Answers to your most asked hearing questions.
No, hearing aids do not cause vertigo, dizziness, or other balance problems. Often times, vertigo and hearing loss can occur together. This is because of the proximity of the hearing nerve to your sense of balance, which is also located within the cochlea. If you are experiencing dizziness and hearing loss you should come in for a hearing screening immediately.
A hearing test will determine if you have hearing loss, and what degree of loss you have. To pass a hearing test would require a “normal” hearing ability, indicating you can hear noises between 0 and 25 decibels across the frequency range. After we’ve evaluated your hearing, we will show you your audiogram and what range of decibels you can hear.
