Dr. Michael Degg said Hearing difficulties -Despite wearing a hearing aid- there are several reasons; Including: technical and health problems.
The German ear, nose and throat doctor explained that the technical problems lie in not wearing the headset correctly, or a weak headphone battery, or an empty charge, or blockage of the “microphone” entrances due to earwax and dirt such as: sweat, dust, pollen, and bacteria.
Dej added that hearing difficulties, despite wearing a hearing aid, may also be due to health problems, some of which are minor and some of which are serious. He explained that the minor problems are represented by the blockage of the auditory canal due to earwax, while the problems lie. Dangerous include ossification of the joints of the auditory ossicles, middle ear infection, or the presence of a tumor.
First, the patient should go to an audiologist to have the hearing aid checked for functionality.
If hearing problems persist, the patient should then consult an otolaryngologist; To determine the real cause behind these problems, and undergo timely treatment; Because hearing difficulties negatively affect the ability to communicate with others, which in turn raises the risk of dementia.
