hearing pain

My four year is complaining of ear pain with loud noises. When I run his bath water he covers his ears and says that the noise hurts. When legos were dumped out on the floor he covered ears complaining of pain. Today, we were outside when an ambulance went by and he cried that the sirens were hurting his ears. Could there be something wrong?

You son could be ultra sensitive to noises, but I would have a hearing screening done and talk to his pediatrician about this.

Here is a link I found interesting.....

I am not sure if this is what your son has, but thought it an interesting read all the same.

Take care,
