Hi, i was 'diagnosed' with menieres around 10 years ago after being rushed into accident and emergency one night with a really bad bout of dizzness that i hope never to experience ever again. I was told by my doctor some days later that i probably had menieres without any tests but after listening to my symptoms. I took this as a good diagnosis after reading up on menieres and realising i had been suffering for a few years from pretty much all the symptoms. A few years ago i saw a hearing specialist in the private sector who did way more tests and listened to my story and was not sure about my diagnosis and thought it more likely that i had damage caused by my antidepressant which is ototoxic (toxic to your ears). Thats a little history but my question today is... I have recently (2 days ago) lost a large portion of my hearing in one ear and was surprised as i thought hearing loss from menieres would be very gradual. i had some slight sensitivity to sound out of the blue and within an hour or two had the hearing loss/ringing. my sensitivity to low frequency sounds has dropped dramatically in that ear and it feels like im walking around with my finger in my ear. i have already lost a fairly small amount already at some point in the past 20 years. Ive just returned from the doctors and i dont seem to have a cold, any blockages or any damage inside my ear so it looks like its the menieres. Does this sound like a common scenario for menieres sufferers when encountering hearing loss? Thanks for reading.
