Good Day

It sounds like you may need to visit your audiologist to have the settings of your hearing aids checked. Hearing aids these days are digital and programmable so usually there are things that can be done to enhance the comfort of the fitting. 

There is also quite a lot of adaptation that needs to happen when wearing hearing aids, so one needs to sometimes persevere and often you will find that the sounds are no longer bothersome after you are used to them. 

All of this must definitely be discussed with your audiologist who will, with you, decide on a pathway towards improved comfort.

Good luck!
