In many cases hearing loss is gradual. Some people are not even aware of the problem until it starts having a big impact on their life. Here are some common signs that can help you to determine whether you have hearing loss:

Common signs of hearing loss:

  • Needing to turn up the volume of your TV or music louder than other people.
  • Finding it difficult to understand words in group situations.
  • Having trouble hearing in crowded or noisy situations.
  • Having difficulty distinguishing words.
  • Speech and other sounds are muffled.
  • Having difficulty understanding people unless they are facing you.
  • Often needing people to repeat what they are saying, or asking them to speak louder, slower or more clearly.
  • Feeling isolated from conversations.
  • Avoiding certain social situations in which you have trouble hearing.

If you think one or more of the common signs listed above applies to you, it might be a good indication that you are suffering from hearing loss and should seek professional help. To get honest advice on the best way to manage your hearing loss, book in to see an experienced audiologist today.
