Health Tip: How Loud is Too Loud?

Signs you may be damaging your hearing

(HealthDay News) -- While hearing loss can be part of the aging process, it can also be caused by exposure to loud noise.

When is a noise too loud? The American Academy of Otolaryngology says hearing loss may occur if:

  • You must shout so that others can hear you within an arm's distance.
  • Noise is so loud that it hurts your ears.
  • Your ears are ringing from the noise.
  • You have a hard time hearing for a few hours after exposure to the noise.
