HEARING DISORDERS

Hyperacusis.jpg
HYPERACUSIS
HYPERACUSIS

Is a type of reduced tolerance for sound. People with hyperacusis often find ordinary noises too loud, and loud noises uncomfortable or painful. It is often associated with tinnitus and distortion of sounds.

phonophobia.jpg
PHONOPHOBIA

Is defined as a persistent, abnormal, and unwarranted fear of sound. Often, these are normal environmental sounds (e.g., traffic, kitchen sounds, doors closing, or even loud speech) that cannot under any circumstances be damaging. Phonophobia may also be related to, caused by, or confused with hyperacusis.

DYPLACUSIS

DYPLACUSIS

These hearing disorders are normally noised induced and can happen with tinnitus and hearing loss but not necessarily, there are few other causes like ear and brain surgery, accident, history of ear infections and medicaments. There is no cure and the conditions can either resolve on their own or be permanent.

 
 

PREVENTION

Unfortunately hearing in humans cannot be repaired and it does not regenerate. The treatments available are limited apart from hearing aids which can be pricey and may not solved problems like tinnitus or other hearing disorders so if you do not want to come out the doctor with a "you have to learn how to live with it" you have to start taking some measures before it is too late.
