Researchers from Taiwan have established a link between migraines and sudden hearing loss – a rare condition that causes a person to experience sudden and often unexplained hearing loss.
Viral infections, tumours and head trauma have been linked as possible causes of sudden hearing loss, but researchers from Taipei Veterans General Hospital have studied the condition and matched two groups of patients – one group that suffered from migraines and another group who did not.
The results show that people with migraines are at twice the risk of developing sudden hearing loss, and show that a possible link between migraines and hearing loss can be established.
A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“The results of this study provider greater understanding of the possible causes of sudden hearing loss and the importance of looking after your hearing and noticing any changes in your hearing capability. It is important to get hearing checked as soon as you notice any problems, allowing you to catch the problems early and head on.”
