can siezures cause hearing loss

When i was in preschool, i had sezures in my sleep that would make it almost impossiable to talk from hours to even days. I was dignosed with parcial complex sizers, and i think was also dignosed with epilepsy. I was wondering if that could cause me to lose my hearing, because about a year later i lost almost all of my hearing in my left ear. I also was taking depakote sprinkles.  I'm just trying to piece every thing together.         I also have a lot of other medical problems that the doctors can figure out. Oh, i stopped taking depakote in like first or second grade

Hi there,
Complex partial seizures might arise from any lobe of the brain like the mesial temporal lobe, amyglada, hippocampus. Myoclonic epilepsy may be associated with sensorineural deafness. Reversible sensorineural deafness may be seen with Depakote.It is best to get a complete ear examination done by an ENT surgeon to know the exact cause. I hope you find this information useful. Do keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
