When your sense of hearing begins to fail or you begin to have issues with your ears, it can have devastating effects on your quality of life. At Helmert Hearing Clinic, we understand the importance of your hearing health and work with each individual patient to get at the root of your hearing problem. The sooner you are able to seek advice from a hearing professional, such as Dr. Stacy Helmert, the sooner you can be diagnosed.
Here are some common hearing problems and hearing loss symptoms.
Do you suffer from dizziness? Blurred vision? Feeling lightheaded? Feelings of dizziness or being off balance can be symptoms stemming from a variety of issues. However, when it comes to experiencing these feelings on a regular basis, the first area of your body that needs to be examined is your ears. Our ears are very sensitive, and the smallest change can cause these symptoms. Through simple tests and examinations, the cause of dizziness is usually identified and treated.
LOSS OF HEARING
When it comes to living your life to the fullest, it is important to keep active and healthy. This includes your hearing health. Many people overlook a small decrease in their hearing and often rule it out as something that happens as you get older. While advancing age is one reason you may be having trouble hearing or understanding others, there could be other reasons for your loss of hearing. In order to correctly diagnose your loss of hearing, we need to perform a diagnostic evaluation which will give us more insight to the type, degree, and configuration of your hearing loss.
RINGING IN THE EAR
Ringing in the ear, or tinnitus, is more common than you think. In fact, millions of Americans suffer from tinnitus each year. When it comes to tinnitus, each person is affected differently. Some people go through life with this small annoyance and never think twice about doing anything about it. However, if you are one of those people who suffer from a constant ringing in your ears that is causing you to lose sleep or keeping you from enjoying everyday activities, then it is time to give us a call at Helmert Hearing Clinic.
