Are earaches symptoms of hearing loss and deafness?

Not usually: Otalgia, or ear pain, can be caused by infections of the middle ear, infection of the outer ear, referred pain from the jaw, or eustachian tube dysfunction. The last item is the feeling you may get of "popping" when on an airplane as it is ascending or descending due to changes in pressure. Hearing loss and deafness can be the result of repeated severe ear infections, but this is not common. ...Read more

How are hearing loss and otitis media related?

How are hearing loss and otitis media related?

Hearing loss/OM: You hear when sound waves jiggle your eardrum, which in turn moves the tiny bones in the middle ear. They then send signals to the inner ear, up to the brain and then you hear. In otitis media, there is often fluid or pressure problems in that middle ear space that makes the movement of those tiny little bones poor at best, so affects the transmission of the sound waves through the middle ear. ...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
