Red flag on a wooden pole against a blue sky symbolizing hearing loss symptoms

Hearing loss can be a consequence of many things and is usually extremely frustrating. There are some circumstances where hearing loss is a consequence of a more severe underlying health problem and isn’t just the result of an injury or aging.

These are some hearing loss red flags you should look for

There are varieties of red flags that might be a sign of hearing loss and that it’s time to schedule a hearing assessment appointment. Pay attention if any of these red flags manifest.

Having difficulty hearing phone calls

Even with a volume control setting, you might find it hard to hear the individual you are talking to on the phone. You need to call us for a hearing test if you find yourself constantly cranking up the volume on your phone.

Difficulty following conversations

At times, we get lost during conversations even when our hearing is normal, but if it happens often, especially when more than two people are talking, it’s likely a sign of hearing loss.

Family & neighbors are complaining about a loud TV

It can be difficult to hear television programs, particularly if music is combined with dialog. It’s important to recognize that cranking the television up louder doesn’t always make the sound clearer. But it’s time to get your hearing assessed if your neighbors can hear your TV or if you constantly need the volume on a very loud setting.

Difficulty hearing in noisy environments

It normally means you’re struggling to distinguish speech from background sound if hearing in a public place has become challenging. Individuals who are experiencing hearing loss most frequently have this complaint.

You keep asking people what they said

Simply because you can’t hear someone mumbling several feet from you doesn’t mean you have hearing loss. However, if you say the word “what” more than any other word in your vocabulary, it might be a red flag that you aren’t getting sound signals clearly in order to process speech correctly.

Misunderstanding what people are saying

It can be an indication of high frequency hearing loss, often an awkward one, if you frequently misunderstand what people are saying. This form of hearing loss makes it hard to distinguish speech.

Contact us for a hearing test as soon as you can if you are noticing any of the above red flags. Luckily, the stigma that was once linked to hearing loss has nearly vanished, the testing is easy, and with the modern advances in hearing aid technologies, there is no reason for you to keep suffering with hearing loss.
