Determining whether or not you have hearing loss requires a hearing test conducted by a professional, but if you suspect you may have hearing loss here are some indications.
Five signs that you have hearing loss
Solutions to Your Hearing Loss
High-frequency hearing loss is generally a type of sensorineural hearing loss, indicating that hair cells located in the inner ear have been damaged. These hair cells translate sound into signals and transfer them to along the auditory nerve and into the brain in order to be interpreted. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by a multitude of things, including disease, genetics, infection, or noise exposure. There’s no cure for sensorineural hearing loss, but it can be treated with hearing aids or cochlear implants. It is important to get diagnosed early and seek treatment. Early diagnosis allows for early intervention, which will help preserve the hearing abilities that you still have. Additionally, hearing loss that goes untreated has been associated with mental health conditions like anger, anxiety, decrease in cognitive abilities, depression, frustration, isolation, and loneliness.

The majority of modern hearing aids are discreet, stylish and advanced. They can strengthen the sounds in high frequencies that you may be missing, without amplifying the lower frequencies that you are able to hear.
Even if you are not experiencing any signs of hearing loss, it’s best to get a yearly hearing test. Treat your hearing health like your vision or overall health care. Do not wait for these issues to arise.
