Losing your hearing is a scary thought, but there is no need to suffer from hearing loss, and there is no need to be embarrassed about it, either. Don’t put off dealing with this issue for another day!
Do you need a hearing aid?
Hearing changes can come on very gradually, but sooner or later there will come a time when you notice the change or when a friend or family member says something to you about how you don’t seem to be hearing very well. Here are some warning signs that it is time to see a doctor about your hearing:
- You can’t understand what people are saying when you can’t see their faces
- You have to strain to hear conversations, especially when you are in a group
- It always seems like people are mumbling or aren’t speaking loudly enough
- You can’t understand people on the phone
- Your family always complains that you have the radio or television too loud
- You get more and more irritable and frustrated when you have to be around people because you can’t understand what they are saying
- In a normal conversation, speech sounds loud but unclear
- You are exhausted at the end of the day from the effort of working extra hard just to hear people
- You can’t understand the dialogue in movies or live theatre
If you do have hearing loss, you may need either one or two hearing aids. The good news is that hearing aid technology nowadays is excellent, and you may be able to get hearing aids that are so small no one will even know you have them. You may be surprised at what a difference a hearing aid can make and how it will improve your life.
