My husband has been aggravated for a few months because I am always asking him to repeat himself. I accuse him of mumbling. I hear a rumble which is apparently him talking, but I don't make out the words. I strain on my cell phone to make out words even though it's at a normal level. I tell my husband that the TV is too loud sometimes, yet when he turns it back down I miss stuff. If there is other noise in the room I miss conversation. The other day I was in a room with 2 conversations going on around me and the radio on and I honestly couldn't single out any particular voice. I just heard the rumbling. I Do have some light tinnitus too- ringing, flutters, roars, etc. The bass always seems to loud to me when men are talking on the radio. I have trouble hearing in the car when it has rained. I went to get my hearing checked at a Miracle Ear (free) and she only did the tone test because she said that it showed that my hearing was in normal range. My low Freq was a little off, but she said it was nothing major. If my hearing is "normal" why can't I hear normally? I'm only 28 so I know it's not just old age! My insurance kicks in first of Feb but I'm really struggling to figure this out now! I will be making an ENT appt for Feb for sure! Anyone have any idea?
