Do you hear that ringing in your ears and wonder where it comes from? You're not alone. It is estimated by the Hearing Health Foundation that 20 percent of Americans hear that same ringing sound, or ones similar to it, each day.
Is hearing loss more than a minor problem? Left undiagnosed, hearing loss has an extreme effect on life including damaging physical health, job performance and, yes, even social life. Some individual can take their hearing for granted, that's until they start noticing little changes like conversations that seem unclear or TV sound that no longer works. It might take a minute for them to connect the dots between the things they no longer hear and their potentially failing ear health.
