Sudden hearing loss!!!


Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Sarah and I was born with severe/profound hearing loss. I have 19% hearing left. I woke up last sat with sudden hearing loss and the doctor have put me on steroid for a week but my hearing is still the same! I’m very worried about this as they don’t know why this has happened! 


Has anyone on here been through this similar situation?

Hello, I'm sorry for your bad news, it happened exactly the same as you.
I had the same hearing loss as you, one morning when I got up I lost everything on the side severe with acute whistling (tinnitus) I had a cortisone treatment for a week unfortunately it does not work it is irretrievable I had no other choice but to be implanted.

I'am French I do not speak English. I use the translator to understand you and write you.
