I have in the last couple of years lost hearing clarity. Apparently, somewhere between my auditory nerves and my brain, there is something like a disconnect. The decibels at which I hear has not changed. This clarity loss can be age-related, and I have read that it can also possibly be related to having had cirrhosis, or to taking immunosuppressants – that all seems pretty unclear though. I have been wearing hearing aids since around 2004.
Has anyone else had this type of problem and if so how do you compensate for it? I get emails from CHC — Center for Hearing and Communications which is NYC and Florida and a book was mentioned recently that can be purchased on Amazon, “Smart Hearing: Strategies, Skills, and Resources for Living Better with Hearing Loss” by Katherine Bouton. I am thinking about purchasing it but wondered if any others have this problem too. I have Oticon Opn1 hearing aids and purchased the “Connect Clip” which helps in some situations.
Thanks for any responses.
