I lost 3/4 of my hearing suddenly 6 weeks ago. Have seen ENT and tried orednisone. Wearing Resound BTE w open domes for the last 6 years for mild to mild moderate loss. The sensitivity to loud sound is painful on the effected side. I have tinnitus, but the tinnitus setting doesn’t help.
When I turn up the volume to try to compensate on the good ear and am not sure if that is making more problem on the bad one, I have been trying to have my husband wear my mini microphone so I can hear him
- does the sensitivity ever ease up?
- I have read that the Bi Cons while in theory are good, lots of people don’t bother my brother in law hates his. Any favorite brands?
3j. We use Costco for our HAs. Would they have the technology I need?
BTW my husband is HOH and wears aids but doesn’t get it. He is getting frustrated having to be loud all day long and repeating himself louder because I am in another direction so he just is now constantly raising his voice This loss is worse emotionally than getting treated for cancer. At least we had a plan and hope to get things fixed. Am now taking anti anxiety/ depression medicine that is a help.
Am a teacher and it is exhausting and depressing saying pardon me all day long. I’m sure a lot of people here can relate.
Thanks I advance
