Understanding Hyperacusis

What is hyperacusis?

Hyperacusis is when everyday sounds seem much louder than they should. Those who suffer from hyperacusis can find normal noises too loud with loud noises becoming painful or uncomfortable. The condition can affect one or both ears and onset can be sudden or gradual and can have a very negative impact on everyday life, relationships and education.

What causes hyperacusis?

The causes of hyperacusis are not always clear. However, they are often linked to:

  • Hearing changes due to your age.
  • Chronic or one-off exposure to loud noise.
  • Head or ear injury.
  • Medications.
  • Ear surgery.
  • Facial paralysis.

If you think you may be suffering from hyperacusis, there are some signs that you can look for.

What are the symptoms of hyperacusis?

The symptoms of hyperacusis can easily be identified and the onset of hyperacusis can be sudden or gradual. Here are some of the symptoms of hyperacusis:

  • Quiet sounds are comfortable, but everyday sounds are loud or distorted.
  • Your voice sounds too loud or distorted.
  • Low-intensity noises seem too loud.
  • Sudden loud noises can cause discomfort and pain including tinnitus, distortion, and a ‘popping’ in your ear.
