Three days ago I had a common cold (one and a half day of very strong incessant sneezing and runny nose) during which I did not wear my hearing aids. Now I am cured but my hearing became substantially weaker (with and without the hearing aids), and what is especially bad - primarily for the speech hearing and understanding.
I have found in the forums’ messages occasional notes about the hearing weakening due to common colds but no discussions on this subject.
It is a crucial question now (for me and certainly for many more) to know - What are the chances (if any) of a hearing recovery after a common cold?
Many thanks for all and any information on this question as well as about the “mechanism” of the common cold action on the hearing.
