Anyone out there notice a change in their hearing with the use of Viagra, Cialis, etal? B has some hearing loss as the result of unprotected use of loud equipment many years ago. But within the last few weeks I perceived that his hearing has deteriorated somewhat, and then the news report came out. Apparently, what increases blood flow in the penis also increases it in the ear, causing the problem. Of course, hearing loss can occur over time, anyway, but I found it coincidental that I made the observation prior to getting the basic news. The news report referred to "sudden hearing loss" which is a much different condition. B uses Viagra, and nothing else. I am adding a poll.
Well, I tried to add a poll but don't see it. Questions:
Have you had sudden hearing loss or gradual loss?
Have you noticed hearing loss or has it been observed by others?
Did you have hearing loss prior to using these medications?
How long have you taken these medications?
Which of these medications are you using?
