“I’m too old to use my ears…” Often can hear this sentence from the old people, even our parents. It seems that we have formed a consensus unconsciously: when people are old, their listening is naturally not good.

Here, we have to correct a mistake for you: old age, ear back, not necessarily the “age” caused by the disaster. Only the old-age deafness is caused by the natural aging of the body, but other types of deafness, which is really the manifestation of the disease, need early treatment.

So, we must change the concept of “old, bad listening”. We can’t neglect the abnormal listening. Let’s listen to Li Changqing, director of Otolaryngology of Beijing elderly hospital!

It’s time to see a doctor for these signs in the ear!

A. when talking to parents, they often shout at Ta for half a day without reflecting, or TA can’t hear what you say clearly, and always let you repeat it;

B. when talking to parents, TA can hear the voice, but does not know which direction the voice comes from. It is likely that there is a problem in one ear, which leads to inaccurate sound orientation;

C. when talking to your parents, Ta often stares at your mouth and looks at your mouth shape; if you talk to TA with a mask one day, TA can’t hear clearly, which indicates that TA’s hearing may have problems.

Tinnitus don’t care!

A. there is a “Dong Dong” beating sound in the ear. The beating rhythm is the same as that of the heart

This is likely to be: vascular fluctuations tinnitus, the rhythm of fluctuations and pulse rhythm is the same. This kind of symptom often appears in the high blood pressure patient, the rest bad crowd.

How to deal with it: measure your blood pressure with a sphygmomanometer. In this case, it’s not enough to treat the ears alone. We need to control the blood pressure well.

B. there is a “buzzing” sound in the ear, just like a cicada going in, especially when people are sleeping in the dead of night, which affects sleeping

This is likely to happen: cicada’s chirp in nervous tinnitus. Tinnitus may not be accompanied by hearing loss, but if you feel that your hearing is affected, it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible.

C. ears are noisy like trains

The occurrence of this situation is likely to be: a kind of nervous tinnitus, often seen in the rest is not good, emotional fluctuations. If the hearing is not affected, you can pay more attention to rest and take some vasodilators, but if you feel hearing loss, it is recommended to go to the hospital as soon as possible.

D. ears feel insects crawling

In diabetic patients, the peripheral nerves are sensitive; or they often pull out their ears, which are very clean.

Suggestion: in the early stage of tinnitus, whether the hearing is affected or not, let’s go to the hospital to register and have a look. Because some tinnitus may not lead to hearing loss, some tinnitus may lead to hearing loss, and some tinnitus may be the precursor of other diseases So, we have to take tinnitus seriously.

Is it a good habit to pull out your ears?

Answer: it’s not a good habit The doctor advised us to try to keep our ears as small as possible. Under normal circumstances, earwax will naturally fall out with our swallowing and mouth opening activities.

However, there is also a special case. There is a group of people who belong to the “oily ear” (the secretion in the ear is sticky and cannot be discharged automatically). You need to go to the hospital to clean up regularly, usually for 3 months to half a year. Special reminder, “oil ear” whether there is a problem or not, you have to go to the hospital regularly to clean up, otherwise a long time will appear “induration”.

If the ears are itchy, you can use a cotton swab or a cotton swab dipped in 3% boric acid alcohol! Remember not to use 95% alcohol at home!!!

Hearing aid, just buy an expensive one and put it on?

Tell you: This is absolutely not possible! Hearing aids are the same as glasses, because each deaf patient’s deafness degree and frequency drop are different. Therefore, if you want to wear hearing aids, please go to the otolaryngology department of the hospital to check your ears first, then ask a professional examiner to test your hearing, and then select hearing aids according to your situation. Not to scare you: improper hearing aids will further reduce your hearing
