I am a hearing aid USER, not a dispenser or Audiologist. I am looking
for a newsgroup where USERS discuss hearing aids. Can you possibly
direct me to such a newsgroup?
I would like to ask this group about a concern I have and which I seem
to be experiencing with my Siemens Music ITE hearing aids.
I wonder if it is possible, if my intermittent nose dripping a drainage
can cause my hearing curves to vary significantly enough from morning to
afternoon, as to require different high frequency compensation in the
morning than that required in the afternoon. I am not a person who is
alergic to pollens, but my hearing quality seems to vary with my nose
dripping. If my hearing curves can vary as I describe, how does one
adjust hearing aids for optimum performance?
Is this a common problem with hearing aid users who have variable
amounts of nose dripping and congestion?
Thanks for any comments,
