Popular Pain Meds Linked to Hearing Loss in Women - Pain Management

 
 women who took ibuprofen or acetaminophen two or more days per week had a higher risk of hearing loss compared to women who used them less than once per week, and risk increased with frequency

During my periodic relapses when I was taking ibuprofen every day, I noticed increased ringing in my ears, sometimes loud enough to keep me awake at night or to impair my ability to hear what was said to me.  I also noticed that when I stopped taking Advil at the end of a relapse, my hearing returned to normal.
