Do I need a hearing test?

I am 24 with reduced hearing in my right ear. It sounds like I am under water and has been like this about 6 months. Am I of an appropriate age to book a hearing test?

Answer: 

There is no lower age limit to requesting a hearing test. As you feel that it is only one ear being affected, you should contact your GP in the first instance to request a referral to a local ENT clinic.
