Early Treatments

Hearing loss isn’t something that happens overnight. It is a gradual process that can be difficult to detect until it’s too late. Many people equate their decreasing hearing with ageing and, as a result, believe they should just accept it. This, however, is not the case.

Your brain can nearly forget what it’s like to hear after a while. As a result, if you or a member of your family realizes that your hearing is deteriorating, you must act quickly. Most people put off dealing with their hearing loss for up to seven years, causing a lot of worry and suffering for themselves and their friends and family. It’s good to get checked out and get treatment on time.

What are the Symptoms of Hearing Loss in the Early Stages

Early hearing loss can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including:

 

  • Hearing background noise but not the person sitting next to you
  • Having the TV turned up loud but still being unable to understand what is being said
  • People around you appear to mumble and mispronounce words
  • When your partner yells from the next room or talks with their back to you, you are unable to understand them
  • Missing important parts of the conversation and having no choice except to nod along and try to fill in the blanks
  • Being told you’re not paying attention
  • In your mind, you’re hearing ringing or buzzing noises
