Hello doctor,

I have constant tinnitus and sensorineural hearing loss for about five months. I am sending you reports of my PTA and otoscopy. Now I have ear fullness, tinnitus, and hearing loss in my left ear. My right ear is normal. Tinnitus is continuous for past four months. I do not have any vertigo or dizziness episodes. Please tell me is my symptoms of Meniere's disease. Please tell me the cure for ear fullness.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). There is minimal loss in the left ear. The symptoms do not seem to be due to Meniere's disease. The tinnitus is due to the hearing loss. Take tablet Cinnarizine 75 mg once daily for 15 days and tablet Vitamin B12 1500 micrograms once daily for 15 days. You will definitely be benefited. Consult with your doctor before taking them. Avoid any excess mobile usage or earphones use. Take care.

Thank you doctor,

What about left ear fullness? Do you think if I have Meniere disease my otoscopy report will not be normal?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

On otoscopy, there are no findings in Meniere's. Your symptoms and audiogram are not suggestive of Meniere's. Ear fullness can be due to eustachian tube blockage. Please tell me do you have any history of nasal blockage or congestion or throat infection in the recent past?
