Will pe tubes ever cause scarring which can decrease the ability to hear?

Will pe tubes ever cause scarring which can decrease the ability to hear?

Highly unlikely: Making an incision and placing a tube in the ear drum can cause scarring. However, it is highly unlikely that the scarring would cause any hearing loss, even after repeated tube placement. Having the condition for which the tubes are being placed is usually casuing hearing loss. The benefits of tube placement far out-weigh not having them. ...Read more

My doctor told me I have allergic rhinitis. he gave me a shot & said it was a "histamine shot" did I hear that wrong? or could it be an antihistamine?

My doctor told me I have allergic rhinitis. he gave me a shot & said it was a "histamine shot" did I hear that wrong? or could it be an antihistamine?

Antihistamine: A possible shot would be an antihistamine shot such as Benadryl. Benadryl, however, causes drowsiness and thus is undesirable sometimes. Another shot for bad allergies is a corticosteroid shot (a steroid shot), which works in a different manner compared to how antihistamines work. ...Read more

How does fatigue affect hearing ability? I can't hear what's going on when i'm tired.

How does fatigue affect hearing ability? I can't hear what's going on when i'm tired.

Fatigue and hearing: What you describe is most likely a function of your central hearing mechanism, or processing. I suspect if we looked at your actual hearing levels, they would not change even when you are tired. However, your attention, focus and processing are all impacted by fatigue and are all necessary for auditory (hearing) processing. Obtaining an objective hearing test is always an important first step. ...Read more

Do you lose vision & hearing if all dorsal roots & what's equivalent in the trigeminal area get cut off? (losing ability to feel any pain basically)

No: Is this just a theoretical question? Loss of the input from the dorsal root ganglia wouldn't just eliminate pain sensation, it would eliminate all tactile sensation: Fine touch, vibration, kinesthetic sense, temperature, light touch, crude touch...not a situation that's compatible with any kind of functional life. Control of muscles requires sensory feedback. ...Read more

I've been on ability 10mg for a week and am still not seeing clearly.. In fact I've begun to hear whispering voices at night which has never happened?

Abilify (aripiprazole): You need to be in touch with the prescribing doctor. It isn't clear if you are referring to an ocular side effect or a psychological visual matter, or a matter of general clarity of thought. In any of those cases, you need to speak to the prescriber. Whispering voices? Many possibilities, but one is that the dose is too low. ...Read more

If I have good low frequency hearing ability and bad high frequency hearing ability... What does it imply... Can I do anything to improve my hearing?

Noise trauma: Generally, high frequency hearing loss with preserved low frequency hearing is seen in patients with noise-induced or age-related hearing loss.
