hi, i was born with a hearing loss that became a problem at the age of
10... i've been wearing hearing aids since the age of 14 (now 33).
althgouh this is most likely genetics as my father was born with the
hearing loss i want to be sure of the origin of this disease. none of
the ENT doctors I've seen seems to be giving any convincing answer.
they all say the same thing... there could many reasons and that
hearing aids are the only solution. i heard a lot about ear hair so i
am assuming there are techniques to find out the origins of a hearing
a loss or at least to narrow it down.
