Signs and Symptoms of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss often happens gradually over time. However, sometimes it can come on suddenly, either instantly or over the course of a few days.

Is my hearing loss temporary?

Hearing but not understanding words may be due to sloping high-frequency hearing loss. If that is the case, know that it is a highly treatable form of hearing loss. 

Mishearing or hearing loss?

We live in an exciting and bustling world. Your favorite hobbies may involve amplified sound exposure, but loud noise levels have the potential to damage your hearing.

Are you missing everyday sounds?

Have you ever mishead a word or phrase in conversation and felt confused? Language is made of many individual speech sounds called "phonemes". Some examples of phonemes would be the /s/, /f/, /th/, and /sh/ sounds.
