hearing loss

The ent I went to ordered an MRI and called to tell me that it showed nothing and just blew me off!  He obviously is not taking my situation seriously.  My sudden hearing loss was acute 2days ago, but then suddenly was 99 percent better when I awoke yesterday!  Now again today I am almost completely deaf in the left ear. This intermittant hearing loss is puzzeling and confusing.  I also feel a building pressure and tinitis, which I've had for months. I don't have any dizziness.

Hi, intermittent periods of hearing loss can occur with eustachian tube dysfunction. There are tubes called ‘Eustachian tubes’ which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears and hearing loss. In Eustachian tubes dysfunction, the blockage can be intermittent. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.

My dad have been suffering from hearing problem for last several years. He just feels an isolation from social. So we decided to do a hearing evaluation at Hearing Solution at Toronto and buy a hearing aid. Many have said hearing aids can make a big difference to quality of life. What is your opinion dear friends?
