Nowadays we can basically find everything we need or want online, including hearing aids. But, like the old saying goes, “you get what you pay for”. In this case, hearing aids are tricky to get exactly right in an over-the-counter type of setting. Much like our finger prints, our ear shapes are all different making it very difficult for a mass-produced over-the-counter hearing aid to really work as hearing aids are intended.

We’ve discussed ear wax becoming a blockage for your hearing, and medications that can be poisonous to your hearing (ototoxicity). Now let’s cover Tinnitus and your hearing health. Tinnitus is an awareness of a sound in the ear or head that is not caused by actual external noise. Many people assume experiencing Tinnitus means you are experiencing hearing loss. This is not always the case. In fact, nearly 50 percent of individuals who experience Tinnitus don’t show any measurable sign of hearing loss at all.

If you were to ask anyone how they would feel about wearing hearing aids, I would guess many answers would resemble this statement: “if I wear hearing aids I’ll be thought of as old.” This stigma could be tied to the fact that 1 in 3 people over the age of 60 in America suffer from hearing loss. But if you really dig into the facts, hearing loss can affect anyone, at any time, no matter what age you are.

“What is that annoying ringing in my ear(s)?!” or “Oh! I lost the hearing in my ear(s) again!” Chances are, if you have said either of these common phrases, you probably have a hearing loss of some kind.  In fact, medical research in the past few years has shown that people who have tinnitus also have some form of hearing loss.

Hearing loss has many differing causes and severities.  Some people living with hearing loss experience a small or narrow band of sound frequencies as the result of a minor injury to the inner ear. In these cases, the injury may not result in hearing loss, aside from the Tinnitus or ringing ears experienced. However, for the majority of Tinnitus cases, hearing loss is the underlying issue.

It’s so easy for so many of us to get wrapped up in daily living that we simply put-off regular hearing healthcare visits. Actually, if we are really being honest, we procrastinate on a lot more than just hearing healthcare as we get older. The thing is, our hearing health is one of the most important, yet vastly under-rated, heath care areas we should be most concerned with maintaining as we age.
