One morning in 2012 I woke up with very little sound in one ear. I have been through hearing tests, MRI and CT scans. I was informed that it was due to a blockage on my inner ear and nothing can be done about it. I went through the process of getting an NHS hearing aid, but it made it worse. I, therefore, lived with it until this year. On having a hearing test they confirm I had 80% hearing loss in left ear and some high pitched frequencies loss on right. I am now in the process of trialing the Unitron Maxi Plus. The right ear is perfect, but the left ear I am having to keep going back for adjustments to be made without success. Sounds in the left ear are very distorted especially music, it is difficult to make out speech if someone is talking on my left side and in the car I’m getting a white noise. It sounds like I have a very cheap speaker in my ear. Even when turning it on the beeps are distorted and not clear. I’m wondering if the hearing aid is either not up to the job or my hearing problems can’t be fixed by an aid. Any help would be useful I’ve got 2 weeks left before the end of the trial.
I’ve now attached a copy of my audiogram as suggested.
