Is sensorineural hearing loss progressive?

Is sensorineural hearing loss progressive?

Depends...: on underlying cause, of which there are a plethora. Don't sit on this. Get a definitive diagnosis and find out why you have it. If it is unilateral, ie one-sided, you need inner ear & brain imaging to look for asymmetric findings & evidence of possible demyelination. If it's symmetric, you may have just listened to too much loud music. Follow advice of audiologist, otolaryngologist & neurologist. ...Read more

It can : Yes it can. Conductive hearing loss is a form of hearing impairment due to a lesion in the external auditory canal or middle ear.Untreated chronic ear infections can lead to conductive hearing loss; draining the infected middle ear drum will usually return hearing to normal. Development of cholesteatoma-related to chronic otitis media- can also lead to hearing loss. ...Read more

Will hearing aid use prevent further damage and hearing loss for someone with sensory neuronal hearing loss?

Will hearing aid use prevent further damage and hearing loss for someone with sensory neuronal hearing loss?

Perhaps.: I would maintain that the answer is "maybe". There is at least the suggestion that if you restore stimulus to the auditory cortex via the current hearing aid technology, that part of the brain that has been deprived of input can actually improve it's function. The brain has "plasticity" and might well slow or even arrest additional hearing loss if incoming signals are restored. ...Read more

Can surgery cure hearing loss from osteogenesis imperfecta?

Can surgery cure hearing loss from osteogenesis imperfecta?

Yes: Osteogenesis imperfecta is often associated with otospongiosis (otosclerosis) which can lead to fixation of the stapes bone. This fixation of the stapes bone can manifest as a conductive hearing loss. If stapes fixation is thought to be the cause of the conductive loss, corrective surgery on the stapes can be helpful especially if there is sufficient cochlear reserve. ...Read more

Will hearing loss from persistent ear fluid cause developmental delays in my child?

Will hearing loss from persistent ear fluid cause developmental delays in my child?

A fluctuating : Conductive hearing loss may cause a child not to discern correct pronunciation of words, causing speech (articulation) delays. There's still debate re: whether it causes delays in receptive (language comprehension) & expressive language ( verbalization of thoughts/ideas).

Can Endolymphatic Hydrops cause 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness instead of episodic spinning? Bilat Conductive hearing loss ECOG Left .36 Right .39

Sounds Good to me: I would guess that though you have 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness that there are SPIKES of significant worsening of those symptoms....and that's where I would place your ACUTE EPISODES of Meniere's or whatever you'd like to call it. That's almost like my headache patients who have CONSTANT HEADACHES but there are episodes where it gets HORRIBLE....those can definitely be migraines! Make sense? ...Read more

Can wilson's disease result in permanent brain damage leading to memory loss?

Can wilson's disease result in permanent brain damage leading to memory loss?

Not likely: Wilson's disease is caused by the loss of an enzyme that allows copper to accumulate in the body. Most of this is taken up by the liver, causing lots of liver problems. It can also affect the nervous system. However, most of the nervous problems are motor, with some personality changes possible as well. Memory is not typically affected. ...Read more
