| | Seasonal hearing loss in one ear
I have a question for people who might have similar experiences ): I've had tinnitus once in a while all through my life, but for the past few years around March to May every year, my left ear would pretty much go deaf a little (sometimes a lot) to the point where I have trouble hearing or some pitches get distorted. Sometimes I experience vertigo and a bit of nausea to go along with it when the deafness is bad. I've gone to the doctor a few times and she didn't diagnose anything wrong and my ears are clean. I've been to a hearing specialist too, but because of the way specialist appointments are made here, by the time I get to my appointment the problem would've gone away already. My dad has Menieres so that's what the specialist suspects too but he can't make a diagnosis without being able to prove my problem.
I've done my research as much as possible to figure out myself what is causing this but to no avail. I've moved a few times across the years but it seems to come back around this time of the year, so it couldn't be allergy within the house (I live in an apartment now so I don't think there is allergens around here either). I keep my ears clean but not overfrequently. I haven't been sick for a long time, I don't take any medication/alcohol/tobacco so I can't think of anything that could be a trigger. I do get nauseated relatively easily (I can feel a bit of it after working out doing crunches) so I think it could have something to do with my inner ear, but I can't think of a reason why this time of the year is the time it happens.
I want to ask if anyone has similar problems or know people who have similar problems, what your problem is like, and if you have any suggestions or revelations yourself regarding this problem?
Thank you very much and have a good day (:
