Problems started last Oct with a feeling of imbalance that came on fairly suddenly. I rang the go and was told probable labyrinthitis. Over a few days it got worse and I had a bad few days. It slowly improved over a couple of weeks. No ear symptoms during this time. I was then fine for around 4 weeks before the imbalance creeper in again and after about a week worsened and I was off work for 2 wks. It slowly improved over a few wks and I managed party time back at work. Seen a specialist during second episode who thought probable labyrinthitis with second episode a decompensstion. Had an mri done which was apparently normal. Hearing test showed bilateral mud frequency loss (cookie bite) but specialist felt this was probably congenital and unconnected. Fast forward about 6 wks after feeling well the dizziness creeped back in and I experienced a drop in hearing in my left ear lasting around 48 hrs before subsiding and leaving me with a low rumbling tinnitus (like a car engine in the distance e). I seen gp duribg the hearing loss and he couldnt see anytging my ear. He used a tuning fork and I could hear it better at the front than back of ear. Ive woke today and my hearing has reduced in my left ear again and sound seems to be reverberating in it. Any ideas? I've arranged to see my specialist again.thanks.
