Long-term painkiller use 'linked to hearing loss in women'
Conclusion Many people use medicines like paracetamol or ibuprofen for aches and pains. There's no suggestion from this study that occasional use to manage a headache or muscle strain is harmful.

Children can accurately describe the sounds they hear and use words such as buzz, ring, hum, swish, whish, blow or beep.
