Hearing, taste and smell signs

The hearing signs may lead to learning delays in the class or lecture, and to misunderstandings at work as patients cannot follow instructions in real time.

They include:

Perceptual deafness characterised by inability to perceive sounds despite normal results to audiometry testing;

Delay in auditory perception, due to a lag time needed to process the audio information;

Tinnitus;

Hyperacusis.  

Alterations of taste and smell, including partial or total loss, or conversely exacerbation of taste and smell.
