Read thru the postings again, folks, OP is reporting some positive comments. Profound hearing loss is NOT what I'm getting.

People need to state their age and such things......

Hearing loss in people 12-25 can be onset of AN (tumors on the hearing nerves) which can just happen or be part of a condition like NF2.

If hearing slowly goes an MRI is in order.

Family member here with AN's didn't even discover it herself - mom said she was always asking her to repeat herself from one side.

May not be the answer to the OP, but hearing loss should always be a concern.

Actually, that is exactly what I am getting. His last comment said he is getting more sensitivity to sound, but he still doesnít have clarity. If he really doesnít have clarity he probably does have severe to profound hearing loss. Severe to profound hearing loss doesnít mean you donít hear things, it means you donít have any clarity.

If you canít understand someone speaking loudly and clearly directly to you in a quiet room ó if you cannot understand them at all or can only understand a few words, then you are probably unaidable and legally deaf in that ear.

I am not saying that he has no hope of recovery or that he wonít find a treatment that works for him, but as it stands now this is what it seems like to me.
