Not all the time, no. Well maybe I should say not as dizzy as I feel on these occasions. On its better days if I dip my head quickly to dry my hair the room starts to spin wildly. Mine seems to go in cycles. I can wake up one day and hearing will be at a minimum after noticing that during the night I have woken up to the loud high pitched louder than normal screeching in that bad ear. That said, it didn't happen on this occasion, I just woke up with reduced hearing. My GP has just fobbed me off with more meds that calm the dizziness, but the side effect of those (it is also prescribed for schizophrenia!) is also unpleasant. I stopped using these after a few days. I can't believe that a drug so harmful and with quite a nasty adverse event has been released on the public, but if you believe the blurb then only a small percentage of people experience hearing loss.. Unfortunately, I am one of these..
I can't say I have noticed that the weather affects it in any way. It just pleases itself. What really concerns me though is reading that it can eventually affect the other ear.. At the moment the left hearing is fine, but it makes you so aware that you if you lose that then you are in big trouble.. I don't think I want to dwell on that thought too much! I can only assume that this is my new level of hearing as it has been nearly 8 weeks since that last dose of Naproxen. I can live with the tinnitus (which on some days is a lot worse than others) but losing my hearing really upsets me.
I can't even imagine being offered an implant by the NHS. I think I would have to be totally deaf (God forbid) to get that..
Wishing you all the best with yours and empathising greatly
