Re: Can stress hurt hearing?

if hearing is effected by stress, you need to reduce the stress, learning how to relax helps
tinnitus is a noise from the ear, stress sometimes causes this for a while

stress can sometimes cause very sensitive hearing, so you can hear things that you normally cant

Re: Can stress hurt hearing?

Hi everybody,
I would be very glad if somebody can give me an advice! I have a hearing problem since more than 5 months, i feel that my ears are plugged! like who has water inside the ears or like somebody in a very deep place! I went to 3 specialists (in Germany), and they all said you do not have any problem in your ears!!!! This hearing problem appeared after I have had depression and a lot of stress due to problems in my work and study!

I am still suffering from this problem and it makes me crazy, i can not concentrate on my study, work. I do not like to leave home and make contacts with others! I can not hear well and i have to ask what everybody is saying!!!

Please if somebody knows what is going on to help me.

Thanks
Saida

Re: Can stress hurt hearing?

I'm not an expert but it sounds like you could possibly have some sort of TMJ (jaw) problem. If you clench your teeth together, it can cause certain muscles or nerves that link to your ear to spasm. This can cause a sort of throbbing or ringing in your ear or even the feeling that your ear is plugged. Try posting in the TMJ forum, even if you're not a teeth clencher.

Teeth clenching seems to be common among people suffering from stress.
