There are many causes of hearing loss. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Wax build up in the ear canals
  • Ear infections
  • Inflammation
  • Fluid behind the eardrum
  • Perforation of the eardrum
  • Stiffening of middle ear bones
  • Natural ageing processes
  • Exposure to loud noises
  • Some medications
