There are many complications that one might go through during and after Covid. It can be hair falls, respiratory distress or even difficulty in hearing in some situation.
According to researchers, hearing and balance disorder, coupled with aggravating tinnitus symptoms, are often the results of Covid-19.
Covid 19 causes inflammatory effects in the neurological tissues, which can exacerbate other problems as well.
There is a multifold factor that plays a role between Covid 19 and hearing. Covid 19 causes inflammatory effects in the neurological tissues, which can exacerbate other problems as well.
The inflammation can damage the auditory and vestibular pathways in the peripheral and central nervous system. For instance, it degrades the smell and taste pathways.
Several studies suggest that even mental anxiety negatively impacts audibility and communications accessibility. People who experienced more stress reported that their tinnitus is more bothersome. A few experimental treatments, such as chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, can have auditory side effects, particularly on patients with kidney problem. When the kidneys do not work well, the drug may not be metabolized and gets eliminated from the body quickly. Old age is often accompanied by decreased renal functions, and Covid 19 can cause renal dysfunction. That increases the risk that patient who is given an experimental therapy for Covid 19 will be at risk for ototoxicity.
