Have you ever heard a ringing, roaring or hissing in your ears? Then you have experienced tinnitus, and you may need tinnitus hearing aids in Fort Pierce.
Tinnitus is not an illness in itself, but an indicator of another problem. While many times the causes of tinnitus are not known, some conditions that are identified to produce tinnitus are
• Hearing loss
• Loud noise exposure
• Medicines toxic to hearing
• Wax buildups
When tinnitus is chronic, there is a good chance that it’s being caused by hearing loss. Hearing loss and other hearing problems are subtle and hard to notice, so if you have tinnitus constantly the best course of action is to get tested for hearing loss.
Having hearing aids fitted can help you not only address said hearing loss, but also reduce tinnitus. Once you’re able to hear better what’s going on around you, you will notice less and less the ringing in your ears.
If you have tinnitus, the first thing you should do is get tested with an audiologist. Once your hearing evaluation is completed, your audiologist will review the results of the exam with you. If you have hearing loss, hearing devices may be recommended.
Your audiologist will review different hearing aid styles and technologies with you, and may recommend a listening experience with hearing devices. In addition to hearing devices, you may be educated on other assistive devices.
