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.

Stress is known to be bad for your health, but it hit one woman so badly she actually wentdeaf - well, to men anyway.

Concerned, she went to the hospital where doctors attempted to diagnose the weird symptoms. When she woke up, she couldn't hear her boyfriend's voice. 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.

"She was able to hear me when I spoke to her, but when a young male patient walked in, she couldn't hear him at all,"' said Dr Xiaoqing.

The woman from Xiamen, on China's east coast, knew something was wrong when she woke up and couldn't hear her boyfriend's voice, MailOnline reported citing AsiaWire.

Reverse-slope hearing loss can be hard to diagnose, the Daily Mail reported, because both physicians and patients may be unaware of its existence.

According to audiologyhears.com, reverse slope hearing loss (or RSHL) derives its name from the fact that low frequencies are affected but not high ones.

Anyone who suffers from low-frequency hearing loss, generally, can't hear noises that have a frequency of 2,000 Hz or below.

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. According to doctors, stress may be the reason behind this condition of Chen.

This condition is normally hard to diagnose because both medics and patients may be unaware it exists. Indeed, autoimmune conditions in the inner ear can cause balance problems that may lead to vomiting - a symptom that Chen described to her doctor, Clark noted. "Doctors will call it hearing loss, I call it evolution", wrote one person on Twitter. This explains why hearing loss more often affects our ability to hear higher-pitched sounds than lower-pitched ones, she said.
