Once you have been fitted with your new hearing aids it is important that you take the time to adjust to the different listening situations you will encounter in the initial stages of wearing your hearing aids.
Every individual adjusts differently to hearing aids and it is very important for you to remember that some people move at a slower pace adjusting to their hearing aids and some people move at a faster pace. Just move at a pace with which you feel comfortable.
If you have never had hearing aids before then your hearing needs to be retrained to recognise speech sounds at an amplified ‘normal’ level again which can take time.
Your brain will need to adapt to the many sounds it will now be hearing, and to sort out noise from useful information. This can take time and occasionally cause headaches if you “over do it”.
The key to getting the most out of your hearing aids is to practice and apply patience. Infrequent use can lead to dissatisfaction and frustration. So stay positive!
