Re: SSHL Help please!
Hi lakerfan888, I wish I could say it'll go away. It might and it might not. I can tell you that I had this happen to me this past June and it was during the day. By bedtime I was dizzy, sometimes sick, lots of questions running thru my mind as to "what the heck is happening?" Once I got to a Dr. I too took steroids and motion sickness pills-they were awful and didn't seem to really help. I still have basically no hearing in the right ear and my left is good-so far. I have found it to be fairly common in my area yet quite variable in each case. My Dr. has me on zinc, 25 mgs a day. Is it doing anything? I have no idea. I've been told that because I have low thyroid (auto immune related issue) also vertigo prior to the hearing going, that it may be immune related or at least it doesn't help the circumstances. They really didn't have a concrete answer as to why it happened. I am in my 50's so age may have something to do with mine but for you in your 20's I urge you to keep asking the questions of your Dr.s There are many people that this turns around for them and some that don't. I wish you all the best and hang in there.
