(HealthDay News) -- Prolonged exposure to very loud noise can
lead to hearing loss. But how do you know when the noise is too
The U.S. National Institutes of Health mentions these warning
signs of excessive noise:
- To be heard by someone standing next to you, you must speak
- The noise is so loud that your ears hurt.
- You hear ringing or buzzing.
- It takes several hours of being away from the noise for your
hearing to return to normal.
