Hearing loss middle ear HELP!!!!!I have just found this site and I wonder if anyone has got the same problem as me and if so, am I going deaf or is there any hope. On July 31st I saw my doctor for a mild case of Vertigo which I have had periodically for 3 years. He prescibed Serc. I too it for a month and nothing happened. On Sept 2 i woke up and realized I couldn't hear the dial tone in my right ear. I also had a very full head like a bad cold or flying in a plane. I went back to doctor and he said take more Serc and made an appointment with an ENT for Oct 1st.
Whilst waiting for Oct 1 to come around I found that I could hear certain things in that ear but I have become overly sensitive to many noises, such as loud talking , cat meowing, baby's crying. I mean sensitive to the point of cringing away and blocking my ear.
I went to the ENT and he told me I have lost my hearing in the lower regions in my inner ear , possibly due to a burst blood vessel. He has ordered a CAT scan on Oct 16 and a ABR test on Oct 11th. He said if it is a burst blood vessel it might get better on its own or I would have to live with it.
I am 61 years old and in good health and I have never been so upset as I am now. I am desperate to find out if anybody has got a problem like this and if so, does it get any better or do I have to live with it.

Exrenally you could , at night , put some Glycerine on cotton wool and sleep with that in the ear. Remove in the morning

I have left ear- hearing problem. Mild/soft voices not heared. I feel fullness in my ear. Not sensitive to murmers/ mild calls from my co-works. I am shouting while talking to people, as I am not getting proper feedback from my ears.
I would like to try external application of Glycerine. My question is, is there any feedback from users, if any inprovements by doing so? Currently I am taking Syphilinum(nosode)( weekly once) and Lycopodium (daily)
Would appreciate your advise.

In 2006 I suffered a 60db single-sided sudden sensorineural hearing loss, followed later by vertigo attacks and a diagnosis of Menieres Disease. I have since made a *full* recovery after suffering for 3 years. In my case these symptoms were the result a food allergy (which I have also recovered from).
I created a web site to document my own experience since it appears most ENTs have little idea about simple allergies (e.g. food, environmental) as one possible cause of significant & sudden hearing loss. [I can't post the URL on this site directly, but my user profile has it]
It includes scans of my hearing tests & allergy results.
( the House Ear Clinic - is an example of a medical practice that acknowledges the connection between allergies and hearing disorders. )
Good Luck to all & get well soon!
