Ringing/ swooshing/ dizziness after antibiodics

Has anyone experienced anything similar? I had surgery in July and got a horrible infection. I was on numerous antibiodics including vancomycin, gentamyicin, Invanz, merripentum, clindamyicin, etc. Ever since I've been dizzy and have a constant swooshing in my ears. There is also pain a high pitched ringing that comes and goes. I'm not able to drive or work. I also kind of have some sort of brain fog. I had a hearing test and they say my hearing is fine. I also had a MRI that didn't show anything abnormal. How do you know if the little hairs in your ear were damaged? It's almost unbearable. I can't drive or work or take care of my children. Any advice?
