It sounds like you need to have an MRI to make sure there is no serious problem, but I would check with an ENT first.
Hi, I am having hearing loss in my left ear for the past 2 weeks. I am taking hypothyroid meds. I have consulted ENT doc and they prescribed prednisolone, methylcobal inj. for my ear problem. Still there is no improvement. I want to hear from those who have the same problem with hypothyroidism on improvement or not and any advice related with this.
the numbness sounds like it could be a schwannoma - maybe - MRI if you reckon
Hi, I am also a hypothyroid patient. I would like to share with you. I also took 100 mcg for the last one and half years after having a partial thyroidectomy. In january 2009, I took TSH test and found to be normal and the doc think I am improving and the doc advised me to take 50 mcg. In April 2010, I started having problem of hearing loss, which could be due to low dose of thyroxine ( I think I should take 100 mcg). I consulted my doc and he prescribed steroid (antiinflammaory) and methylcobalamine for my hearing loss. Its been improving but not at all cure. I think your problem is same with me. I think your thyroixine dose is low. Take a TSH test and check whether your dose is in appropriate dose. But I have no idea whether my and your with be a permanent or not. I want to hear from you also regarding your medications and on your improvement.
My problem of partial hearing loss has resolved about 68% after taking steroid tab n methylcobalamin inj for about 4 weeks. If you take steroid then you should be carefull. My problem may be related because of appropriate dose of hypothyroid med which was taking 50 but now 100. My problem resolved within 4 to 5 weeks. My steroid tab may be because of inflammation of my ear nerves.
Hope you get well soon.
