Do you know the signs of hearing loss?

Test yourself with a few questions to find out if you might have a hearing loss. 

If your answer is ‘YES’ to any of the questions it’s a good idea to get your hearing checked with a hearing specialist.

Don't leave your hearing loss untreated

A hearing loss also has an effect on those around you and can affect you more than you are aware of.

From early on in life our brain learns, collects and stores sound pictures to help us get an immediate picture of a situation.

You probably haven't even noticed that you have ceased hearing i.e. the sound of birds chirping, the wind blowing, the leaves rustling and many other sounds.

Do I have tinnitus?

Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom arising from a range of underlying causes. Tinnitus is one of the most common conditions that people experience – approximately 1 in 10 adults will have persistent tinnitus. Tinnitus is often described as ringing in the ears, buzzing or humming noises but it can be experienced differently from person to person. What you’re hearing is sounds generated by your nervous system, or by your brain.

Tinnitus has also been associated with ear infections, earwax and sensory nerve disorders. Tinnitus can be triggered by a number of different things, but it is most often caused by loud noise that damages the delicate cells of the inner ear. Alternately, stress, high blood pressure and even excessive earwax can set off tinnitus.
