You should suspect a hearing loss if you...
- feel growing nervous tension, irritability, or fatigue from the effort to hear.
- are inclined to believe that "everybody mumbles" or "people don’t speak as clearly as they used to."
- find yourself straining to understand conversations in social settings or at work.
- find yourself watching people's faces intently when you are listening.
- have diabetes, heart, thyroid, circulation problems or a family history of hearing loss.
- have reoccurring ear infections, constant ringing in the ears, or dizziness.
There are many other indicators of possible hearing loss. The list above provides examples of the most common signs.
