hi,

just wondering if anyone has had hearing loss or problems, it seems my hearing is somewhat differant, i mean i had it tested when i first got sick but it seems like i have to really really listen to what people say or i can't hear it all. the tv is a big issue i have to turn it up to hear and it drives me crazy....

Yep, Susie, I have the same problem. If someone wants to talk to me, they have to get my attention first, or I won't hear them. It seems like I'm always asking people to repeat themselves...it gets annoying!!

I'm not sure if it's POTS related because I do have slight hearing loss, but then I got it checked a few years ago, I didn't need hearing aids!

I have problems understanding anyone if there is any other noise in the room. Everything just gets garbled up. Also my hearing is very sensitive now. I can not handle loud noises or even music, it causes a lot of problems for me. Sudden sounds just freak me out now such as the phone ringing or the doorbell. Mrs. Glass

I have a 30-40% hearing loss, but it's never been linked to dysautonomia. It's supposedly due to the incessant ear infections as a baby, 5 surgeries, and hardening ear drums.... but it is odd in that it's from nerve damage, as opposed to a conduction problem.. hmmm.. but anyway, I have hearing aids but I never wear them. Most of the time I'm OK, I just have to ask you to repeat yourself a lot! Especially if it's a noisy room- then I'm miserable.

Hi, I suffer from vestibular hypofunction. My hearing is bad for a 21 year old. They said they think that I had a viral infection in my left ear that caused nerve damage which then caused the severe vertigo I suffer from...as if the whole POTS ordeal wasn't enough!
