    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone. My physician has a patient that has sensitivity to sound. The patient is not deaf, just sensitive. What ICD 9 would I use?

    Try reviewing 388.42...Exceptionally acute sense of hearing caused by such conditions as Bell's palsy; this term may also refer to painful sensitivity to sounds.

    or 388.10 ....Unspecified noise effects on inner ear .
