Dear Hearing Problem
It is not unusual for allergies to also have an effect on the ears. It sounds like it is possibly a fluctuating hearing loss that you might be experiencing. It would be a good idea to have your hearing evaluated by an audiologist and you might also need to see an ENT.
You refer to age having an effect - this is not impossible, the average age on which the hearing system starts aging is about 45. At this point though, it doesn't sound like it has something to do with age.
Most medical aids pay for consultations, just find out what your benefits are on your medical aid and specific plan.
There are several people in Cape Town that can evaluate your hearing, i will gladly refer you to one. Please write to me at my e-mail address and include the area that you would prefer seeing someone in.
Hoping to hear from you soon
