When Common Noises Cause an Uncommon Problem

For most people, every day sounds range from unnoticeable to mildly annoying, but for those with a rare hearing disorder called “hyperacusis,” they can be unbearably painful. Hyperacusis causes the brain to misinterpret or exaggerate the vibrations received from the ear, generating a reaction to a sound that differs from others hearing the same sound.  Something as innocuous as a running faucet or boisterous conversation is painfully loud to those with hyperacusis. This can result in depression,  anxiety, and  the desire to avoid social interactions and public places. It may also cause loss of balance or seizures. Hyperacusis is usually due to head injuries, inner ear damage, viral infections, Lyme’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, certain medications, or epilepsy.

If you have questions about hearing problems and deficits, hearing instruments, or hearing evaluations, or if you just need to talk to a hearing aid specialist about the state of your hearing, we want you to know you are always welcome at ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS. Perhaps you have a hearing aid that you don’t wear because it did not live up to your expectations. If so, bring it to us and let us take a look. It may be that a simple adjustment or a switch in styles is all it will take to bring your hearing abilities up to maximum capacity.

P.S. While hyperacusis is a hearing disorder, it does not necessarily affect one’s ability to hear and often occurs in people with normal hearing.
