I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?

I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?

My vote is for...: Hearing aids with no sign language is better than sign language with no hearing aids. With hearing aids, one can hear broadcasts, such as music or voice, and one can hear what other people say (because the vast majority of people don't know how to express themselves using sign language). Also, with hearing aids, one can hear sounds from machines (like cars) and from animals (such as barking). ...Read more

I'm having headaches everyday and a little dizziness, I'm thinking it might be anemia, is there some home remedies for headaches that are effective?

?Hydration?: Both of your symptoms of headaches and dizziness could be caused by anemia. But you would often have other symptoms such as insomnia, leg cramps, pale skin, fatigue.

Nerves don't fix: The damage you do to the fine hearing mechanism from barotrauma is not like a laceration that will heal if you stitch it.Once you injure nerve cells, they are not forgiving. Chances of any improvement other than by selective amplification (hearing aids) is unlikely. ...Read more

I've had fluid in my ears since Saturday and am having difficulty hearing. I have also had sinus drainage and yellow phlegm, but no fever or pain. This morning I also had blood in my mucus. I am wondering if this is an ear infection or not?

Eustachian tube dysf: Are you popping your ears 30 to 40 times a day?

Fluid, ear drum two days ago. Used "swim-ear" over-the-counter and it burned 2nd time used, woke up clogged with hearing loss. Home remedy? Fly wed!

Need ear checked: Swim ear is an alcohol-based ear drop, hence the reason it burned. If your ear is clogged, it is difficult to determine the exact cause without looking at the ear. It could be the that you had wax in your ear that liquified and is now coating your ear drum or if you somehow developed fluid in the middle ear. Best to get it checked before you fly. ...Read more
