Understandable. Getting hearing aids after many years of not hearing will be a big change. It’s a pretty exciting and strange day when you first get them.
Here is an article I like to recommend, about getting used to new hearing aids and what to expect. Much of it would apply to you.
Some sounds are going to be uncomfortable for a while (clanking dishes for me, some have mentioned crumpling paper and flowing water). It’s normal and doesn’t mean you are over-amplified. You will get used to it over time.
If it was me I would ask the audiologist, since you are profound and have not worn hearing aids before, to extend the trial to 90 days, then settle for 60 or 75 days. Otherwise you have to get a few adjustments done and evaluate a new, strange experience in 30 days.
Whatever the trial period ends up being, if it doesn’t look like they can adjust out all the problems by the end of the trial, take them back. You will continue to get used to them over several months (and the benefits increase) but for trial purposes they should be getting better on every adjustment and you should have some confidence that they will work for you.
There are many other high-power aids out there.
When I got mine and got used to them it would seem like, when I took them out, that my hearing was worse than before. That was not really the case. Then after a while it seemed like the hearing aids were not as loud as they were at first. Again, just a perception.
What I’ve read and heard on the board here is that properly tuned hearing aids do not cause hearing loss or tinnitus.
