Left Ear Hears Repeated Sounds?
Hello, good evening. I want to ask since a few minutes ago my left ear feels heard a double sound when I speak and also when listening to other sounds (TV sound, people talking). I felt very disturbed because it was as sharp as the incoming sounds. I wonder why my left ear and how to overcome it huh? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Hearing loss, as if the voice sounds double and reverberated, can be caused by the following conditions:
Exposure to excessive noise
Stiff and clogged earwax (impact cerumen)
Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear), or otitis external (inflammation of the external ear)
Tinnitus, can occur due to aging, Meniere's disease, acoustic neuroma, Eustachian tube disorders, acoustic neuroma, atherosclerosis, hypertension, blood vessel malformations around the ear
The effect of ototoxic drugs, such as antibiotics, aspirin, anti-depressants, diuretics
Other medical conditions, such as head or neck tumors, jaw joint disorders, head or neck injuries, otosclerosis, psychological disorders, excessive caffeine consumption, smoking habits, etc.
Your condition is not always dangerous. However, if it is true that the complaint is really bothering you, it means you need to see yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor. Through hearing function tests, otoscopy, CT scans, and other supporting tests, often the right treatment can be decided by the doctor so that your condition is resolved.
In the meantime, do it first:
Wear hearing protection when in a noisy environment (such as by using certain earplugs)
Don't listen to noise, including listening to music through earphones
Keep your ears clean, do not carelessly put anything in them
Do not drink or drip any medication to the ear
Expand relaxation and meditation
Hope this helps ...
