Deafness is very common, and without treatment, it is disabling, but in order not to isolate yourself, there is nothing better than consulting a specialist, and if necessary, wearing a hearing aid. However, before going through a doctor and wearing hearing aids, you must recognize the signs of hearing loss.
The different signs that alert
Since we have a good ability to adapt, we do not pay attention to hearing impairment. But over time, the damage can be irreparable. There are many signs to alert. Remember to consult if you cannot understand the words in a conversation, if the words reach your ears in a muffled way, if you hear, but you do not understand or if you have the impression that the others do not not articulate well. This is also the case if you start to speak loudly, if you do not understand well when someone is talking to you in front, from a distance or with your back turned, and if you cannot understand conversations on the phone. A hearing problem is also noted if you follow group conversations poorly, if you are tired in noisy places, if you cannot hear the ticking of your watch, if you increase the volume of the radio or on TV or if there is background noise, you cannot understand the dialogues of a film.
Hearing problem treatment
Pay close attention to these signs to consult in time and to find out whether or not you need a hearing aid. Know that the surest way to find out if you have hearing problems is to have a hearing test done by a professional. It is with the latter that you will know the nature of your troubles. Keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more you isolate yourself, and the more it will be difficult to go back. Without adequate treatment, your brain will lose the habit of receiving sounds and interpreting them, so hearing rehabilitation with hearing aids will be more complicated. The ENT doctor will give you a complete hearing assessment to find out the level and characteristics of deafness, then an audioprosthetist will suggest a hearing aid adapted to your case. You will be able to choose the hearing aid with the level of technology that meets your needs
