What causes hearing loss?

The only symptoms of tinnitus involve sounds being heard by the patient, but not by anybody else. If you notice yourself constantly asking others if they hear something without anybody picking up on the same sound, you might be suffering from tinnitus. Here are some common ways the internal, phantom sounds can manifest themselves:

  • Noise exposure
  • Aging
  • Head trauma
  • Disease or virus
  • Genetics
  • Ototoxicity
How does tinnitus differ between patients?

Our audiologists will spend time learning about your medical history as well as your current communication/hearing challenges. If the hearing testing indicates you have a hearing loss or any other problems, our doctors will discuss the potential treatment with you.

What are some common signs of
hearing loss?
Unless you suffer an injury, hearing loss is generally gradual. This makes it difficult to detect. However, there are some common signs of hearing loss that you should look out for.
You’re always asking people to repeat what they say

If you’re constantly asking “what?” in response to what people say even when they’re standing close by, it might be a sign that your hearing is fading.

You listen to things at significantly higher volumes than others

When people around you regularly comment on how loud you listen to the TV or music, you should probably get a hearing test

You struggle to focus on someone’s voice in noisy places

A common symptom among people with hearing loss is the difficulty of tracking a person’s voice in a noisy place such as a restaurant or bar

You’re struggling to hear high -frequencies

Often, high-frequencies are the first to go when someone loses their hearing. So, if you’re finding it difficult to understand higher-pitched voices, you should schedule a hearing test

You think others mumble when speaking

If you’re constantly wondering why everyone around you mumbles when they speak, your hearing might be the common denominator

People tell you about your lack of hearing

If you consistently hear friends, family members, coworkers, and others around you saying that you can’t hear well, they might be right

You can’t hear well on the phone

When you’re ALWAYS struggling to hear the person on the other end despite there being no connection issues, your hearing might be to blame

There’s ringing in your ears

A constant ringing in your ears might be a symptom of hearing loss. It could also point to potential damage to your auditory system. Either way, you should get it checked out

Everyone else hears something you can’t

If you often find yourself in situations where everyone in the group can pinpoint a sound and you’re the only one who can’t, you might want to get a hearing test

Think You’re Suffering From Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss isn’t easy to detect. It happens gradually with natural aging which is why there are so many people who have hearing loss without realizing it. Whether you or someone you know thinks you might be suffering from hearing loss, it’s imperative to get diagnosed and treated by an experienced audiologist.
