Signs of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss often develops gradually, sometimes over many years. Because of this, people with hearing loss don’t often notice a problem, even though friends and family may be aware of it. Listed below are some common signs of hearing loss that you or a loved one may have noticed.
You might have a hearing loss if you…
- frequently ask people to repeat themselves
- say “pardon me?” or “what?” a lot
- have difficulty hearing in noisy places such as restaurants or parties
- think that other people are mumbling
- have been told that the tv or radio is too loud
- have more trouble hearing women and children’s voices
- have ringing in your ears
- favour one ear over the other
- family or friends have commented that you have hearing difficulty
If any of these sound familiar to you, you may want to consider having your hearing tested by an audiologist, a university-trained professional who specializes in hearing and hearing loss difficulties.
