I have been told by my audiologist that I have the most sensitive ear canals she has ever seen. Not realizing my difficulty, the first HAs I tried were the invisible Soundlens by Starkey. I have so much jaw movement that they actual flipped inside my canal. And I could not STAND the feel (made me nauseous even).
So on to the next one, which currently are the Starkey receiver in the canal version. Tried for one week with the domes on, and I could not get used to the feel at all. Took the domes completely off which helped at first (about 2 days), and then I started noticing them again. Unfortunately for me (like how I bowl!), it gets worse instead of better over time. I like how they sound but HATE how they feel.
I keep being told I just need to keep trying b/c I will get used to them, but at this point I feel like my quality of life wearing them is suffering more than without them. And I really do not think I will get used to them unless I can do something to numb my ear canal surface. Do I just need to hold out for different technology? And most importantly (misery loves company, I guess), am I the only one out there with this problem?
