I just got home with my first hearing aid, only in my right ear - Does anybody have helpful tips for adjusting to wearing it? I have a hissing sound going on that might drive me batty - and yes, I know I can go back and they will make adjustments to the unit. On the upside, it's so small nobody can see it - my 29 year old son thought it was hidden in my earring turn

It sounds like feedback going on. You may have to go ahead and get it adjusted.

I'm going to have to go in this afternoon - I've tried playing with the button to make my own adjustments and have succeeded in messing up the mask settings - now I have the constant ringing AND the hissing, not quite what I was going for.
 
I still can't tell if my left ear rings or not, there is no hearing loss in that ear - I just know there's lots of bells in my head
