I just got my first pair of hearing aids, Starkey Zon 3. I had gone to my Dr. right before ordering the aids because I felt pressure in my left ear and wanted to make sure I didn’t have fluid or an infection. I was told I had neither.
On the second day that I had the hearing aids, all of a sudden the sound quality was different. Everyone’s voices including my own sounded very tinny, vibrating and mechanical. I went back to the office and they adjusted them again. At 6 pm the following day the same thing happened. Both times this occurred I had been on the telephone shortly before. This tinniness and vibrating sound with my voice and the voices of others seems to come and go. I have another appointment later this week but I would like to know if any of this sounds normal.
I still feel pressure in my ears, now along with itching which I thought might be from getting used to having the aids in. (the itching)
I have made an appointment to go to the ENT Dr. about the feeling of pressure. Yesterday I did not have the aids on and my hearing felt a little tinny. I feel as though I am losing it. This is causing me anxiety because spending this kind of money is a major investment for me.
If anyone has any advice I would so appreciate it.
