Woman suddenly can't hear any male voices overnight

Imagine having a legitimate reason for not hearing your partner say, "Tonight, you're on dishes".

The woman, only publically identified as Ms. Chen, first noticed an issue with her hearing when she woke up one morning and was no longer able to understand her boyfriend's voice, the DailyMail Online reports.

Presumably, a little unnerved, she checked into Qianpu Hospital to see an ear, nose and throat specialist, where she was able to hear her doctor speak but not, bizarrely, a patient who walked into the room.

Woman Can't Hear Her Boyfriend's Voice Because Of A Rare Condition. The patient was a man.

As well as struggling to hear low-frequency voices, those with the condition can find it hard to hear voices on the phone properly, as well as low noises like the hum of the fridge or thunder. According to Thigpen Hearing Center, many people with this condition don't even realize they have it.

In North America, only about 3,000 people are diagnosed with this super-rare condition.

To clarify, the woman can only hear voices belonging to other women.

Reverse-sloping hearing loss is a form of sensorineural hearing loss. That can include the voices of women and children, which tend to be higher pitched than male voices. In this condition, the plot of the audiogram runs from the upper-left-hand corner of the graph and travels downwards like a ski-slope.

The patient, who has only been named as Chen, said she felt sick and could hear ringing in her ears the night before and thought going to sleep might help.

Luckily, with treatment, Ms. Chen is expected to make a full recovery, according to the DailyMail Online.

This kind of low frequency hearing loss is said to be caused by a number of different things such as Wolfram Syndrome 1, Meniere's disease, Mondini dysplasi and sudden hearing loss.

It has been linked to genetics and can be triggered by certain diseases (for example, Ménière's disease) and viral infections. This can be caused by general anesthetic, a perilymphatic fistula (an abnormal opening in the ear), and intracranial hypertension, caused by pressure in the central nervous system.
