Hearing Loss Symptoms
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 40 million adults in the U.S. have reported some type of hearing trouble, making it the third most commonly reported condition. While every person experiences hearing loss differently, the following symptoms point to the fact that there is some level of impairment:
- Difficulty deciphering what people are saying, either in person or over the phone (or both)
- Turning up the TV or radio volume high to hear the broadcast
- Frequently asking others to repeat what they said
- Ringing in the ears
- Not hearing timers, microwave beeps, or other household sounds
At our center, we conduct comprehensive hearing tests to determine the type and extent of loss you're experiencing. Our doctors of audiology can then provide personalized fittings to help you find the right hearing instruments for you.
The Effects of Hearing Loss
Untreated loss of hearing is problematic on its own, but it can lead to additional issues. These include irritability, fatigue, depression, stress, withdrawal from social settings, greater risk to personal safety, and reduced wellbeing. These effects can add up and escalate if the hearing deficiency remains untreated.
Whether hearing loss is temporary or permanent, it can have a negative effect on everyday life and long-term perspectives. It doesn't have to be this way, though. Whatever type of hearing loss you may have, options exist. Contact us today at 614-457-5848 to schedule a hearing test appointment and begin your journey back to hearing empowerment.
