in May of 2014 i went to bed just fine and woke up with hearing loss in my right ear. the ENT doctor has treated everything but my hearing loss. Now he is talking about hearing aids.

I read on a Google search that Vitamins A and C deficiency can cause this. It can in large doses, restore the hearing. I started about three days ago taking extra vitamins and i will post in a few weeks what the results are.

    I am really sorry to hear that you have lost your hearing I know from my partners experience that it can be very distressing.

    Fortunately for him a referral to the ENt specialist did weild some positive result as despite our GP looking into his ear and telling us there was no wax in it the speciialsit said that there was compacted ear wax in his ear as far down on his ear drum and that was wy he was in pain and partially lost his earing.

    I am certain if you have attended the hearing clinic they will have done lots of test and investigations and after all this time come to the conlsion that you have actually lost your hearing.

    That in itself will be very upsetting I'm sure but I would certainly go with their recommendations to improe your quality of life.

    During our recnt trauma as thats exactly what it was very traumatic, we did lots of research and we came across many people going to bed and waking up the next day with no hearing did you have a virus at all prior to your hearing loss? This seems to  be fairly common occureence there seems no rhymn or reason that hearing just goes.

    I have not heard abou itamin deficiencies? do you suufer from any oter health complaint that may affect your hearng at all?

    I wish you the best of luck wth your future but quality of life to me is more important that what I would look like wearing a hearing aid, I couldn't bear that lost myself. So give it a go.

    I know I was treated for fluid as a potential reason for my loss originally ,they sort of find the source by default , have they done that ?

      My ears are clear. Just keep losing my hearing. Doctor has no explanation. I don't think he cares. Did a surgery for deviated septum. Nothing helped. Talking hearing aid now.No way!!!!!

    Find another doctor, no one will advocate for your health as well as you . If you accept answers that don't satisfy you , you will never solve a problem . I went to 3 doctors to solve my hearing issues . The human body is designed to do things and when something is wrong it is time to find a person to fix the problem . I have permanent nerve damage not ear related in my ribs that I havedealt with for over 14 years , it took me 5 doctors to find the problem. If it doesn't show up on a cat scan or an MRI , most doctors don't like to admit they can't find a problem , so they disregard you . Find a doctor who will

    I am so sorry about your hearing how worrying for you. Be careful taking vit A, you can overdose and cause problems. Vit C is OK as if you have too much the body just gets rid of any excess.

    It would be interesting to read about your results, whether good, bad or indifferent.

      As of today there is no prognosis of ever getting back to normal hearing.

      I am on the vitamin therapy(not a doctors suggestion). But i got nothing from them but a bill every time i went.

      They are indifferent and that is how I will be now.

      One 'specialist', after examining me said "I dont know whats wrong" I refused to pay him. He took me to court. Judge agreed with me.
