Physical consequences

Untreated hearing loss often results in certain physical problems.

In general, hearing-impaired people who suffer from untreated hearing loss express less physical well-being than people with normal hearing and hard-of-hearing people who use hearing aids.

Some of the consequences include:

  • Tiredness or exhaustion
  • Headache
  • Vertigo
  • Tense muscles
  • Stress
  • Problems with sports
  • Eating and/or sleeping problems
  • Stomach problems
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Sexual problems
