Dizziness, hearing loss.....MRI, CT scan negative

Hi

My husband was jumping on a trampoline in January. Immediately after that, dizziness, fullness and hearing loss started. The hearing loss in quite severe in high pitch sounds.

The ENT started him on water pills etc..no help. He then went to the House Ear Clinic in Los Angeles. They thought maybe a tumor or fracture in his skull and ordered an MRI/CT scan.

Just got the call this morning that both were negative and they want to do a balance test. My husband was ready to either scream or cry when they called.

This is obviously not only impacting his life, but his job too.

What would a balance test find? Any other input is appreciated. Thanks

Another question. Are balance studies the same no matter where they are done or who does them?

The House Ear Clinic is quite far for us to drive, and I was wondering if my husband could just get the balance test done at the ENT he first went to. Thanks

You may want to ask your dr. about Menniers Disease, vertigo, hearing loss etc... are some of the symtoms. They did the same tests on me and finally diagnosed me with Menniers which I have had over 10 years. The intensity of the disease varies from individual to individual. Good Luck.

I would continue testing and treatment with the House Ear Clinic. They are very good, and this is especially important because they should have a lot more experience with ear problems than most ENTs.

Most balance tests consist of the ENG test, a lot of ENT's dont have this equipment.

It could very likely be Meneires or Labyrinthitis, these are differentiated by the time the dizziness, fullness and hearing loss last. The specialists at the clinic will be able to make a diagnosis based upon history of symptoms and clinical evaluation.

Hi -

Make sure to see an ENT and question something called a perilymphatic fistula. The test for this is called an ENG. He may have a hole opened up between his inner and middle ear.

Good luck!

Hi

Well, we went back to The House Ear Clinic a few weeks ago and they did the ENG. They said his results were better than normal.

They are completely baffled, cannot find anything wrong. The doctor feels it was from the trampoline jumping and will continue to get better. He has gradually starting to feel better, SLOWLY.
