What did they do? I hope you got immediate high-dose prednisone and possibly other treatment, and, if your hearing didn't return, got an MRI with contrast.

Once it becomes clear whether your hearing is stable and you get a diagnosis (hopefully), you can consider hearing aids. An audiologist can help with that.

But first you need to figure out, if possible, why your hearing left. Have they considered autoimmune inner ear disease?

A great site is
www.dizziness-and-balance.com, check out the hearing problems section. Here's the info on AIED:

Good luck.
