  1. Chill out brother. Everything will be fine. As for me, I’m fighting my own demons. Went suddenly deaf in left ear and all that remains is loud tinnitus. Received ‘pred’ shots through eardrum three times. Went through oral ‘pred’ mega doses. Nothing. Hoping for a miracle. Anxiety and depression always looming, but you have to fight back. No choice.

      Jees LS :
      About half of people with SSHL will recover some or all of their hearing spontaneously, usually within one to two weeks from onset. Eighty-five percent of those who receive treatment from an otolaryngologist (a doctor, sometimes called an ENT, who specializes in diseases of the ears, nose, throat, and neck) will recover some of their hearing.

      What causes sudden deafness?

      Only 10 to 15 percent of the people diagnosed with SSHL have an identifiable cause. The most common causes are:

      Infectious diseases
      Trauma, such as a head injury
      Autoimmune diseases such as Cogan’s syndrome
      Ototoxic drugs (drugs that harm the sensory cells in the inner ear)
      Blood circulation problems
      A tumor on the nerve that connects the ear to the brain
      Neurologic diseases and disorders, such as multiple sclerosis
      Disorders of the inner ear, such as Ménière’s disease


      • Had an MRI and all is clear along with other examinations and audio testing by an ENT. At this point, you can say my condition is idiopathic, which is quite common in SSHL. Recovery can be partial, full, sudden, gradual, or not at all. The last couple of days, the tinnitus has eased a bit. Could be an improvement or could be I’m just getting used to it. My hearing threshold seems to have improved slightly, but what I can hear in my left ear is distorted. Hopefully, things continue to improve, even if slightly.

        One of these days, I’ll let you all know the medical costs involved in all this. All I can say at this point is thank goodness for Medicare and Humana. I’m also thankful my right ear is fine. I cannot imagine having this condition in both ears.
