Tinnitus and hearing loss in 15-16-year-old students: mental health symptoms, substance use, and exposure in school2008In: International Journal of Audiology, ISSN 1499-2027, Vol. Just students with a slight/mild or moderate hearing loss were included. The aim of this study is to compare school adjustment, mental health symptoms, and substance use among 15- to 16-year-old students attending mainstream schools in rebro County, in Sweden. There can be different reasons for the changes over time, such as changes in extrinsic factors like improved welfare system and medical care and differences in noise exposure. Several studies have shown that HH participants with tinnitus report more psychiatric symptoms or emotional problems than those without tinnitus (Aust, 2002; Rosanowski, Hoppe, Proschel, & Eysholdt, 1997). This applies to most drugs for high blood pressure, cholesterol lowering drugs (statins), drugs given for anxiety and most antidepressants.

Tinnitus and hearing loss in 15-16-year-old students: Mental health symptoms, substance use, and exposure in school. International Journal of Audiology 47(11):688-694. Comorbid psychiatric disorders are frequent among patients affected by tinnitus. When audiological testing is performed at finer intervals and at frequencies above 8 kHz, cases of tinnitus with absolutely no hearing loss become more rare in our hands and in those of other investigators 41.

Permanent hearing-related symptoms are associated with people’s health and wellbeing. A total of 1228 students (aged about 16 25 years) of 2 Dutch inner-city senior-secondary vocational schools were invited to complete questionnaires (Table S1) about their sociodemographics, music listening behaviors and health under supervision at school. Deafness in Adults- the hearing range is 0-20 decibels (dB). There are 36,000 people aged 16-49 who are severely or profoundly deaf, and a total of around 1. Presentation – there is a sudden, unilateral hearing loss associated with vertigo and tinnitus. Tinnitus, a ringing, buzzing, or roaring in the ears, is a symptom that accompanies many forms of hearing loss and can be debilitating. Deafness or hearing impair-ment may be caused by genetic factors, noise or trauma, sensitivity to certain drugs or medications, and viral or bacterial infections. It follows then that a mild high-frequency hearing loss in a 16-year-old high school student may well deteriorate to a debilitating degree in later life.
