, I want to ask whether my fellow deaf if talking can be connected? the problem is that my boarding neighbor when talking while shouting and loudly, is said to be deaf but day and night remains the same and this is not one or two people but more girls and guys alike. please help the solution, or my ears are too sensitive.
Hello Wira, Thank you for the question.
The way a deaf person communicates depends on the severity of his hearing ability. Deaf sufferers can communicate with each other with a louder voice or with sign language. People who speak louder may not experience hearing loss or deafness because this condition could be caused by habits or cultural influences. To prove someone has a hearing loss, further examination is needed by a doctor. Doctors need to do an ear examination, hearing test, CT scan, MRI to find the cause of hearing loss or deafness.
Do you hear other sounds (not only your neighbors), you also feel that you hear sounds that are too loud? If so, then maybe you have hyperacusis, which is hearing that becomes more sensitive so that the sound sounds louder than the truth. This condition is caused by repeated loud noise exposure, head injury, migraine but in some conditions it is not caused by an obvious cause. In this condition, it is recommended that you consult with an ENT doctor further. The doctor will determine further treatment after ascertaining the cause. Doctors can recommend sound therapy to familiarize the brain with various sounds or cognitive therapy. In the meantime, please try asking other people's opinions about your neighbor's communication habits to find out if other people also think the same as you. Keep your ears clean. Avoid putting anything in the ear.
I hope this helps.
