Signs and Symptoms of Hearing Loss

If you’re not sure you’re experiencing hearing loss, know that you are not alone. Nearly 35 million Americans suffer from hearing loss but since it happens gradually, most people don’t recognize the signs for quite some time and need to have it pointed out to them by a friend or family member.

Some clues: Have people told you that your TV or radio is too loud. Are you finding it more difficult to understand conversations, especially if several people are talking at once or if there is background noise. Are you finding that you often have to ask people to repeat themselves more than once. Or, maybe you have trouble hearing over the motor and wind sounds while driving in your car.

If these scenarios seem familiar, you should take our hearing questionnaire. This test should not replace the certainty and reliability of getting a professional screening, but provide insight in potential hearing problems. The sooner a hearing problem is addressed, the more effectively it can be treated.
