Types of hearing loss
When hearing loss occurs suddenly, it is termed “sudden sensorineural hearing loss.” The symptoms of this condition involve a sudden, rapid, loss of hearing, either all at once, or over several days, typically in just one ear. The symptoms indicating this condition include feeling as if the ear is full, hearing a popping sound followed by deafness in the ear, dizziness, or ringing in the ear. This condition may occur due to several causes:
- Ear infections, bacterial or viral
- Inner ear disorders
- Head impacts
- Chronic inflammation
- Side effect of some medications
- Blood circulation problems
- Neurological conditions, MS
- Meniere’s disease
Immediate medical intervention is essential in cases of sudden hearing loss. If you or a loved one is experiencing this condition, we urge you to schedule an appointment with Orlando ENT Associates at once, as the hearing loss may become permanent if not treated at once.
