Recheck hearing: See your local ENT and obtain another hearing test if it hasn't been performed recently. Word recognition score or speech discrimination score will be a good measure of how well you can understand words with amplified speech. If this score is good, hearing aids will generally work well. If this score is poor, even hearing aids may not help. Your ENT may recommend cochlear implants if appropriate.

Can't do much: If you are having problems with discrimination of words, that means you are developing neural degeneration of the cochlear nerve. You may have auto-immune sensori-neural hearing loss. Sometimes, oral or intra-tympanic steroids may halt the process and sometimes improve it. See an otologist.
