Wait, What?! How to Tell If You Need Hearing Aids
- Posted on: Sep 15 2017
If your family is more frustrated than happy with you due to your inability to hear them, do them a big favor and get hearing aids. Not only will hearing aids make your family feel like it’s Christmas morning, but it will also help you delete the phrase, “Wait, what?” from your vocabulary.
Although a loss of hearing may be obvious to some people, it may not be quite as apparent to others. So, how can you tell if you need hearing aids?
You Have Mastered The Art of Lip Reading
If you notice that you have to read people’s lips when you are trying to have a conversation with them, this may be an indication that you are suffering from hearing loss. Lip reading is a natural response when someone is unable to hear correctly. So, although lip-reading may be a talent to show off at the next talent show, it’s something that’s worth looking more into.
You Can’t Hear Children and Women
Individuals who have hearing loss are notorious for having the inability to hear children and women because they have higher pitched voices. The next time you are around women or children, take a step back and try to identify if you are having a harder time hearing them than others.
You Have Ringing In Your Ears
Your phone should ring, but your ears definitely should not. If you experience frequent or incessant ringing in your ears, this is another big sign that you are suffering from hearing loss.
Hundreds of millions of people suffer from hearing loss including both children and adults.
