Sometimes , I hear less. And almost it is normal. Why it happens I do not know.

DNB (Neurosurgery) , MBBS
Neurosurgeon,
This is not a neurosurgical question though I would like to explain. There is a communication between middle ear and throat. It's called as eustachian tube. It regulates pressure inside ear cavity. You can feel 'click' in your ear everytime you swallow.Patency of the tube and atmospheric pressure can affect hearing for the time being. Like in airplane because of pressurised cabins you tend to hear less and your hearing improves as you swallow something. It's completely physiological. Nothing serious. Persistent deafness needs investigations in consultation with Ent surgeon .

General Physician,
In general, you lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day, but the loss is not visible as new hair grow in their place. However, if you lose more than a 100 strands in a day and more than 200 strands on the day you shampoo, you may be suffering from what is known as excessive hair fall. Certain factors or reasons may cause you to lose hair at an alarming rate, which are, 1. Thyroid problemsYour thyroid is responsible for your body’s overall functioning. The hormones (primarily T4 and T3), which it produces help in regulating metabolic activities. Problems with your thyroid gland can cause your hormone levels to rise or fall to unhealthy levels, which can result in hair fall. You can improve the functioning of your thyroid gland through a diet rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, protein and Vitamins A, B and C. 2. Scalp infections-Infections of the scalp can also be one of the factors that may cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate. Of the different scalp infections, the ringworm scalp infection is the most common. Although this fungal infection can occur in any part of your body, when it develops on your scalp, you end up losing clumps of hair. Alongside the use of anti-fungal medications, even anti-fungal shampoos and creams can provide you with respite from the problem. 3. Poor diet, Gorging on unhealthy foods or going on a crash diet can result in the lack of essential nutrients in your body, which are required to maintain healthy hair. Furthermore, since hair is made of protein, having a balanced diet consisting of proteins and vitamin- rich foods is a must. 4. Stress gives rise to certain conditions such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (hair loss caused post-pregnancy or surgery) and trichotillomania (an impulsive need to pull your hair out), which can cause you to lose significant amount of hair. To avert a hair loss crisis caused by stress, make it a point to do some simple stress-reducing exercises, such as meditation or breathing exercises. 5. Using hair styling products like hair colours and straighteners can cause you to experience hair fall problems. Your hair not only becomes dull and dry due to their use, but also becomes weak and brittle, leading to a gradual loss of hair. Regular oiling and use of homemade hair masks are some of the ways you can try to counter the negative effects of these hair styling products. 6. The drugs that are used in the treatment of cancer not only destroy the fast-growing cancer cells, but also the healthy blood cells in your body. For this reason, consuming foods that possess cancer-fighting properties (like oatmeal, tomato, almonds, garlic etc) is a sure-shot way of fighting the disease as well as averting any side-effects that may arise because of the treatment. 7. Alopecia areata. Lastly, hair fall can also be caused by alopecia areata, which is a kind of hair loss that takes place when your body’s immune system erroneously attacks your hair follicles, and prevents growth of new hair. 8. Genetics. The origin of your severe hair fall or baldness can be traced back to your ancestors. So, your genes can be a factor behind your hair fall problem. If this is the cause, your body then becomes unable to produce new hair. Apart from the changes that you can make in your lifestyle to address the causes of your hair fall, there are also techniques out there that you can employ to permanently treat your problem, such as platelet rich plasma, mesotherapy, stem cell therapy, ozone activated platelet rich plasma & hair transplant. 