I do have a problem with loud noises and certain noises bother me. They really, really, get on my nerves. I only have trouble understanding some conversations when there is a lot of back ground noise present, and sometimes I have troubled hearing conversations on TV.. I though I read somewhere where the small bone and joints in the ears can be damaged in persons with EDS. I can not remember if I read that or made it up. I ask because my Geneticist kept asking when my last hearing test was and if I had hearing problems. I should have asked her more questions about it. Is hearing loss a concern in EDSers?
