSmoking raises your chance of hearing loss. Second-hand smoke does the same thing. Therefore, try to avoid, both smoking and secondhand smoking. 
  5. Avoid medications which reduce hearing: Certain medications increase the hearing loss. Therefore, double check with your doctor to make sure your medicines will not make you lose your hearing.
  6. Get your hearing tested: Finally, get your hearing tested as identifying the problem early on can help stop worsen the situation.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

No it cannot be improved. He might have high frequency hearing loss. You need to show his report to me. As with mild hearing loss deciphering words is not an issue.

My sister having hearing and speaking problems from birth. She's now 18 years old. Is it possible to rectify her problems? How much it will cost?

Dear lybrate-user it's depends on hearing loss and how much she benefits with the hearing aid. There are hearing aids and cochlear implants are available for the severe to profound loss also. Since the age is 18 it is difficult to achieve speech in this age. Usually it's easy to improve speech in younger age. If at all you go for hearing aid or implant which will make them aware of the sound but it will not improve the speech understanding and speaking much at this age. My advice is go go for hearing aid and go for listening training to improve the awareness of the sound.
