The Link Between Left-handedness And Reduced Hearing?
I want to ask, I’ve been used to doing activities with my left/left hand since I was little, so does it affect my right hearing because I often use my left handrnrnThank you,
Hi Yoga, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Hearing starts from the auricle to catch sound, and sound waves are transmitted to the eardrum, then the waves are continued to the middle ear through the ossicles until finally reaching the cochlea or cochlea which functions as a hearing receptor, then the cochlea sends signals to the nervous system in the brain. And the possible causes of your hearing loss on the right side compared to the left are:
Accumulation of cerumen or earwax Inflammation of the outer ear or called otitis externa Damaged eardrum due to rupture or perforation Inflammation of the ossicles Inflammation of the middle ear or otitis media Damage to the auditory nerve You should consult an ENT specialist for your ear condition. To find out the doctor will do a physical examination of your ear, and perform a hearing test, and a neurological exam.
Some suggestions for you
Avoid picking your ears too often. Avoid listening to music too loudly. Avoid using earphones or headsets. Thank you, I hope this is useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
