Hearing Loss Symptoms
There is much variation in the symptoms of hearing loss, which is highly dependent on the type and extent of impairment. For instance, sound intensity and clarity are significantly impacted in people with sensorineural hearing loss, while those with conductive hearing loss find that sounds become muffled. The most prevalent symptom of hearing loss overall is having difficulty understanding speech, especially in busy and crowded environments with loud background noise interference. Other symptoms include trouble discerning consonants, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), frequently asking people to talk louder or slower, unusually high volume settings on the radio or television, and avoiding conversation.
Whatever the cause, it is vital to seek assistance as soon as possible if you experience any changes in your hearing or you simply suspect that you might be suffering from hearing loss. As this elusive condition often progresses slowly, its symptoms are too subtle for people to take seriously. Getting your hearing tested by a qualified Hearing Instrument Specialist can help diagnose any issues and provide suitable treatment options. Prompt intervention is key to early detection, which significantly improves prognoses and reduces the risk of developing other medical conditions associated with untreated hearing loss.
