"She was able to hear me when I spoke to her", Lin Xiaoqing, MD, the ear, nose, and throat specialist who treated Chen told the Daily Mail.

Patients who suffer from RSHL can hear and women clearly, but not men. She then went straight to the hospital.

Much to their surprise, she was able to hear Dr. Xiaoqing whenever she talked, but she could not hear the voice of a male patient that walked in at one point.

Web Desk: A Chinese woman recently woke up with a rare ear condition that left her unable to hear deepest sounds. The woman, who is going only by her surname Chen, reportedly went to the Qianpu Hospital to meet with a specialist who discovered the unusual predicament.

Xiaoqing eventually diagnosed Chen with reverse-slope hearing loss, meaning she can only hear high frequencies. She thought after a night's sleep she will be fine and hence went to sleep with her boyfriend.

After Meeting With Trump, Graham Says ‘Declare A National Emergency Now’
He says they are oblivious to national security threats and will not compromise. "I have the absolute right", he insisted. The person was unauthorized to discuss private sessions and spoke on condition of anonymity.

She discovered that Chen was suffering from a condition called 'reverse-slope hearing loss' or "low-frequency hearing loss". Less often, a shift in the pressure of ear fluid can trigger reverse-sloping hearing loss. Other women joked on Twitter that they would possibly like to take a break from hearing men's voices, too.

It was possible that stress may have contributed to the condition, the doctors said.

And while for many people reading this, the idea of not hearing men talk is quite appealing - think politics, husbands etc - the condition itself can be quite serious. It is hard to detect, as both patients and medical professionals are often unaware of the condition. The good news is, just like Gibson and Henson, she is expected to make a full recovery.

This kind of low frequency hearing loss is said to be caused by a number of different things such as Wolfram Syndrome 1, Meniere's disease, Mondini dysplasi and sudden hearing loss.

Doctors believe that Ms. Chen's particular condition may have been brought on by stress and a severe lack of sleep.
