Decreased Hearing Function During 5 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
In the morning, I want to ask, why is my second child pregnant within 5 weeks of pregnancy, my ears feel bud? What are the causes and solutions?
Hello Astrid Aldiansyah,
During pregnancy physiological changes occur in our body, including exacerbations (the appearance of symptoms or worsening of symptoms) of the actual diseases from before pregnancy. Hearing loss that occurs during pregnancy is very rare. However, if there is a decrease in hearing function during pregnancy, it is usually associated with the following causes:
Otosclerosis. Otosclerosis is an auditory bone growth disorder (pre-pregnancy). The symptoms experienced by the ears are often ringing, deafness is gradual, and patients tend to speak in a loud voice because they cannot hear. This disorder can already be felt by a woman before becoming pregnant but its nature is mild, the process of pregnancy makes the symptoms felt by the patient more severe so that the patient is just starting to complain of symptoms of deafness. The risk of deafness increases in each pregnancy.
Sudden sensory hearing loss (sudden neural sensory deafness). The mechanism of this disease during pregnancy is not yet known. Symptoms are marked by sudden deafness and ringing in the ears. If you experience this complaint you should immediately consult a doctor. Some sudden neural sensory deafness associated with pregnancy is reversible (symptoms disappear during childbirth) or may also persist.
Probum prob. Blockage of earwax that covers the entire ear canal so that the ear feels full and can also be accompanied by complaints of hearing loss on the side that experiences it (though usually mild).
The diagnosis can be made from history history of complaints, patient risk factors, history of long-term exposure to environmental noise, and also based on physical examination and hearing aids such as audiometry or CT imaging.
Further consultation with an ENT specialist is needed to determine the diagnosis of your symptoms. Treatment will be adjusted to the diagnosis. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
