It is driving me crazy now. I got new hearing aids, ReSound by the NHS (thank goodness for NHS, honestly)
All I hear constantly is background noise, like static noise that comes from the TV when you lose signal on a channel? That's what I hear all the time. I switch it on to a different setting but it makes no difference. I'm trying so hard to put up with it but I just give up and take them out.
I cannot keep doing this to myself. My hearing is almost to profound levels and I really, really need to sort it out. The problem is I haven't worn hearing aids full time for 20 years. I was diagnosed with hearing loss when I was 10, and I never wore hearing aids because I was embarrassed ( was bullied at school )
My speech is affected, and my brain cannot keep up. What is this static noise? I can't cope!!

You need to go back to the audiologist and let them know what you're hearing. They can make changes to try to fix it.

Make sure your t-coil is off. I get that a lot when I accidentally turn it on. But if that doesn't help go back. It shouldn't be doing that.

I think I need to go back as I've turned t coil off. I done everything I can and I can't cope with it any more. I will ring them Monday. I feel guilty because I haven't been wearing them much due to this because I live far from the audiology clinic. I know they'll be able to check and will see I'm not wearing them often enough but I will make time to go there now. Just an example this is what I get when I have my hearing aids in, constantly :

Don't worry about them thinking you are not wearing them enough. If they aren't setup right then that would be a good reason not to.
