Think of hearing as a partnership between your ears and your brain. When someone speaks, your brain processes the sounds so that you can understand them. That’s called cognitive load. When you have untreated hearing loss, the speech signals coming into your brain are
degraded, so your brain has to work much harder to process them.

When more brain resources are used for understanding sounds,
other brain tasks such as memory and comprehension can suffer.

Losing your hearing shouldn't prevent you from getting out of the house and doing what you love.

Misophonia occurs when trigger sounds such as eating or chewing loudly or breathing heavily drive that person to distraction, anxiety or anger. The obvious solution would be earplugs or headphones.

Unfortunately, that can often make the scenario worse.

This article will take an in-depth look at misophonia and headphones.

"A study revealed that people who smoke are almost twice as likely as nonsmokers to develop hearing loss."

Interesting discovery.

"In most cases, middle ear fluid, or “ear congestion,” lasts a few days during a cold virus and then dissipates. However, when the middle ear fluid causes pain or hearing loss lasting longer than a month, it is time to follow up with your physician."
