I've been having hearing issues for a while now (at least 6 months or more) - and the last couple of weeks the tinnitus was getting worse - I got myself some otex (I thought it was due to earwax) - which did absolutely nothing. Visited the doctors - no wax in my ears at all - and have been referred to ENT. In the mean time I wanted to see what I was up against - and got a very thorough check at Specsavers - to find out I have normal hearing for my age in my left ear - and really bad hearing in my right ear - to the point where the audiologist said she would have told me to see GP for referral to ENT! I find it really difficult when in social settings to actually understand conversations - as it turns out my left ear is having to compensate for my right - as well as having trouble pinpointing sound in general. Just wondering if anyone can give me any tips - I do have an appointment for ENT - but not for 6 weeks - and I have 2 quite important social occasions coming up before then - and don't want to appear rude when I can't hold a conversation in a noisy room!??
