I recently went along to a BTA support group for the first time (I highly recommend going!). One of the key learnings from many I spoke to was that a hearing aid can really help, especially when you're having a T spike.
I got referred by my GP to our local ENT team and was lucky enough to be seen by a very understanding doctor who had T himself. He looked at my hearing test results (I have mild/moderate high frequency hearing loss) and agreed to prescription 2 NHS earring aids as he fully understood my frustration with the T - I suspect he was being very generous as the audiologist told me my hearing loss wasn't normally bad enough to be given them.
I've been using these aids (ReSound Danalogic) behind the ear models and have really found them useful - especially when my T is screaming.
As I've been some real benefit, I'm considering investing in some 'invisible' aids that I'll feel more comfortable wearing in public (ones that sit almost hidden in the ear canal). I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on models and where best to buy - for example is Boots a safe option.?
I'd appreciate any thoughts before I spend £££!
