    Acoustic Trauma : is it temporary ?
    So this morning I went to the doctor and had my ears checked. He said that I have acoustic trauma and that I should never use my headset again. He gave me an audiogram and that said that I can't hear 4000 hertz at 20 decibel (which according to the doctor is what I should be able to hear) and I was able to hear 4.000 hertz at 25 decibel instead. So this killed me a little bit inside cause when I'm at my computer I use my headset so I can chat or play with others online. I would like to know if this is permanent or its temporary, if its going to heal over time or if I need a treatment for it. Please answer me I felt really sad and stressed about it... I need serious answers if someone really knows anythign about it please share your knowledge with me cause I feel really really bad.

    Did you ask him these questions? He would know the answers.

    From my personal knowledge of relatives who were/are hard of hearing, this doesn't heal. It's permanent and can get worse. Hearing aids were my relatives' solution.
