Topic: Need Help: Hearing Aid Question
As a Vet, the Starkey Co. gives me a free hearing aid. It's flesh colored, fits in the ear canal and has a little plastic thread coming out the end. Like this on the link.
Well, I DO have a LOT of ear wax, so I pay daily attention to ear care, but after a few days, he thing stops giving me the 1,2,3 options (sound is kind like bleep, bleep-bleep and bleep-bleep-bleap). Then, after a few days there is either no sound (remember I clean my ears daily and don't PACK the wax in) is either nothing, or a screeches where the beeps were. At one point, I have even heard a voice trying to tell me something, but it is very short and inaudible.
1. Do you have one of these and have this problem
2. Can ear wax get into the inner workings of the device. The battery compartment is the only thing to my knowledge which opens up.
I wrote to Starkey and have an appointment with my audiologist next month, but I thought I'd "sound out" (HA-HA, HAHAHAHAHAH HA. HA. CHORTLE, CHUCKLE, HAHAHAHAHAHA! WHOeeeee my friends ............."HEAR!!!!!!" (titter, snort, bwah) first.
