Symptoms Of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is usually noticed by people who you live with or associate with on a regular basis. If you are regularly asking your husband/wife/partner if you could have the TV up louder than you would normally have. Take notice of how often you are asking for repeats. Often you are the last person to realise that you are not hearing as you used to. Family members might say things like:

  • Sharon King Hearing Centres
    "You need to get your hearing checked"
  • Sharon King Hearing Centres
    "That's not what I said"
  • Sharon King Hearing Centres
    "I have already told you that"
  • Sharon King Hearing Centres
    "That is the third time I have told you"

The cause of hearing loss is due to any number of factors, age and exposure to loud noise are more common causes however after the age of 60 most people will experience hearing loss and the number of people suffering hearing loss increases as you get older. Many people wait more than 10 years on average after being diagnosed with hearing loss before they consider hearing aids.
