    I have a servere hearing problem with may be one of the complications of
    long-term thyroid problems. I developed a loss along with the thyroid
    problems I had as a child. By age 40 was 70% in one ear and 30-40% in
    other. I had to give up my teaching career because even with the best
    hearing aids, I cannot hear well enough to teach. My loss may be due to
    otosclerosis which is another associated auto-immune disease where bone
    overgrows those 3 little bones and they cannot vibrate. As you may know,
    thyroid hormones do affect the growth of bones and calcium metabolism.
    It makes life harder, but not without joy.
