Do you know that March 3rd is World Hearing Day? 48 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss.
Hearing loss doesn’t usually happen overnight, and most people find it difficult to notice any gradual changes in their own hearing. Often, the first people to notice a deterioration in your hearing sensitivity will likely be your partner or close friends, so pay attention if they notice any changes.
Common symptoms may include:
Difficulty hearing other people clearly.
Having to turn up the volume on your TV and other devices.
Asking people to repeat themselves.
Finding it particularly difficult to understand conversation in noisy places.
Staying empowered, connected and communicating is now more important than ever. Please contact your medical provider if you experience any of the common symptoms listed above.
