SSCDS: Hearing everything

Superior semi-circular canal dehiscence syndrome is a rare disease that causes sound to be harshly intense due to the absence of a bony layer in the ear canal. Many patients who suffer from SSCDS are required to wear ear protection at all times. It has been said that after receiving surgery to repair the issues caused by SSCDS, one of the most rewarding things for the patients is being able to throw their ear plugs away.
