Answering your questions about hearing aids and hearing health.
Tinnitus and vertigo can occur together because they are both disorders that occur inside the ear. If you have suffered head trauma or a blow to the ear, then you may experience ringing in the ears and vertigo/dizziness together.
It may be tempting to put hearing aids off until your hearing loss is worse, but there are advantages to getting hearing aids sooner rather than later. No matter when you get hearing aids, your brain will need to adapt to understanding sounds it hasn’t heard in years. This adjustment period can be much easier the sooner you get hearing aids since your brain will have spent less time without those sounds.
If your hearing aid doesn’t seem to be working correctly, try turning it off and taking the batteries out, then reinserting the batteries and turning it back on. If that doesn’t troubleshoot your hearing aid problem, then you should bring them in. We can repair hearing aids in office, so you can get back to hearing your best again.
