Some Triggers For Hearing Loss?
Hello. I want to ask. I have several complaints in the near future. But what I know is that some of these complaints have happened several times over the past two years (more or less). Yesterday I was asked by my doctor for an audiometry test and two other hearing tests that I forgot. The test results are that I have a deaf sensory right ear … (forgetfulness) … heavy while the left one is deaf sendori … (forgetfulness) .. moderate. Finally I was advised to use a hearing aid. But the manufacturing process takes two weeks. The problem is that these days I feel that my head hurts more often. Like the bones in my head want to break. I once walked and it felt like a puddle of water and the things around me trembled like cloth when exposed to the wind. And it feels nauseous. Then my ears still ached several times each day. Even though I’m sure if I don’t have the flu at all. Then my ears ring a long time. And suddenly it was like being in the depths of the water in my ears. Approximately what should I do during the process of waiting for my hearing aid? And are all these illnesses really caused by my hearing loss? Thank you. Sorry if my explanation is messy.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
You experience sensorineural deafness, which is hearing loss caused by damage to the auditory nerve contained in the inner ear. Some triggers for sensorineural hearing loss are heredity or birth defects, infections, head injuries, stroke attacks, aging, drugs and are often exposed to loud sounds. It is said that deafness is severe if the sufferer can only hear loud sounds, such as sirens. Meanwhile, moderate deafness if at close range alone the patient is difficult to hear the speaker.
Disturbances in the inner ear, can cause symptoms of hearing loss, impaired balance (when walking, objects and puddles feel vibrate like a cloth blowing in the wind), ears ringing, there is fluid in the ear and headaches. These symptoms can be a sign in the direction of the cause of your hearing loss, whether due to infection, tumors, bleeding or trauma to noise in the inner ear (auditory nerve and balance). To determine the cause, further tests are needed, such as CT-scan or MRI of the head. For that, consult with your ENT specialist who is in charge in order to obtain further examination and treatment.
To relieve symptoms, you can take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol. Avoid being in noisy places, avoid traveling alone and avoid driving a vehicle.
Thus hopefully useful.
