The Hearing Test

I got my hearing tested on January 13, 2010 for the first time in three years at the  Austin Diagnostic Center Audiology Department.

I wasn't surprised at the results. The difference was that my hearing loss from 500hz to 8000hz was now moderate to severe. How to Read Your Audiogram . My audiogram looks like ski slope all downhill from 500Hz.  This is typical of someone like me who has been exposed to too much loud noise.

Penny, the audiologist recommended seeing an Ear Nose and Throat specialist first. No sweat, 2 days later and another hour spent at Austin Diagnostic Center another confirmation that I needed help with my hearing.
