I've been having trouble with hearing from my right side, it sounds like people are mumbling when they aren't talking too loud and standing to my right. I've also been told that I speak too loudly on various occasions, and that only happened recently (past 4 months maybe). I have no pain or any other symptoms, and I haven't been exposed to any trauma, nor am I taking any medications. Could it be a serious hearing loss or just a wax buildup on the inside? my ear is clean as far as I know, and I don't have ringing sounds or dizziness.
I read your question and i understand your concern. It looks like age related hearing loss also called presbycusis. Needs to be confirmed. Talk to an otolaryngologist and let them sort it out for you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
