Health Tip: Is the Noise Too Loud?

2013-Sep-25

(HealthDay News) -- Prolonged exposure to very loud noise can lead to hearing loss. But how do you know when the noise is too loud?

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 much louder.
  • 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.
