Introduction to Hyperacusis
Many people that suffer from Hyperacusis live in a world where the level of noise or sound is at a maximum. Their ears have lost the ability to control the volume of incoming sound and are quit often in a lot of pain. Others find themselves oversensitive to many everyday sounds and quite a few find that they also have Tinnitus or ringing in the ears as a part of their Hyperacusis. Do you fit in with some of these poeple and if so how are you dealing with it?
There are some interesting thought going on in the medical community when working with Hyperacusis:
- Pink noise – wearing a type of hearing aid that emits other sounds.
- Brain Retraining – therapy sessions from 2 to 8 hours in length listening to pink noise.
- Steroids – somewhat effective, especially early after onset of the problem.
- Sound Therapy
Short Description of Hyperacusis
Hyperacusis refers to a disorder of perception of loudness or an unusual tolerance to ordinary environmental sounds.
Symptoms of Hyperacusis
Hearing sounds that sound louder than they are, such as:
- Running faucet
- Kitchen appliance
- Car engine
- Loud conversation
People with Hyperacusis suffer from:
- Ear pain
- Relationship issues
- Difficulty connecting with others
Hyperacusis is a disorder in the perception of sound. Patients suffering from the condition appear overly sensitive to a range of sounds. They often find many noises to be unbearable and painfully loud. It is not the same as” recruitment,” a disorder that can be a normal consequence of hearing loss and is connected with the unusual perception of sound as the volume is increased.
Hyperacusis affects both children and adults but is known to be a rare condition. It is estimated that one in 50,000 people are affected. Hyperacusis may be due to a number of factors with the most common is damage to the cochlea due to exposure to loud sounds like those heard at working environments, concerts, gun ranges, air bag deployment and fireworks. It also often affects people who have suffered from a brain injury as well as those that suffer from tinnitus, a common condition wherein the patient hears a ringing noise in their ears.
Etiology of Hyperacusis
Our ears perceive sound as vibrations and if you have hyperacusis, the brain confuses or exaggerates certain vibrations. Therefore, even if you get the same signals as others, the brain reacts differently from them. This is the cause for all of the discomfort. People are not necessarily born with the hearing disorder but it usually results from specific health issues and diseases including:
- Injury to the head because of an airbag deployment
- Damage to one or both ears due to drugs or toxins
- Viral infections that directly affect the inner ear or the facial nerve as in Bell’s palsy
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
- Lyme Disease
- Tay-Sachs’s disease
- Migraine headaches
- Using Valium regularly
- Certain kinds of epilepsy
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Meniere’s disease
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Surgery on your jaw or face
- Williams syndrome
Also, being around loud sounds can trigger the disorder. For instance, a single loud gunshot can cause it. However, it can also occur from being near loud noises over a long period of time.
Diagnosis of Hyperacusis
The audiologist will begin performing a thorough physical examination including medical history that includes the length and severity of the symptoms. A hearing test or audiogram will be done and it will show a graph that charts the patient’s capability to hear sounds at different frequencies.
Sound Therapy is a proven modality that helps control symptoms of hyperacusis. You wear a headset on one or both ears and listen to certain programmed sounds that heal your body and mind.
It is important to protect your ears from all sorts of noise pollution. There are sophisticated ear plugs designed with volume controls and other smart earplugs made for the military. You could also wear noise-cancelling earphones in order to prevent shocks to your hearing.
