What is noise induced hearing loss?

Hearing loss due to loud noises. It results from exposure to loud noise over a long period of time, or from a once-off exposure to an extremely loud noise.

Symptoms of noise induced hearing loss

  • Hearing difficulty

  • Frequent exposure to loud noise

  • Ringing in the ears

  • High-pitched tinnitus / ringing sounds in the ear

Questions your doctor may ask to check for noise induced hearing loss

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose noise induced hearing loss

  • Do you have hearing problems?

  • Have you ever been exposed to loud noises, such as at a construction site or live concert?

  • Do you have tinnitus (ringing in the ears)?

  • Do you have a ringing sound like high pitched metallic tone or shriek/whistling in your ear?

Treatment for noise induced hearing loss

In cases of once-off exposures to loud noises, steroids may help to reduce the degree of hearing loss. However, in cases of loud noise exposure over a long time, treatment cannot reverse the hearing loss. Hearing aids can help if the symptoms are bothersome.
