Crying for help - Noise Induced Hearing loss

I love music and having been exposed to loud music for a long time and continued to do so as it made me relieve stress and now i have lost some of my hearing :’-( and it could get worse.

I got ringing and blocked ears. I went for a test on Saturday at boots and the audiologist has confirmed hearing loss by upto 70db on the 4k frequency in my left ear which is the speech frequency and referred me to a specialist.

I now have an private appointment with a audiologist on Friday morning.

I’m going through the anger and bargaining stages.

I should be very grateful my right ear is fine and not completely deaf but don't understand how the right ear can be fine when i feel it isn't right and blocked. I'm keep doutbing the results and just don't know what to do or handle this. i will have another test done on Friday but really really scared he's going to say your right ear is also suffering hearing loss.

i don't know how to cope and really scared going completely deaf. i'm only 31 years of age.

Can anyone help me.

Re: Crying for help - Noise Induced Hearing loss

Hi,

Hang in there and see what your Friday appointment shows. You may have a blocked Eustachian tube which is a pain but isn't permanent. Don't panic, because as you stated, why is the deafness only in one ear?

Good luck for Friday

Re: Crying for help - Noise Induced Hearing loss

If you nhave nerve damage there might not be much we can do but if your loss is noise induced you may want to try taking a high quality Magnesium supplement - Research hearing loss and Magnesium and you'll see that it has proven effective in restoring one's hearing - but the sooner you take it the better.

Good luck, and keep us posted!!
