10 Tell-tale Signs of Hearing Loss
If you think you or someone you know might have a hearing loss, you are not alone. If you have suspected for a while but just haven’t got around to doing anything about it, is not unusual. On average, it takes people seven years from the time they think they might have a hearing loss to the time they seek treatment.
How can I tell if I have a hearing loss?
If you answer yes to some of the following questions, you may have a hearing loss.
- Do you often ask people to repeat what they say?
- Think others mumble?
- Fail to hear someone talking from behind you?
- Have difficulty on the phone?
- Have trouble hearing your alarm clock?
- Have difficulty following conversations involving more than 2 people.
- Have difficulty hearing in noisy situations, like conferences, restaurants, malls, or crowded meeting rooms.
- Have trouble hearing children and women.
- Have your TV or radio turned up to a high volume.
- Answer or respond inappropriately in conversations.
For most adults, the onset and progression of a hearing loss extends over some time.
Often, people will blame their hearing problems on the nature of the other person’s speech. For example, someone might say: “If people wouldn’t mumble, I could hear! “Or, “People talked a lot clearer when I was younger.”
One’s family and friends are likely to be the first to notice some difficulty hearing, long before the person does.
