Signs of Hearing Loss

Detecting Hearing Loss Symptoms

Hearing loss can sneak up on you. The condition usually develops over a long period of time, making it difficult for the affected individual to notice that they have a problem. It’s important to know what the hearing loss symptoms are so that you can detect the problem and get treatment before it gets in the way of your life. Here are some things to look – and listen – for:

  • Requiring frequent repetition
  • Thinking that others mumble
  • Listening to the TV or radio very loudly
  • Responding inappropriately in conversation
  • Speaking as little as possible
  • Increased stress, embarrassment, or annoyance
  • Withdrawal from social events
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Family history of hearing loss
