Forgetting Past Events And Hearing Loss In The History Of Head Bumps?
I have a 17-year-old male cousin, his mother said when he was 8 years old he had hit his head when playing with his friend pushed until he was unconscious. After that incident he could not hear for 2 months, after that he could but the doctor told him that his right ear could not function properly anymore. But after all began to improve he could play again with his friends as usual. And from that time he often complained that his right ear was buzzing and often could not hear any more noise, even though at that time he had been told that his right ear was abnormal. Every time he complained he seemed to have forgotten if he was told yesterday or even earlier. Every week a recurrence of complaints is repeated and notified again. Until the age of 17 this year. Because some families growled he was well informed that he had fallen and could not hear for 2 months at the age of 8 years. But he refuted it, he never felt down while playing with his friend and could not hear 2 months as a child. Those of us who heard were astonished that the 2 month time was the day she really felt sad and the fall as a child who had been able to hear normally. We thought he just forgot, because at that time he was a child, but he loudly said he did not forget and gave evidence that I still remember at that age, did he just forget the events he fell and couldn’t hear or was it because of something else?
Hello Risma, thank you for asking.
Injury to the head area may indeed cause various symptoms related to sensing, including symptoms of hearing loss. Hearing loss can be temporary or permanent. The level of hearing loss also varies, from mild to severe. When a person loses some hearing in one ear, then the body will gradually adjust to one ear.
Symptoms of forgetfulness or rebuttal experienced by your cousin, may be due to hearing loss that only occurs in one ear. So there are certain times where he feels normal hearing, but at other times disturbed.
However, it is also possible that the rebuttal is caused by past trauma. Disappointment or fear may cause someone to rebut or erroneous memory, especially if the memory occurs during childhood.
It is best for your cousin to consult with a psychologist or psychiatrist about this problem. However, of course the family must first convince that he does need psychological help. Your cousin may not want to accept help right away, so an explanation must be done in stages. The psychologist or psychiatrist will help your cousin to remember his childhood appropriately and explore what the reasons are so that he makes the rebuttal.
Thus my brief information, hopefully can help find a solution. Regards.
