How To Treat Temporary Hearing Loss.

Have you ever left a loud concert or had a bad head cold and then realized that you couldn’t hear out of one or both of your ears? If you answered yes to this question then what you were experiencing is known as a temporary hearing loss. There are many things that can cause a temporary hearing loss from Noise-induced hearing loss to a clogged ear canal. If you feel that you are experiencing a temporary hearing loss your first step would be to visit with a hearing healthcare professional. They will give you a thorough hearing evaluation to determine the cause of your hearing loss. At the evaluation, your hearing healthcare professional will ask you several questions concerning your current health status and hearing problems. This will help them determine whether there is anything in your past that suggests an ongoing health issue. Afterward, he or she will examine your ears for any signs of abnormalities before giving you a simple hearing test to narrow down the nature of your condition. Some conditions may require advanced testing that will require you to visit with otolaryngologist (ENT).

To treat a temporary hearing loss there are a few things one can do:

  1. Give your ears a break. The next time you notice your ears are ringing when you’re at a concert with friends or when in the car, take a break from the noise by moving into the hallway or the restroom for a few minutes, or turn the volume down on car radios and televisions.
  2. Remove the blockage. If your hearing loss is the result of blockage in your ear canal, your hearing may return to normal once the blockage is removed.

 

Since so many different issues can lead to a temporary hearing loss, it’s important for you to find out what’s causing it and get the underlying condition treated. Not all hearing loss can be corrected; however, the only way to know for sure is to contact a hearing healthcare professional.
