What is Hearing Loss?
What are the Symptoms of Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss symptoms may be more noticeable to those closest to you than they are to you. Some common signs that may indicate you may need to schedule an appointment with our hearing experts include:
- Ringing in the ear
- Favoring one ear
- Avoiding noisy places such as restaurants or events
- Noticing that sounds around you seem muffled
- Focusing on people’s mouths when they speak to you
- Frequently asking people to repeat themselves
Children with hearing loss may exhibit symptoms such as frequent lack of focus, speech delay, or difficulty with learning. In the case of infants, hearing loss may present as a lack of startle response to loud noises, or they may not respond to a familiar voice as expected.
