Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I want to tell you that I have sensineural hearing loss and tinnitus according to my reports.

My doctor told me that I have mild sensineural hearing loss. I am sending you reports. I want to clear my doubts about sensineural hearing loss. Is my sensineural hearing loss progressive in future. Will my tinnitus cure of its own? Do I need any further testing like MRI? Please check.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since how many days are you having hearing loss and tinnitus? If it is since a few days you should try taking oral steroids. Your hearing loss can revert back. MRI or any other scan is not needed. But you do let me know if your tinnitus and hearing loss is sudden in onset or not.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I think my hearing loss and tinnitus is 4 months ago. I do not know it is sudden onset or not but I had fluid in ear that caused pain and swelling but now it is fine. My ENT told me that my hearing loss is not progressive. Please check my reports.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your hearing loss should not be progressive but I asked you for duration so that I can decide if oral steroids will reduce hearing loss or not. If symptoms are since four months then no point in giving steroids. You can start taking tablet called Absolut 3G which has multivitamins and Gingko Biloba which may or may not reduce tinnitus. But you take it once daily for 30 days and see if you have any improvement. Also get tympanometry done. Tympanometry tells us about middle ear pressure. If there is any pathology in middle ear then that can also cause tinnitus.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
