Hearing Loss Left Ear - 74 year old FatherCan anyone recommend a remedy for my father who has been suffering with hearing loss in his left ear for approx the last 4 months?
He is 74 and in good health (apart from what I will describe) but does take medication for high blood pressure. He has tried to come off this medication many times but has not been successful in keeping 'normal' blood pressure (although that is a different story as I belive it increases with age but the doctor will not have this).
His blood pressure medication was changed in December 2009 and he suffered intermittent bouts of sickness (must be sick until stomach empty) and dizziness with a total wiped out feeling. This is usually in the evening and then he is ok the next day; normal appetite etc.
His medication was changed again (about 2 months ago) but he has suffered intermittent sickness again (still with must be sick until stomach empty) but not with the same wiped out feeling.
He has been left with hearing loss in his LEFT ear. He went for a hearing test and was told the sound is getting in the ear. They now want to do a MRI scan to see if the bones are 'stuck' together. We are not keen on MRI for an ear problems and are aware of the dangers.
We feel this maybe a viral problem. The tablets that they changed him to in December 2009 listed hearing problems as one of the side effects. His right ear is fine and compensating well for the hearing loss in the left.
He is a healthy weight, non-smoker, active, with no other health issues.
Any other information or suggestions of remedy welcome.
