Symptoms of Hearing Loss

I hope this covers it, I’m not sure what else needs to be done :S. Also, won’t be there tomorrow as I have the surgery visit- Rob

“Signs of the early stages of hearing loss include:

  • Difficulty hearing conversations, especially in the presence of background noise
  • Frequently asking others to repeat what they’ve said
  • Misunderstanding what people say
  • Difficulty hearing on the telephone
  • Requiring the TV or radio volume to be louder than others in the room prefer
  • Feeling that people are mumbling when they are talking
  • Difficulty hearing certain environmental sounds, such as birds chirping
  • Agreeing or nodding your head during conversations when you’re not sure what’s been said
  • Removing yourself from conversations because it’s too difficult to hear
  • Reading lips so you can try to follow what people are saying
  • Straining to hear or keep up with conversations
  • Tinnitus”
