Woman loses the ability to hear men’s voices

Patients who suffer from RSHL can hear and women clearly, but not men. After Dr. Lin Xiaoqing checked out her symptoms, she was able to identify that she could not hear deeper voices due to their lower frequencies.

According to the Daily Mail, the rare condition only affects one in 13,000 patients with hearing problems.

The woman from Xiamen, on China's east coast, knew something was wrong when she woke up and couldn't hear her boyfriend's voice, MailOnline reported citing AsiaWire.

Ms Chen went straight to the hospital, where she was seen by a ear, nose, and throat specialist. She thought after a night's sleep she will be fine and hence went to sleep with her boyfriend.

"She was able to hear me when I spoke to her, but when a young male patient walked in, she couldn't hear him at all", Dr. Xiaoqing says in a story with the Daily Mail.

All joking aside, if you're suffering from any kind of hearing loss, be sure to seek out a physician immediately.

Missing Wisconsin Girl Jayme Closs Is Reunited With Her Aunt, Sheriff Says
A 21-year-old man is suspected of killing her parents in October at their home in Barron, Wisconsin , then kidnapping the teen. Officials reported Jayme missing on October 15 when deputies discovered the bodies of her parents in their Wisconsin home.

As well as struggling to hear low-frequency voices, those with the condition can find it tough to make out voices on the phone, as well as noises like the hum of the fridge or thunder.

This condition is normally hard to diagnose because both medics and patients may be unaware it exists.

The site says an estimated 3,000 people in the USA are affected - so just one out of every 12,000 cases of hearing loss.

While the condition may be caused by genetics, stress can also play a role.

Instead, the vast majority of people who have some type of hearing loss have what is called ski-slope hearing loss.

But Dr Xiaoqing said Chen may have developed the condition duo to fatigue and stress after Chen said she'd been getting stressed and losing sleep over working too much. Chen is expected to receive her complete hearing back soon with the medic monitoring her recovery. The term describes the shape of a hearing test audiogram of those who can't hear low frequencies.
