How Can I Tell If I Have Hearing Loss?

Ask yourself the following questions. If you answer “yes” to three or more of these questions, you could have a hearing loss and might need to have your hearing checked.

  • Do you sometimes feel embarrassed when you meet new people because you struggle to hear?
  • Do you feel frustrated when talking to people because you have difficulty hearing them?
  • Do you have difficulty hearing or understanding co-workers, clients, or customers?
  • Do you feel restricted or limited when you have a problem hearing?
  • Do you often think, “I can hear but I don’t understand what is being said?”
  • Do you have trouble understanding the dialogue on internet videos, movies, or in the theater?
  • Does a communication issue due to poor hearing cause you to argue with family members?
  • Do you ask people to repeat what they say?
  • Do you think others mumble?
