What is this...."reverse cookie bite loss"?....
That's where you hear better in some pitches in the middle of the audiogram. It's suppose to be rare -- so rivenoak may not get a lot of responses.
It can make it more challenging to get a hearing aid appropriately programmed. It depends where you start hearing better and where the "programming handles" are in the hearing aid.
More information on different types of hearing loss from a hearing measurement point of view -- not a medical one:
Kinds of Hearing Losses
I believe mine is considered a reverse cookie bite. I have loss in both the low freq's and the high freq's.
I think that'd be me. I've had two audiograms before... the first showed most loss in the high frequencies, the second showed I was starting to lose more in lower frequencies, too... Ive been having more and more trouble with low pitches, so Im actually going in on Friday for another test... we'll see!
I read your post on the "Why are you deaf" thread. Was your mother's loss the same as yours?
Is there anyone else deaf in your family?
Do you feel that your HAs are programmed well to meet your losses? Has it been difficult to get them programmed correctly?
Anything you would care to talk about, with having this kind of loss? I'd be happy to read anything you have to say on the subject!
I have RCB in both ears..
Good luck with finding anybody who knows what it is,has actually seen a case and knows how to program your HA's successfully.
