Hearing loss is not necessarily obvious or dramatic. In its early stages, you may notice a difference in how you hear background noise – it may sound distorted, or seem to drown out sounds that are happening close by. You may hear others’ speech as mumbling, or have trouble hearing them when there is a lot of background noise.
Tinnitus is a form of hearing loss that causes the person to hear ringing or buzzing noises inside their ears. This condition can come & go, & often will improve over time.