4 Common Combing Mistakes That Lead To Excessive Hairloss You will be surprised to know that about 35 million men and 21 million women suffer from excessive hairfall in India. Excessive hair fall can be the result of certain illnesses, hormonal changes, over-use of hair products that contain chemicals or a poor diet. What you may not have considered is that you can also lose a lot of hair by combing it the wrong way. Check if you’re making these common combing mistakes. 1. Are you combing your hair from the roots down? If you’re combing your hair you should always start from the middle while working it downwards. Move the comb upwards (near the roots) only when there are no more tangles remaining in the bottom half. If you start combing from your roots, you may have to fight more tangles on the way to the bottom. This induces strain on your scalp, and increases hair breakage. The end result is weak hair and roots, and more hair fall. 2. Are you combing post the application of a hair product? A comb should never be used just after the application of a hair paste, serum or cream for treatment or styling. You must use only your fingers to comb through your hair once you've applied a styling product. If you use a comb post-application of a styling product, it not only loses its effect, but may also harm your hair and its texture. Consequently, it may lead to increased breakage and hair loss over time. 3. Are you detangling your hair after shampooing or washing? Hair is known to be at its weakest when wet, which can also make it prone to tangling. Combing and excessive pulling of tangled, wet hair increases your chances of hair breakage and eventual hair loss. To avert water-induced frowns, you can try giving a comb-through before wetting your hair in the shower. Alternatively, you can also try combing your hair during a shower. Apply the conditioner first; next, untangle the strands by using only your fingers, and then use a wide-toothed comb just before washing. 4. Are you regularly back-combing your hair? Sometimes people back-comb their hair from the roots working towards the ends. This hair teasing technique adds volume and texture to your hair. Although it’s a great trick, its regular use may damage your hair cuticles, which as a result, may also ruin your hair’s quality, lead to frizzy hair and increase breakage and hair loss. To get the element of volume without the damage, you can try light hair sprays, which help you in getting a similar look. Dandruff may be the result of a dry scalp, or a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis. It could also be caused by eczema, psoriasis, or, very commonly, an overgrowth of a yeast like fungus called malassezia. Drugstore remedies might include shampoos with zinc pyrithione, which targets fungus and bacteria; ketoconazole, which also fights fungus; coal tar and selenium sulphide, which slow the growth and die-off of skin cells on your scalp; and salicylic acid. 1) Aspirin contains the same active ingredient (salicylic acid) as many medicated dandruff shampoos. Keep flaking in check by crushing two aspirins to a fine powder and adding it to the normal amount of shampoo you use each time you wash your hair. Leave the mixture on your hair for 1-2 minutes, then rinse well and wash again with plain shampoo. 2) Wet your hair and then rub a handful of baking soda vigorously into your scalp. Skip the shampoo and go right to rinsing. Baking soda reduces overactive fungi that can cause dandruff. Your hair may get dried out at first, but after a few weeks your scalp will start producing natural oils, leaving your hair softer and free of flakes so they can be washed away. For natural treatments. Before showering, massage 3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil into your scalp and let sit for about an hour. Shampoo normally. You can also look for a shampoo that already contains coconut oil.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all wot I can get from yo description you have a sensory neural type of hearing loss. If yes then medicines and healthy life style with controlled sugar n b helps in reducing the chances of further deterioration of hearing ability. So its better with medicines you just go for hearing aids, to be specific go for digital programmable hearing aids that will add on to your better lifestyle. Consult with me with your audiogram report.

