I was diagnosed with SSNHL 8 weeks ago- profound 90-120db loss across all frequencies. I regained some hearing in the 500hz-1500hz but still 90db loss :(
50mg prednisone for two weeks, 6 ear injections later and I'm still completely deaf in my left ear.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has had success after 8 weeks as I've been told that it will not recover after two weeks with my type of loss but not willing to give up hope just yet!
