They said my audiogram is not normal and that I need to see a doctor and get his sign off before they can give me aids.
They said most people can’t here higher frequencies and since most of my losses are on the low end, I have a medical problem that needs to be diagnosed by a doctor first.
Does that sound normal?
I have had tinnitus my whole life (I am ~30), but my hearing has gotten worse over the last 10 years or so.
I have decided I should try aids now to better understand speech.
I wanted to get an aid from eBay for a few hundred dollars, but I don’t think you can program them yourself. Since my hearing loss is not “normal”, I assume default settings won’t work.
I guess I should go to the ENT and then get aids from an audiologist.
Thanks for any advice!
