3 Different Types of Hearing Loss | Ear Problems


There are three kinds of hearing loss that
a person can have. One is called neurosensory, or sensory neural,
sometimes called nerve hearing loss. Nerve hearing loss is probably a misnomer,
because it’s rarely the nerve. It’s almost always the little hairs inside
the organ of hearing that aren’t converting the mechanical energy into electrical energy. The most common cause of an inner ear or neurosensory
hearing loss is an age related and genetically determined hearing loss. As we get older we all lose some hearing,
and the degree of that hearing loss is very variable. There are individuals in their late fifties
or early sixties who have a rather severe loss and need amplification in the form of
a hearing aid. And there are others who live into their eighties
and nineties that have remarkably good hearing. Other causes of hearing loss include viral
infections, genetic disorders, and, rarely, a benign tumor on the nerve of hearing and
balance called an acoustic neuroma. If you have a benign tumor on the nerve of
hearing and balance called an acoustic neuroma, you will generally have a hearing loss in
only one ear. A hearing loss in one ear should be more alarming
to you than in both ears because it brings up the possibility of a tumor such as an acoustic
neuroma. The second type of hearing loss is a mechanical
one. We call it a conductive hearing loss because
there’s a problem with the mechanism that conducts the sound from the outside to the
inside. A lump of wax will cause a mechanical hearing
loss. A problem with your eardrum will cause a mechanical
hearing loss. A problem with the little bones of hearing
will cause a mechanical hearing loss. Fluid inside your middle ear will cause a
mechanical hearing loss. The third type of hearing loss is called mixed,
a little bit of each.

My right ear just started again after two months my ear feels clogged again and now it's been going on for a week. I'm going to tje docs to hopefully see if it's just wax water or a burst eardrum

  15. I believe have tinnitus. I’ve been hearing ringing on and off in my left ear everyday for the last four weeks. I have been noticing that i’m becoming less aware of the ringing. Can Tinnitus lead to complete loss of hearing?

  16. My dad’s hearing has been becoming more serious since a few years ago, so I acquired the hearing loss solution “vobo fetching unique” (Google it) for him. They didn`t immediately make him clearly hear every word spoken to him, in anyway, but I`ve noticed some slight changes within the last month.

  17. I`m thankful I found this hearing loss treatment “fetching kamkam site” (Google it) for my grandma. It will make me happy knowing it makes her day hanging out with her friends and talking with them without hearing interferences.

  18. My father uses this hearing problems solution “fetching kamkam site” (Google it) everyday. The results cannot be noticed right away, but the item really works.

  20. I acquired this hearing problems treatment “fetching kamkam site” (Google it) for my father, as his hearing has diminished in the last couple of years.

Though my normal hearing did not return, this product really helped me hear much better. It seems working fine with my hearing problem. I won’t stop using it.

  22. My problem is probably a sinus problem. I also sleep with earplugs in, so maybe my drum got pushed in a little bit.

  26. he forgot neural hearing loss…? degeneration of the auditory nerve from the cochlear to the brain. Untreatable, unless using auditory brainstem implant

  27. When I was born I had a virus in my right ear, a few weeks or days later I had a hearing infection. It caused the hearing in my right ear to start deteriorating. I am 13 years old and now I might be getting a cocula Implant. But it’s not that bad, it doesn’t make me any less different.

    I think?

  28. Diet and hygiene play a great role in preventing (or promoting) hearing problems. If one takes care of these, can survive hearing loss in spite of bad genes etc.

    I'm 16 now, and I know that being 86% deaf in one ear is not the norm :U

  30. I`ve been struggling with hearing problems due to my jobs a lot while I was younger. Based on my medical doctor, the problem wasn`t treatable, which triggered my need for personal study.

  33. Recently I got this hearing loss treatment “fetching kamkam site” (Google it) for my dear granny who`s slightly losing her hearing. She decided to try them and did so following the instructions. She says she seems to hear things a lot clearer than ever before and this is real mainly because she does not constantly say "excuse me" or "what" as much as she used to.

  34. I did the Valsalva maneuver and went instantly and profoundly deaf in my left ear. Six months later, I am still profoundly deaf and using a hearing aid that doesn't really help. No one has ever heard of this before. Help! I've been to the ER, had scans, they can't see anything. There are no tumors. There is no liquid.
