Re: Hearing loss after sneeze
Glad to hear you're seeing an ENT. My daughter had an "acute sudden hearing loss" that followed a cold post 3 weeks. She woke up and thought her ear was plugged and had the dizziness you describe. After 5 days we saw an ENT who diagnosed "sudden hearing loss", which they believe is caused by inner ear nerve death. She underwent emergency treatment at a university hospital but never regained much of her hearing though enough to use a hearing aid. The most important point here is that if your nerve is affected, run to a top university to get treatment as the soonest you get treatment, the more effective it is. My daughter was about 13-14 days post hearing loss and that was the maximum allowed to even begin treatment. Look up this disorder to make sure you're evaluated for it. I believe a basic hearing test will detect it based on our experience.
