    Cochlear implants, do they help?

    While I can still hear sound, my understanding of speech seems to be totally gone. My Audiologist gave me the loudest hearing Aid possible, and it doesn't help. I can still hear the sound and turn up the instrument till they are loud, but can't make out what anyone is saying to me? So she...

    Does stress make hearing loss worse?

    Wrist shake alarm?

    Hi, does anyone know if the wrist alarm comes in sizes. I have a small wrist, so would like to know before I order? I've decided to go with the wrist alarm because I may not stay put for the pillow one, besides I like to sleep on two pillows, so a wrist one may be better for me? Thank you.

    Tinnitus is driving me insane.

    I'm mostly all deaf and you would think I would be grateful to hear, but not the tinnitus sound going on in my head, it's like a factory running in full blast, and it's getting louder. Please someone help. I put on other sound to distract this sound, but I can't hear music so that is no help...

    Almost totally deaf 67 yr old Nana.
