Signs & Symptoms

The symptoms of hearing impairment vary depending on the cause.  Hearing loss can develop gradually over time, especially hearing loss related to noise exposure or age.

Symptoms of hearing loss may include:

  • Muffled hearing
  • Difficulty understanding what people are saying, especially against background noise or in a crowd
  • Listening to the television or radio at a higher volume than in the past
  • Withdrawal from conversations and avoidance of social settings
  • Ringing or buzzing in the ear
  • Ear pain, itching, or irritation
  • Vertigo

If you’re experiencing any of the above, call 423.622.6900 to schedule an evaluation with our Audiologist to see if hearing loss is the cause.
