Sudden onset of hearing loss
I'm 54 and in good health. About two weeks ago, I noticed my hearing in my left ear had diminished by about 25 percent, and the tinnitus I've had for about seven years seemed elevated. The hearing loss has an associated feeling that you get when you change altitude and your ears haven't "popped" yet to equalize the pressure. I also seem to have some hearing loss in my right ear. I've made an appointment with the best ENT doc in town, but it's a month from now, and I'm worried about what could cause this. From what I've heard of hearing loss, it's usually gradual. My dad has had a slight hearing loss for two years, but he's 86. I know this could be a simple as ear wax, but I've never had ear wax problems, and recent use of ear wax removal drops hasn't yielded anything. Any comments?
