Posted on Mon, 11 Jul 2016 in Brain and Spine
Question: what would cause someone not to hear anything while they sleep? this has been an ongoing problem for me since I was a child. I am now 30, and still dealing with this. I have tried everything as far as even a sonic boom alarm that deaf people use and still nothing. it is a very big concern for me. any suggestions would be appreciated so much.

Brief Answer:
Nothing serious if hearing is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Is there any deafness, ear discharge, facial deviation, headache or seizure associated with this problem?
Deep sleep usually cuts off the environmental inputs to brain.
If you have no other problem, then nothing of much concern.
You can use alarms with light or smell.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
