Listening to your iPod at maximum volume or regularly attending rock concerts will damage your hearing. And even if you don’t seek out loud noises, everyday noises can put you at risk. The scary thing is that we often don’t feel that our hearing has been overtaxed before the damage is done.
The following signs might indicate that you’ve suffered hearing damage: ringing or buzzing noises in your ears; pain in your ears; feeling as if you have cotton wool in your ears; and difficulty hearing after music stops. If any of these sound familiar, consult a doctor or audiologist who can diagnose your hearing problem and advise you on the best way to manage it.
