Topic Hearing Loss is Worse- Is this PD? Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

Recently my PWP who wears hearing aids in both ears has gone through a couple of episodes where he can not hear anything, no sound at all. I can tell it really scared him and rightfully so.

My question is; Can PD be causing this or is it just his hearing. Has anyone else experienced this?

Trusting, I guess it could be PD related but it's the first I've heard of this. I'd be more inclined to think it might be something like batteries needing changing or a wire coming loose? You can't completely rule out PD however I'd have the hearing aid checked out. Take care, best of luck and hang in there

Thanks for the reply. It just seems that it's hard to tell what is PD and what is another problem. PD affects so many different things. Appreciate your input.
