Glad to hear it got better for the most part. I would agree that after all these years doctors still seem "baffled" by ear issues. One of the worst is tinnutis. They all seem to just tell you to "learn to live with it" which is not really a good answer.
It kinda reminds me of a car mechanic who can't find the reason for a noise your car makes and just tells you "that must just be the way your car sounds" even when it is a new sound.
As you said, very disappointing.
