Hopefulme Posted September 30, 2018 Report Share Posted September 30, 2018 2 years before, I was diagnosed with mild to profound sensorineural hearing loss. I had hearing difficulties since 5 th grade. But it was somehow easily manageable by me and so never went for a audi test. However 2 years back I experienced tinnitus in one of the ear and then I hd to rush to ent and audiologist who confirmed hearing loss. CT scan was done which showed no imperfections. I started wearing hearing aids however not too often since I was okay managing somehow. Last year I saw sudden increase in the tinnitus in the ear and also it had started in the other ear. We again rushed to hospital however no/ minimal change was found int he test results. But every day my tinnitus just keeps on increasing and now it is so loud in both the ears a screaming screeching sound. Doctors did not want me to go for MRI as they say it is not required since I do not have any other symptoms. Now my question is why the tinnitus becoming so liud day by day (to add to this: i have been depressed and stressed about it all time). Also I saw some posts where people say they are not eligible for cochlear implants because of some deformities in the cochlea. Cochlear implant is the only hope i have for the future. What are the symptoms which says i may not be eligible for cochlear implant in future? I am just 27 years old planning to start to masters education and so scared all the time.
