Before she went to bed one evening, she experienced nausea and a ringing in her ears.
What do you think about this odd form of hearing loss?
In a freakish situation, a Chinese woman has been diagnosed with a type of hearing loss in which she is unable to hear the voices of men and can only higher frequency tones of other females.
This isn't a selective hearing joke - Chen, from Xiamen in China, woke up one day and she was unable to hear her boyfriend when he spoke - or any men, as it turned out.
While Ms. Chen was able to hear every word a female ENT said during her appointment, she was unable to pick up on the voice of a young male patient at the hospital, Dr. Xiaoqing said.
The doctors believe the condition - called reverse-slope hearing loss, or low-frequency hearing loss - was brought on by stress, as Ms Chen had been working late under stressful conditions and wasn't getting enough sleep before her hearing suddenly deteriorated.
Anyone who suffers from low frequency hearing loss, generally, can't hear noises that have a frequency of 2,000 Hz or below.
Norovirus hits Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas
Every year, about a dozen mass norovirus outbreaks are cataloged by the CDC. "People are still getting sick", he told ABC News. Cruise ships visiting US Ports must declare to the CDC any outbreak of gastro affecting over 3 per cent of their passengers.
Luckily, Dr. Xiaoqing said Ms. Chen is expected to make a full recovery with some rest.
The rare condition is present in almost 13,000 hearing loss patients, and stress can be a factor.
Low frequency hearing loss can be very unsafe for people as it can affect their ability to hear things like the low hum of an oncoming auto. Less often, a shift in the pressure of ear fluid can trigger reverse-sloping hearing loss.
According to the World Health Organization, around 466 million people across the world are affected by some kind of hearing loss.
While the scenario sounds like a bizarro version of What Women Want, Chen is actually unable to hear deeper tones due to a rare condition called "reverse-slope hearing loss". Sudden hearing loss, Ménière's disease and viral infection are also identified as causes of RSHL.
