Ever walk out of a night spot after hearing loud music and feel like your head is in a bucket? This is a type of hearing loss. It’s called temporary threshold shift and what’s happening is you’ve exposed your nerves to the point of exhaustion and they can no longer respond properly. By the next day you generally feel fine, but what you don’t realize is that you don’t recover 100% of what you lost that night; you recover 99%. So if each time you are exposed to that type of noise you only recover 99%, hearing loss can build overtime. Best practices is to wear invisible hearing protection.
