The signs of hearing loss can happen slowly over time or can be significant and happen suddenly. There are several signs that you can look for that indicate hearing loss. You should suspect hearing loss if you experience any of these signs:

  • have trouble hearing in noisy environments
  • require frequent repetition
  • have trouble hearing in a conversation of more than two people
  • have ringing in your ears
  • turn the tv or radio up to a higher volume
  • feel embarassed, or get frustrated, because you can’t understand people
  • read lips or focus on people’s faces when they are speaking
  • have trouble hearing others on the telephone

If you have related to more than one of these signs, you may want to get your hearing checked. If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss, give the licensed professionals at Shea Hearing Aid Center a call at (901) 415-6667 for a FREE evaluation.
