Another First!

Just had my first ever audiologist appointment.  Yup, just what it sounds like! I had a full blown hearing test.  It was pretty cool. Got to sit in a booth with toys (she put me in the kids room) and some very attractive headphones and listen to lots of beeps and sounds and static and stuff.  It was pretty obvious right at the start that I wasn’t hearing everything. Well, that is why I was there!  After the head phones she put a machine in my ear that bounced some stuff off my ears drums and she said, nope the right ear drum wasn’t moving but then she surprised me by saying the left one wasn’t moving to well either. I knew the hearing in my right ear was pretty degraded but I thought my left was fine!

So, the good news the hearing loss of the last seven years is not nerve damage and is probably just fluid trapped in my middle ear.  For SEVEN years??  I am so glad I switched Doctors and that this doctor listened to me and said, go to an Audiologist.  Next week I will make an appointment with an ear nose & throat doc and we’ll see what they have to say. Maybe I’ll get tubes in my ears like the little kids do? Now I know how that works too.

So, all of you mumblers need to be prepared, because someday soon I will be able to hear you again!

  5. I’m glad you’re finding out what the deal is.  onward and upward. : )

  6. Told you that doctor was terrible. 

  7. @beryl6 – the audiologist said it may be as simple as poking a hole in my eardrums and BAM! full hearing. 🙂

  8. hope you get your hearing fixed soon. i said, HOPE YOU GET YOUR HEARING FIXED SOON!

  9. If you can hear me, your hearing is working really well !!!  

  10. Does… Does this mean you’ll listen to me now? 😀

  11. I have a friend ( a grown up lol) who had tubes put in a few weeks ago, she’s also had problems for years and now she’s shocked at how good she can hear….She’s one of those “close” talkers, that always was kinda weird as I’d be backing up while she followed lol. but now I see why. Glad you found out what it is, good luck with the ENT!!

  12. I had hearing problem a few years ago and I had to watch people’s mouth in order to hear them.After all, what I needed is to have my ears cleansed because according to the doctor both were blocked with dirt.  After they were cleaned, I could hear so clearly that I found the surrounding’s so noisy.Guess all will be fine with your hearing problem once the problem’s targeted.

  13. @morningwind – This made me laugh.  I kept asking,maybe my ears are just blocked?  They assured me no. I have to watch people talk too.@strawberryfieldsgirl – I am pretty excited about suddenly being able to hear everything again!
