What Are You Not Hearing?

by | Apr 30, 2021 | Medical

When it comes to hearing loss, people are often confused because silence is easy to ignore. It is also easy to dismiss an inability to hear on a phone or in a crowded restaurant as being an isolated incident.
May is Better Hearing & Speech Month, a time to raise awareness about communication disorders and available treatment options that can improve the quality of life for those who experience problems speaking or hearing.
The truth is that hearing loss occurs at different levels, so not being able to hear in certain situations can be a sign of hearing loss.
Here are some questions than can help determine your hearing health:
1. Do you have a problem hearing on the telephone?
2. Do you have trouble hearing when there is noise in the background?
3. Do you have to strain to understand a conversation?
4. Do a lot of people seem to mumble or not speak clearly?
5. Do you often misunderstand what others are saying and respond inappropriately?
6. Do you often ask people to repeat themselves?
7. Do people complain that you turn the TV volume up too high?
8. Do you often hear a ringing, roaring or hissing sound?
9. Do some sounds seem too loud?
10. Do you have trouble understanding when women or children speak?
If you answer “yes” to three or more of these questions, you could have a hearing problem and should make an appointment to have your hearing evaluated.
When you’re ready, schedule an appointment at Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology by calling 661-250-6781 or visiting www.scvadvancedaudiology.com during Better Speech & Hearing Month!
Don’t miss out on any of the sounds of your life!
