Sudden Hearing Loss & Tinnitus should ENT prescribe steroids by now?About a 7 days ago I had sudden hearing loss along with tinnitus and fullness in my right ear. I have been to the ENT 2x and they have done 2 hearing tests. The tests were consistent and showed mild hearing loss. Also waiting for the results of MRI....
I have done a lot or research and have found that a typical course of treatment is steroids, and it is important to do this within the first 7-10 days. As of right now my dr. has not suggested steroid treatment given my loss is minor.
Is this correct or should I insist on the steroid treatment? I am really having a tough time with the tinnitus. The fullness feels a little better.
