Hi has anybody had hearing problems at work? How did you overcome this and is there any support available? ( other than using a hearing aid and using saline)
Hearing: Hi has anybody had hearing... - PCD Family Suppor...
Hello I work as a vehicle technician and we have hearing tests due to a noise workshop environment and all my test come back as I have mild hearing loss which my work do not like and they try to make me sign disclaimers.
I do really notice my hearing loss especially in areas where other noise or loud talking is going on.
I do not have any aids for hearing.
I would say many of us with PCD have hearing loss to some extent, which can affect their everyday lives. Some try to live with it until it gets to a point where a hearing aid will help. It maybe worth going to your GP and getting referred to the audiology department at your local hospital, where they can test the extent of your loss and whether you need hearing aids.
I am having the same problem myself and I just followed up with my ENT. I have some hearing loss in the right ear. My ENT prescribed Pulmicort nebules which is being adding to my saline nasal rinse everyday. The new medication helped my sinus a lot surprisingly and my hearing got better. I was told that if needed in the future I can benefit from tubes being put surgically in my ear(s). The hearing impairment can be embarrassing and socially isolating and I hate being judged by others at work when I have a hearing impairment.
