One of the first signs of hearing impairment is loss of memory and strain on the brain could be the root cause.

You may not notice any symptoms as your hearing gradually and almost imperceptibly begins to diminish. It could be mild, but your ears will begin to notice a lack of sound. Your brain will then begin working a little harder to translate and boost the sounds that you are able to hear. You might not notice that your brain is now working overtime for you to comprehend sound. This kind of constant strain can take up a lot mentally, so things like cognitive function and memory get pushed to the back.

Studies have shown that individuals with hearing loss who wore hearing aids had a significant increase in cognitive function. So if you’re noticing some memory loss, it can be an early sign of hearing loss.
