Low muscle tone and hearing loss!

Postby Radioactive_hairgel » Thu Jul 21, 2005 3:13 pm

Does anyone here have hearing problems? Not as such that you can't handle loud sounds- but the reverse, because i have recently noticed that i require for the t.v or P.C to be up at extremly loud levels for me to hear it 'comfertably'. I reserached hearing loss (because i had never had problems with hearing before!) and could it be connected with dypraxia or low muscle tone (which i have evreywhere within my body) and i found out that having low muscle tone can somtimes result in hearing loss! I am a bit worried about it and would be over-the-moon if people could reply to this question as it might help me! (we are going to get it checked out though- the volume of the t.v is driving my mum crazy :roll: )

Hypotonia is linked to dyspraxia. (You need to talk to k9ruby about this - she has it.) Hearing loss can come about as a result of hypotonia, but it isn't directly linked to dyspraxia. Quite the reverse - as you noted, most dyspraxic people have painfully sensitive hearing.

Yep, quite right vicky!!! Yes many people with dyspraxia also have low musle tone and weakness (including me!) That means i'm not that strong, quite floppy and very flexible! :D

I don't have very good muscle tone. I'm not sure if that's part of my dyspraxia, or because I don't do enough excercise.
I expect many of us are weak, due to lack of excerise, because we are so poor at sports and want to avoid the embarassment of playing them.

Perhaps it differs from person to person? Not all dyspraxic babies are 'floppy', but many are.

I have surprisingly good muscle tone for a dyspraxic person, and I am - as one of my ex-roommates put it - 'freakishly strong'. I don't exactly exercise much either. Peculiar.

Is hypermobility also known as Ehrlos-Dahnlos Syndrome, or are they two different things?
