How often do you visit your audiologist?
I have just been reading back one of my old posts. It has been just under 18months.since i last saw my audiologist.
Even with my aids i am struggling again.
If i turn away i can no longer hear noises.
I sometimes cant hear my own voice.
I can no longer clearly hear my hubby.
He has a strong deep voice. Is it too soon to be going be going for a check up?

No, it is not too soon. If your hearing has changed or you are no longer getting the same benefit from your aid that seems like the perfect time to visit to see what's going on.

I finally visited the audiologist 2 months ago, I did need my hearing aids turning up. they set them to a lower volume while I got used to my hearing aids, I was only meant o have them on that setting upto a year, but I was not told this so I did not know how quiet they were. now they are at normal volume and I am getting used to sounds all over again. Thank you for your responses. Glad I can update you.

You can't change your own volume on hearing aids??? I have never encountered that.
I believe some HAs do not have volume buttons. Most likely the small ones. Anyway, they do set the HAs max volume at a low volume for new users to get used to the sounds. Though I usually went back 2 weeks later to get them turned up and then would go back whenever I felt I needed the HAs tweaked.

yeah, my second pair doesn't have that (which is BS when I was in high school lol)
thankfully the pair I have now and in '11 has that

it has been since '18, I'll have to go back soon, get checked up and possibly some new hearing aids as well ;) *same for my mom since her first one was from 2014*

I would not like that! It is soooo much easier to just reach up to a behind the ear aid rather than dig a phone out of my purse.
It’s called modern technology.

But I get your point. I do. I had to adjust at first, too. By now I am used to it, so I don’t mind it. I think a time will come when all HAs are this way.

Things was just too quiet. They do set them Quiet for new users. I am alot happier and I have room to adjust the volume using my buttons if needed. We're as before the buttons up full was still not loud enough.
