Hearing loss

I have a few questions, can hearing loss over time repair? Im in my early twenties.

A loud horn sounded off very close to my ear a year or so back. When I woke up the next morning for most of the day, there was a pretty loud distorted sound (kind of like between stations on a radio) and some ringing. Since then that ear feels very different from the other, things seem further away and it does seem blocked in a way (but not like it would if it were blocked with wax), it also feels kind of spacially different.

Does this mean I have pernament hearing damage in that ear? and is there anyway for me to examine this?

Thank you,


Sponsors Lightbulb

Re: Hearing loss


To determine if there is any hearing loss in that ear, visit an audiologist who can perform pure tone and speech testing.

I'm sorry -- I can't answer your other question re: hearing loss improving over time.

Hope this helps!
