General Health Checks

Can you hear everything you need to hear?

Thinking about your hearing is part of general health checks.  When you were younger you may have had problem with repeat ear infections which are common in TS. When you become an adult you may lose some hearing earlier than other people because the nerves become damaged. Sometimes clinics check hearing routinely, if they don’t and you (or other people) think your hearing is not as good as it should be and you are missing out at school, college, uni, work or socially ask for a test called an audiogram.
