Very much agree!
Time is of the essence with SSHL!
The sooner the treatment is initiated, the better the odds are for recovery of lost hearing. Playing it safe with allergy otc drugs is a plan for disappointment.

Oh people do a search on all the drugs that contribute to hearing loss issues. My daughter was so messed up on vicodin for too long and her husband found later sold to her illegally by a money hungry pharmacist..no I never posted this before but it's true. She spent 13 months in rehab from this horrid drug. Mixed with some other drugs an MD was writing for her.

And yet so many here defend these dangerous drugs and now there are lawsuits going on to the producers of many of these opioids.

My daughter had to work hard on letting go of all the anger she dealt with or it would eat her alive.

Drugs associated with hearing loss. I forgot to mention the MD kept giving my daughter quinine drug and all it took was magnesium, she had no clue back then and too trusted the doc and drugs. He' s low life in my mind.

Louder, please, for the people in the back!

Couldn’t rep you either.

And a completely unrelated response to your comment.

My left ear would not equalize on descent of a flight. My Eustachian tube was blocked. I assumed it would normalize after a few days but it didn't so I went to an ENT who did very little so I found another one. By that time it was too late, I have a permanent loss of over 40 dB at 4 kHz. It sucks, I was a professional recording and live sound engineer.

High doses of Prednisone asap is what the ENT tried and a few other things. Get some medical help asap! Get a second opinion if you think you aren't getting aggressive treatment. Time is of the essence.

Sorry, but I'm about to scare the crap out of you.


December 2011 I had a 90% loss of hearing in my right ear. I was also having trouble with balance and tinnitus. It took a few months of this and that kind of treatment and by April 2012 my right side hearing was completely gone. I had an MRI. The MRI revealed a small Acoustic Neuroma (google it) that had destroyed the vestibular-cochlear nerves on right side. Meaning the hearing in that ear would never return.


I suggest you find a specialist who knows about Acoustic Neuromas, get yourself an MRI with contrast and see if you have one or not.


Hopefully you don't.

Going through SSHL treatments started with ENT. Two injections in the effected ear and noise sensitivity increased with sense of sound but not clear. Hope this is positive

My daughter is reporting her stone deaf hearing loss in the ear that does NOT have a Implant is sometimes getting some sounds, like she may be getting some sound back, she's using a growth hormone so who knows...gotta keep the hope. Miracles can happen as I've heard say.
