I'm in shock after today. I had a detailed hearing test and saw the consultant. He said I had practically no hearing left in my left ear and there wasn't anything he could do to help me. This is probably the result of a viral infection I had a couple of months ago,. I don't know what to do, not being able to hear has really affected me in just the last two months. i can't make out conversations in noisy rooms, can't hear my baby crying in the night, alarm clock, DC's general chat. I know people suffer worse things but I just want to cry at the moment. Anyone got any advice/simliar to help me?
No, I wasn't thinking enough to ask. Dh says I need to phone the RNID tomorrow. I have a scan booked and then a follow up so i will go with questions next time. I never expected them to be unable to help.
Why did he say that they was nothing he can do. I had a similar problem with my ear which went deaf after a virus and after 6 months and hearing test they found that I had allergies to grass and house dust mites and gave me a nasal spray within 1 month I could hear again.
I would ask for more information as to why they can't do anything.
