How can I recognize a hearing problem?

Most of the time hearing loss begins gradually, without discomfort or pain. Family members often learn to adapt to it, without even realizing they are doing it. Here are some questions to ask yourself to determine whether hearing loss is present:
  1. Do I often ask people to repeat themselves?
  2. Do I have trouble following conversations with more than two people?
  3. Do I have difficulty hearing what is said unless I’m facing the speaker?
  4. Does it sound like other people are mumbling or slurring their words?
  5. Do I struggle to hear in restaurants, malls, crowded places, etc…?
  6. Do I have a hard time hearing women or children?
  7. Do I prefer the TV or radio volume louder than others?
  8. Do I experience ringing or buzzing in my ears?
