  2. I have an ear infection in one ear and fluid buildup behind the eardrums. I canโ€™t hear very well. Iโ€™ve lost about 99% of my hearing. ENT Dr said it could take 6 weeks to drain out and hearing to come back. Anyone else experience this? If so. What did you do to resolve this? How long did it take to get better?

  4. Can you do a video on reverse curve hearing loss please? I had a sudden loss in one ear in my thirties. Old analog hearing aid was ๐Ÿ‘Ž so getting my first hearing aid (thirty plus years later) supposed to be helpful now. Is my type of loss (reverse curve) common?

  5. I have been using behind-the-ear hearing aids since I was 4 years old. I was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. I have no problem with my speech. I can hear but I don't understand. Is there any way to improve this problem? I don't know. I want to benefit from the knowledge of people who are more experienced than me. I want to connect with people like me. I wonder how their day went. I am the only person I know who wears a hearing aid. No one understands my problem.

    English is not my mother tongue. I used a translation program, sorry for my mistake.

  6. I am 48. On 31/08/2021, after a short afternoon nap, I suddenly could no longer hear from my right ear. The conduit to the tympan had been swollen for a couple of days but nothing serious. I went to the ER and diagnosis was otitis (there was redness surrounding the tympan) with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drops for 5 days. No change. In the shower, could not feel the water jet hitting my tympan. It was that bad. Went back to the ER. Now prescribed oral antibiotics for 5 days. Amoxicillin. No change. Finally went to my GP who diagnosed SSHL and immediately put on oral steroids by an ENT specialist for 10 days 60mg of Prednisone. I did get more flexibility in the ear but no change as to my hearing. Oral steroids were extended for another 4 days at the same dosage and tapered for 3 days. No change. First injection into the ear via the tympan. 1 week later no change. Audio still shows -60 to 80 db for lower frequencies and between -60db and -120db for higher frequencies. Now on a further 7 days of oral steroids, 60mg Prednisone. No change. Absolutely devastated. A buzzing noise in my ear outside when there is a lot of traffic. And it feels blocked. Still clinging to hope but time is against me….

  7. Dr. Cliff, I have been following your videos intently the last few weeks. I have been experiencing terrible diplacusis. Being a professional violinist and Orchestras teacher this has been a frustrating, discouraging and difficult time. Can you shed any light on the possible cause, treatment that you know of? Additionally, since December of 2020 I have lost nearly all hearing in my right ear. It's very odd because the degree to which I can hear changes day by day and even with in a given day

  11. My problem is a slightly distorted "edge" in sounds of a certain frequency. I had an audiogram and it shows that I have 94% hearing in my right ear but about 88% in my left ear. I am a former Professional vocalist – I also suffer with sound Sensitivity and can't stand noisy places. Years ago, I originally got hyperacusis and tinnitus (back in 1997) but over time things improved. This past year however, I have sound sensitivity and music can only be played at a very soft level (I never listened to 'rock' music) for music now has an electronic distorted "edge" to it. I do my very best to stay out of noisy environments and I take specific vitamins that (supposedly) help your hearing or preserve it (who knows, there's a lot of baloney out there) – my question is, over time, will this 'distorted edge' improve, as it has done in the past? I had a head cold several months ago and it left my with Diplacusis, where one ear hears at a different "Pitch" than the other and as a former vocalist I understand and am sensitive to pitch discrepencies. Also, a land line telephone dial tone is definitely "higher" in my left ear as opposed to my right ear. Right now, there is a slight improvement but I really am dismayed that, while I can still "hear" music, I don't have the same level of enjoyment since I don't really "hear" it as I used to. Any advice at all would certainly Be appreciated immensely Doctor Cliff.

  12. When there is a loud sound like someone pounds a nail, I hear some cracking noise like plastic being crumpled in my left ear. I have a bell's palsy two years ago. Is it because of the bell's palsy why I hearing this?

  13. I listen to music a lot
    And my right ear is ringing really loud for 2 days now.
    I put rubbing alcohol and it burn a little so I'm hoping it's just ear infection and not permanent hearing loss…

  15. Hi Dr. Cliff, I am taking classes to finish my BSN and I have to write a paper about Nerve Deafness. I was wondering if Sensorineural Hearing Loss is the same thing? I hope you reply. Thank you !

  16. Would you have a video or feedback from patients on life with a CROS? Or similar aid?

    I am 40 now and have had SSD since age 1, I would like to know if patients who've introduced a hearing aid long after the onset of their deafness have experienced good benefit from it? E.g. to what degree are the main defects of SSD improved – like hearing in noisy environments, localisation, etc.?

    I would love to hear ๐Ÿ˜‰ if they feel their hearing is substantially aided by a CROS or similar.

    I find social situations so exhausting with just one ear.

  18. I can't hear with my right ear since childhood. ๐Ÿ™ It's sensorineural hearing loss. And there is no treatment of it (according to my doctor).

    I wish I could hear someday with my ear. I want to experience how it feels.
