Signs Of Hearing Loss
You are probably the best judge of whether or not your hearing has declined. Your hearing should be checked if you experience more than a couple of the following:
- Have Trouble Hearing on the Telephone
- Turn One Ear towards a Speaker to Hear Better
- Frequently Ask Others to Repeat Themselves
- Make Inappropriate Responses because You Didn't Understand the Question
- Miss Essential Sounds, including Doorbells, Alarm Clocks, & Smoke Alarms
- Have Difficulty Understanding Speech in Noisy Places
- Frequent Exposure to Noisy Environments
- Are Tired or Stressed from Trying to Hear
- Believe That Everybody Mumbles
- Fail to Understand Doctors' Instructions about Medications
- Increase Television or Radio Volume to a Point That Others Complain
- Find It Easier to Understand Others When You Are Looking Directly at Their Faces
UNTREATED HEARING LOSS HAS MANY CONSEQUENCES!
Living with untreated hearing loss means difficulties in conversations with others, social gatherings, and perhaps lost performance at work. Often it becomes too challenging to keep up with life around you.
You may suffer side effects from hearing loss such as:
- sadness and depression
- worry and anxiety
- less social activity
- emotional turmoil and insecurity
By not seeking help for your hearing loss, you are missing out on enjoying all that life has to offer.
There is no good reason to wait
Most people typically disregard their hearing loss for five to seven years. Putting off the inevitable will just make it harder to rectify the problem. Your brain gets used to not hearing everyday sounds and the longer you live without sounds, the longer it may take for your brain to understand them again. Regular hearing aid use can help maintain your brain’s ability to interpret sounds.
