Common signs of hearing loss


Hearing loss can develop gradually over time, and it is often difficult for people to recognize that they have a problem. However, there are a number of common signs and symptoms of hearing loss that can help individuals and their loved ones identify the issue and seek appropriate treatment.

Some common signs of hearing loss include difficulty hearing speech, especially in noisy environments; frequently asking others to repeat themselves; turning up the volume on the TV or radio; difficulty understanding phone conversations; withdrawing from social situations; experiencing ringing or buzzing in the ears; and feeling fatigued or stressed from straining to hear.

If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to schedule a hearing evaluation with a qualified audiologist. The audiologist will perform a series of tests to determine the extent and type of hearing loss, and recommend appropriate treatment options.

Early detection and treatment of hearing loss can help to prevent further damage and improve overall quality of life.

Prevent damage

Once permanent hearing damage occurs, it can’t be reversed.

What can you do?

Hearing loss is a gradual and normal part of the aging process. However, excessive noise is still the primary cause. Permanent hearing loss can occur almost instantly with unprotected exposure to certain sounds.

To protect yourself from noise:

  • If the sound level at work exceeds 85 dB, reduce the noise level or wear hearing protection.
  • Lower the volume of your television, stereo and iPod. Take special care if you use headphones or earbuds.
  • Be careful not to turn up your car stereo volume too loudly to compensate for noise from the engine or the wind.
  • Wear custom noise filters or solid earplugs if you go to rock concerts or nightclubs, and don’t stand near loud speakers.
  • Wear noise-cancelling headphones or solid earplugs if you use noisy equipment such as drills, lawnmowers, etc.

To avoid damage from foreign objects:

  • Don’t use cotton swabs to clean your ears. Doing so may push wax down onto your eardrum and can increase the production of wax and/or damage the eardrum.
  • Avoid washing with unclean water to prevent ear infections.

What are decibels?

Decibels (dB) measure the intensity of sound: from 0 dB, which is the faintest sound the human ear can detect, to the noise of a rocket during launch, which can exceed 180 dB.

Experts typically consider exposure to more than 85 dB to be dangerous, which means things like motorcycles, headphones and lawnmowers have potential to lead to permanent hearing loss.

Sooner is better

Many people delay seeking treatment for hearing loss, often because they believe that it is a normal part of aging or because they are embarrassed to admit that they have difficulty hearing. However, the longer someone waits to address their hearing loss, the more difficult it can be to treat.

Studies have shown that untreated hearing loss can have serious negative effects on a person’s physical and mental health, as well as their social and emotional well-being. It can lead to increased risk of falls, social isolation, and depression, and can even contribute to cognitive decline and dementia.

On the other hand, seeking treatment for hearing loss as soon as possible can help to mitigate these negative effects and improve a person’s overall quality of life. Hearing aids and other hearing devices can make it easier to communicate with others, stay connected with loved ones, and engage in social activities and hobbies.

In short, if you suspect that you or a loved one may be experiencing hearing loss, it is important to seek treatment sooner rather than later. The sooner you address your hearing loss, the more effective treatment can be in improving your hearing and overall health and well-being.
