“If I knew hearing aids could help my tinnitus, I would have done this so much sooner…”
Last week I had a younger woman who shared this quote after her initial hearing aid fitting. She noted that for a few years her primary care doctor had pushed aside her tinnitus (noises in the ears) as something that everyone learns to “live with”. But for her, the tinnitus disrupted her everyday life! Work became harder and her attention and focus suffered because of the drowning sound of her tinnitus in one ear…
Thankfully, she received a referral to come have a hearing test and learn about tinnitus. Hearing aids ended up being a wonderful solution for her, as she had underlying hearing loss likely contributing to her tinnitus! She noted her doctor probably thought she was “too young to need hearing aids”.
I tell many patients that we see hearing aid patients of ALL ages. From infancy through adulthood, hearing loss can happen at any stage of life! PLEASE do not hesitate to have your hearing checked if you are suffering in silence (or drowning in tinnitus!)
Our goal is simple: to improve our patient’s quality of life in all ages and stages through the gift of hearing. Call our office today to schedule a visit!
