    Auditory Processing Disorder

    Recently, I've been looking up things on the internet and in books to find out what's wrong with me. It's so weird to think I might have found something to help me but I'm not sure if I should go to my doctor or not, or if he's even the right person. So I've always had hearing problems, from about 5th to 8th grade I went to a hearing center yearly and every year they told me nothing was wrong with my ears. My family disagreed. I have had inner ear infections many many times as a child and my mom was afraid that was why I would always go, "huh?" "what?" "repeat that?" or why I would just tune her out while reading or watching tv. It came to the point where I was reading the material before call to know what to expect and then I had to rely on subtle messages to get the picture, ie, lipreading, body language, things written on the board etc... It helped but still became very tiring. That's when I came across Auditory Processing Disorder story and it instantly touched me. I had multiple friends and family fill out a survey on symptoms of it and many of them had lots of the symptoms of APD checked for me. I haven't told them what the survey was, yet I just want to make sure. But I want some advice on who I should go to get diagnosed or help.
