IU Gives An Update On Her Hearing Condition
IU spoke honestly about her hearing condition.
Previously, IU revealed that she was struggling with her hearing. The singer made the revelation that she was struggling with a condition called Patulous Eustachian Tube Dysfunction during her The Golden Hour concert last year. According to Hopkins Medicine, the disorder causes one to hear themselves too loudly, creating discomfort.
There is a slight problem with my ear, so I was very nervous while preparing for this concert.
The singer spoke further about her condition in a documentary she filmed while preparing for the aforementioned concert.
My ears are a little bad these days. My ears open on their own, so my hearing is similar to how you hear when yawning. When I hear myself sing, it becomes too loud and rings.
When asked about how her hearing was now, IU replied with some good news.
It has gotten a lot better. To be honest, it had gotten better then (last year), but then an unexpected heat wave came. Since it was September, I had a cardigan on, and due to an unexpected heat wave, I ended up sweating a lot, which I heard was bad for my ears.
IU then revealed what precautions she takes to make sure her condition continues to improve.
This is a little off-topic, but I heard that allergy sprays are bad (for my ears). Because I have allergies, I use the spray often, but I am trying to use it less after hearing it was bad for my ears.
Hopefully, IU will make a full recovery soon.
