Hearing Aid question
« on: Jan 14 2013, 05:07 PM »
My husband was diagnosed with Meniers a year ago.  He had a very bad time last year with several vertigo attacks lasting several hours.  Fortunately, he has not had a vertigo attack since April, but suffers from hyperacusis. 

He has ordered a hearing aid and seems to be thinking this will help the tinnitus, hyperacusis and fullness in his ear.  I feel he is being too optimistic, but don't want to say anything. 

The forum has been a great support to me to understand how he is feeling.

Hello Summer,   I've just come on board.   About 5 years ago I was given the opportunity of being part of a trial  for new hearing aids re tinnitus.   My main concern then was the hyperacusis, even though the tinnitus was very loud.   Anyway, after wearing them for several hours each day for nearly 12 months, the difference was phenomenal and the tinnitus virtually disappeared.   Foolishly I thought well that's it - I'm fixed and it's only very recently (the last week) that I have gone back to using them as everything has gone haywire again.  Personally, I can only recommend them.   My vertigo attacks are also very severe now, but am determined to get back to semi normality.
