The problem is since I have been wearing them, my ears hurt and have been very tender. Is this something I will adjust to? Answer: Properly ﬁt hearing aids should not cause your ears to hurt. It is fairly common to have a slight tenderness when they are new, but this should subside. I tell my patients that if they are bothered by the presence of their hearing aids, they should return to have them checked. Often a slight adjustment can remove a pressure point that is uncomfortable. If your ears are tender, then your hearing aids may be either too tight or possibly have an area that rubs your ear. You should return to where you purchased your hearing aids and have them modiﬁed or remade to ﬁt you better.
