distorted out of tune hearing (higher pitch only)
Hi...I went to the ent a few months ago for a strange symptom. Every week, for a few hours, my right ear gets a pressure feeling and within half hour my hearing gets very distorted, it almost sounds robotic. High pitched sounds sound tinny, and out of tune (like a bad piano). Listening to music is unbearable, and my daughters voice, being so high pitched is very uncomfortable.
The hearing tests were normal. He said I could do a mri, but it probly would be normal ( to look for a acoustic neuroma). I didnt do the mri, as it would cost me alot of money.
I dont know if it could be related, but I was in the past low in iron and vit d. I take supplements now, but have forgotten to take them over the last month.
Any ideas on what this could be...the dr kind of blew me off. He said I could go to the house ear institute in LA, which I am considering doing.
Thanks for any advice
