    Total bilateral hearing loss since 2008

    I am now totally deaf. Not really sure exactly why. I didn't have health insurance after I lost my hearing. I went out sick one day feeling dizzy and my ears felt fuzzy. Deafness came and became total after eight months. The company I worked for fired me thinking I was faking. Yeah. Too much drama. Lost insurance, etc. anyhow... I was just wondering if there's anyone else here who suffered massive sensioneural hearing loss. I've had my head in the sand and full-on depression ever since and pretty much live in a little box. I'm just starting to think about really living again. I suffer now from PTSD, tinnitus that never fades away and depression.

    Thanks for "listening."
    Oodles of Love,

    What happened to you also happened to a man on a tinnitus support website that I visit. He went totally deaf in one ear after dinner one evening. I think Meniere's was suggested. When this first happened to you had you been sick with any flu like symptoms before? Meningitis and mumps can cause deafness. There probably are other viruses that can cause it as well that I don't know about. I had a myringotomy six months ago and have had tinnitus ever since in that ear. If you ever need to write to someone, I'm here.
