maybe you should ask doctor if it is otosclerosis. that is easily treated by a stapes operation. i myself have it and due for surgery in november. i have lost 80 percent of my hearing in my left ear. its worth checking out
You poor thing. This must be very upsetting and confusing.
I'm sure you have googled Meniere's. Did you feel like your symptoms fit?
Autoimmune is awfully broad. It doesn't sound like your doctors have been very helpful.
Did they suggest hearing aids? If so, have they helped?
Have you had an ABR or BAER test done?
Here are some specialties you might consider:
-Audiology (second opinion)
-ENT (second opinion)
-Rheumatology (if it truly is autoimmune, they have experience in this area)
Good luck and keep us posted!
I'm trying to treat hearing loss from antibiotics. how can you know if the hearing loss is autoimmune? can a immunologist help with that? I'm handicapped and can't work now
