Primary Symptoms Of Hearing Loss
If you’ve begun to notice what you think are symptoms of hearing loss then it’s time to get your hearing checked immediately. But what exactly are some of the typical signs of hearing loss? And are they the same symptoms you’ve been experiencing?
Here’s a partial list of some of the most common symptoms related to hearing loss:
- You find yourself trying to read other’s lips when they speak so you can understand their words
- Friends and neighbors often complain that your TV or radio volume is very high
- Sometime you miss phone calls, knocks on the door or kitchen buzzers because you simply don’t hear them
- Buzzing or ringing in your ears has become more common, especially after being in noisy environments
- Understanding what people say in noisy environments like a busy shopping mall is difficult if not impossible
- It seems like many people you talk to are “mumbling”
- You find yourself asking others to repeat themselves during conversations
How To Tell If You Have Hearing Damage
The only way to know for sure that you have hearing damage is to take an Audiologist supervised hearing loss exam. Lifetime Hearing performs these tests for free every day for Grand Prairie and other DFW residents suffering the symptoms of hearing loss. While a hearing loss exam may sound intimidating or complicated the test is actually rather simple and easy.
During your hearing loss test you’ll be asked to listen to a series of sounds and tell the Audiologist running your exam what sounds you do (and don’t) hear. No medications or uncomfortable procedures are required to assess whether the symptoms of hearing loss you’re experiencing mean you have actual hearing damage.
When the exam is complete your Audiologist will explain the results to you in plain English and help you understand what your hearing aid choices are.
Why Is A Qualified Audiologist Important?
An Audiologist is someone with the specialized training and required state licensing that ensures they are a qualified expert in evaluating the hearing of people like you. All of the Grand Prairie staff who administer hearing exams at Lifetime Hearing’s DFW locations are state licensed Audiologists.
Simply relying on perceived symptoms of hearing loss or a free online hearing test is not enough. You need to spend the time with a qualified audiologist in Grand Prairie to get a professional opinion of your hearing so you can make the right decisions on what to do next.
