We wanted to answer whether people with multiple sclerosis (MS) have more or less hearing loss than people without MS and whether people with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) have more or less hearing loss than people with secondary progressive MS (SPMS). We tested the hearing of 47 people with MS, 26 with RRMS and 21 with SPMS, and 49 people without MS. Our study showed that people with MS have more hearing loss than people without MS and that people with SPMS have more hearing loss than those with RRMS.