I have been diagnosed with moderate conductive hearing loss. The doctor has advised that I need a procedure - to be exact, stapedectomy. My hearing loss started after my pregnancy and I understand that it may be due to my genetics as well. My question is, how safe is this procedure and will my normal life change afterwards? I am a health freak and I love gymming, aerobics and constantly move around. Will my life change?

You can lead a normal life after stapedectomy. Hearing improvement depends on the amount of boneconduction affected and intactness of cochlear haircells. So donot worry about surgery or its side affects.

My mother has high blood pressure for years, more than 10 years and she has to take medicine[prescribed at the polyclinic] daily to control the pressure from increasing, thing is if she skip the medicine, the reading does goes up and sometimes she skip the medicine taking with intention as she strongly believe long period consumption of'western' medicine is detrimental to one's body organs. So she prefer non-medication method from hear-say basis, like consuming certain vegetables, is there truth in this non-medication approach? How do we manage hypertension? Is medication the only option? And is it true that with hypertension, getting work-up, angry, excited must be avoided at all means because this will lead to heart attack?

Does she wear spects for weak eye sight. Tv programmes claim to'cure' eyesight! does it ever happen? eye power keep fluctuating with age and in growing up kids, may be gets corrected but not in seniors. Tell her medicines for high bp, besides lowering the bp, also protect the heart. Vegetables and fruits are good but cannot lower bp once it has been recorded on a higher level - 120/80 is safe, 130/85 is borderline-no medicines, just reduce the salt, above 130/85 some safe medicines like beta blockers are given to reduce the risk of heart attack & stroke. Yes she has to keep her cool.

I have some hearing problem I can hear sound but can't understand what they are telling.
Hi generally we understand hearing in frequencies and hertz. Our day to day activities includes different sounds in which speech is one of the important things we hear. Different sounds are at different frequences. So if we have hearing with in that range of these sounds only then we can hear these particular sounds if not we miss them or sometimes we even miss particpular words or sounds in the spoken speech. You seem to have hearing loss. Consult an audiologist who would assist you with the tests required and may explain you in detail about your hearing.

Hello Doctor, my cousin brother has never been in a relationship but has had a number of crushes/attractions (which he calls" love") over the years to an extent that at times he behaves like a psycho lover. His" love" lasts for at the most 2 months and he is well aware of it. Though, at times, I make it clear that I am not going to hear about his irrational and childish activities, he still keeps on sharing them with me as well as all his relatives and friends and is dependant on us for suggestions. Currently, he is in love with some one in his workplace who has made it very clear that she is" not available" But, even then he says" he desperately wants her" I have made him understand that he should behave when in office as it might have a negative impact on his career. Although, he is a diligent employee, he still keeps pursuing this girl in question and his antiques have unnerved a few of his coworkers in the process. Everyone jokes about him. But, he does not get any hint that people are having a negative impression about his family too. He has always been pampered by most of his relatives and has had psychological problems as a child too. Please suggest a way so that I can help him understand as to how he can be a rational and responsible being.

Also let him take responsibility for his own behaviour. At 27, he is capable of solving his own problems. These are his problems, don't consider these problems as your problems, and let him handle it. Do not encourage him to behave like a child. Maintain some distance from his personal life. If he has been pampered by his relatives as a child, he has got used to this kind of treatment, and the same thing he is expecting from you now. If he has had some psychological problems as a child then please take him to a counsellor. The counsellor will do the needful.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, as per the details provided I presume that your wife must be diagnosed to have sensory neural hearing loss. Regard the pain you need to rule out if there are any other ear conditions with a good ent but regard the hearing loss like you are already aware from other professionals that it cannot be reversed which is very true, if it really bothering your wife in terms of hearing you need to go for a hearing aid on the affected side.

If it is mild conductive hearing loss you would be able to hear sounds above 40db. That means you can hear sounds in left ear if it is slightly loud. Any good ent surgeon should be able to treat you.

Hi, its a good question. As we all know that prevention is better than cure, so it is your sole responsibility to protect your ear from detrimental effects of certain antibiotics, noise exposure, loud music etc. There are many symptoms of hearing loss including tinnitus, frequent infections, poor blood supply to cochlea, and many more. So try to avoid harmful situations that can create a major effect on your hearing status.

TO be very short and to the point answer is no allopathic, ayurvedic medicines help in regaining the hearing ability. The best and effective management is to go for digital programmable hearing aids in both the ears (if report showing bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Analog or semi digital hearing aids are also not recommended. Try to keep the sugar level and blood pressure within normal range if you have any abnormal value. Waiting for your feedback.

No dought sound pollution is a problem in our country, it is better to take two measures 1. You can request to your neighborhood to control his kid while you go for study. 2. You can shift your study place or put a cotton piece in both the ear while studying because to be habitual of any thing may disturb your physiology of hearing.
