ENT Specialist 's  Response
your hearing has diminished; yes it is an embarassment, but it is not alarming !
There are a myriad of causes of hearing loss. But the good news is..... most causes are self limiting or easily cured.
I suggest you to consult an ENT specialist. He will also get an audiogram done and find the cause.
Then he will treat it.
Don't you worry.
Take care.
