The diagnosis was a type of hearing loss which means she can't hear lower frequencies.

Since a woman's voice is usually high pitched than that of a man, Chen could only hear women.

Ms Chen went straight to the hospital, where she was seen by a ear, nose, and throat specialist.

The patient, identified as Chen, had slept the night before with ringing in her ears and nausea believing that a good sleep will solve the problem.

Reverse-Slope Hearing Loss is a very rare condition and according to Tennessee's Thigpen Hearing Center "for every 12,000 cases of hearing loss, only one person has RSHL".

All joking aside, if you're suffering from any kind of hearing loss, be sure to seek out a physician immediately.

Known only by her surname, "Chen" was rushed to hospital after waking up one morning and realising she couldn't hear her boyfriend talking to her. It is a rare condition that affects only 3,000 people in the United States and Canada and has been linked with conditions such as Wolfram Syndrome and Mondini dysplasia.

"But when a young male patient walked in, she couldn't hear him at all". However, she woke up with a bad condition that did not even make sense to her. It is believed that there are many people who now live with it, but because it is hard to diagnose, they may be unaware of it.

Doctors say that stress could have resulted in the condition.

To clarify, the woman can only hear voices belonging to other women.

If you haven't heard of it (and we hadn't either) it's called reverse-sloping hearing loss because of the shape of a hearing test audiogram of those who can't hear low frequencies - it looks the opposite of a ski slope, starting in the lower-left-hand corner and sloping upward steeply. Chen said that she has been working a lot lately under pressure.

The ENT specialist revealed it is important to treat such symptoms quickly, adding that she expects Chen to make a full recovery.
