Your ear has three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear. The middle ear is where sound is captured and sent to your inner ear and brain. If there’s damage to your middle ear, you have a hard time receiving sounds.
According to the Mayo Clinic, about 25 percent of people in the United States between the ages of 55 and 64 have some level of hearing loss. Getting older and being exposed to loud noises increase hearing loss. Signs you may be in the beginning stage of hearing loss include:
You need to consult with an audiologist if your hearing loss is significant enough to require a hearing aid. Testing your hearing regularly can prevent the undiagnosed damage that happens to your ears. Your ears sustain significant injuries over time from repeated audio assaults, such as listening to loud music, using a lawnmower, and getting infections.
Also, hearing loss, tinnitus, balance issues, vertigo and dizziness are common side effects of migraine headaches. Alternatively, migraines can cause sudden hearing loss in one or both of your ears. The good news is audiologists conduct testing to help identify the cause. The results improve your hearing or limit your hearing loss.
