Remember to visit our website to learn more! "saywhathearing" dot com “Hi, I’m Dr. Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat. Today’s topic is: ‘If I had a hearing loss, I would know about it’ – fact or fiction? This is fiction. Most individuals with hearing loss don’t go to bed one-night hearing, and then wake up in the morning and say, “I have a hearing loss.” In fact, it’s something that for the most part is gradual, and takes place over 10 to 20 years. Typically, the first sign that you’re having an issue is going to be when you get into a noisy environment, and you start noticing yourself struggling or asking people to repeat themselves."

Today’s topic is: “A little hearing loss is normal; I should wait until it gets really bad before I do something about it.” Fact or Fiction? Fiction.

"Hi, I’m Doctor Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat! Today’s topic is: “All hearing aids sound the same; Fact or Fiction? This is Fiction.” All hearing aids do not sound the same. In fact, saying that they do is like saying all cars drive the same. So, while all hearing aids do work to help you hear better, the way in which they do that, and the sound quality will differ."

“Hi, I’m Doctor Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat! Today’s topic is: “Tinnitus, otherwise known as ringing in your ears can be one of the symptoms of hearing loss. Fact or Fiction? Fact.” Tinnitus, or that ringing in your ears is often one of the earliest symptoms of hearing loss. The good news is that hearing aids often times will help alleviate the tinnitus. While they don’t make it go away completely, when you’re able to hear other sounds it makes the ringing less noticeable.” In this series, SayWhatHearing interviewed an audiologist to get her take on popular topics related to hearing loss.

“Hi, I’m Doctor Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat! Today’s topic is: “Your ears naturally clean themselves. Fact or Fiction? This is a Fact.” Your ears are designed to naturally expel any foreign substance including your own earwax. This is why I recommend washing only the outside of the ear with a wash cloth. We never recommend using a cotton swab, because that only serves to push the wax further in and can cause your ear to become impacted, which can result in hearing loss.” In this series, SayWhatHearing interviewed an audiologist to get her take on popular topics related to hearing loss.

“Hi I’m Dr. Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat. Today’s topic is: ‘Hearing aids are too expensive’ - fact or fiction? Well, this is a little bit of a tricky one. I like to say Fiction. While it is true that hearing aids aren’t cheap, you can consider them an investment in your quality of life and maintaining relationships of those around you. When you come in and have a conversation with your hearing care professional, part of what they will do is to help to find a solution for you that fits both your lifestyle and your budget.” Visit us at "saywhathearing" dot com

“Hi I’m Dr. Parrish, and this is Fact or Fiction with SayWhat. Today’s topic is: ‘If I’ve already got hearing loss, there’s no need to protect my ears from loud sounds’ - fact or fiction? Fiction. While it can be deceiving (because sounds aren’t as loud as you remember them), to your inner-ear, they are just as loud and harmful as they ever were. Therefore it is really important now - if not even more important - to protect your hearing.” Visit us at "saywhathearing" dot com
