      I have had hypercusis for about 5 months and I have a couple of questions. Is is normal to feel like you have unbalanced hearing when you have H in only one ear? Everything is louder and more clear in the H ear. My ENT said my audiogram was fine but I feel my speech recognition is off right now. Can H affect speech recognition? Would a hearing aid make it better or worse? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

      Probably sound, though never proven
      You are right. people often say that their hearing becomes more acute in the affected ear.
