There was a time that hearing loss was only primarily associated with aging, but now hearing loss is becoming more common in younger people! Ranging from mild to severe, hearing loss can totally affect the quality of a person’s life. From youngsters having it affect their language and social interaction to elders having it affect their profession, hearing loss can definitely become a very serious issue.
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association early symptoms of hearing loss include when a person asks people to repeat themselves, pain or ringing in the ears and keeping the volume of music or the TV at a level others would say is to loud.
With May being Bettering Hearing and Speech Month it is a good time to get checked as hearing loss can occur slowly and sometimes may be difficult to detect. Screening for hearing loss is simple and painless and should be done annually for children and periodically throughout adulthood.
