Does anyone suffer from their hearing and vision not being in sync?

Over the last few months, no matter which of the 3 TVs I watch in the house, I have noticed that the actors' mouths and voices are not in sync. It doesn't happen all the time but it is becoming more frequent. I mentioned it to my Dr who replied 'Haven't got a clue what that could be' and left it at that! I am not at all impressed by his response.

Is this normal for someone suffering from Fibro?

Does anyone have an idea of what it could be or what is causing this?

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

  • Not hearing and Vision.... myself.... its vision and co ordination.. I see what I want I pick it up and so many times I pick up the thing next to it.. It's ok in the house but when shopping I have had my shopping arrive by home delivery and some of the items I despair... It's the right item but I,ve picked up the flavour next to it by mistake usually a flavour I hate..... It happens so often now I get my OH checking anything I choose before we get to the checkout

    I am hoping its fibro and not anything worse cos I,m only in my 40s

  • Sandy - I suspect you have an aerial or transmission fault!

    I have this problem in my home, and have been blaming the TV companies. It is getting increasingly frequent.

    If you have unsynchronised conversations in real life it might be worrying, but if it's only on the telly, it's them not you!

    Like VG, I sometimes suffer with unsynchronised shopping, but as long as it's chocolate, I'm not bothered!

  • It is not you that is having trouble it is your tv set, not even fibro could do that. Mine has been like that for days now and then it fixes itself for a while. I notice it more with the freeview but Sky is the worst for it so I am not surprised your GP left it at that.

    I am like VG, my hand eye co-ordination is shot to hell. If I need to get shopping in, just bits not a major shop, could not do that if I tired, I often pick up the thing next to what I am actually aiming for. Often I do not even notice until I get home because as far as I am concerned I bought what I wanted.

    As for swimming VG, you're on your own girl xxxxxx

  • Yes my hearing and vision are all over the place. Some days better, some days worse than others.

  • It's worse on Toshiba TVs for some reason. The best way to check if its you or the TV is to watch someone talking to you in person. If they're in sync it's the TV not you

  • Thank you to everyone for your replies.

    Suzy B, I think you've hit the nail on the head as all my TVs are Toshiba.

    Thank you again to everyone who has taken time to read and answer my query. Your help is very much appreciated.
