I have lost a fair bit of hearing in my right ear - my hubby says I have been struggling for a couple of years as I was always turning the TV up! However this became much worse around Christmas last year - when I was going out and really not understanding a word people were saying - I could tell they were talking - but just couldn't understand. I then realised I had a constant fizz in that ear (like white noise - between radio stations) and to be fair had a few issues with balance and dizziness now and again. Got checked at GP's - and also Specsavers hearing test showed a marked difference between left and right ears (they wouldn't give me a hearing aid!) - so fast forward March this year I had ENT appointment - had MRI (without contrast) in May to check for acoustic neuroma - that apparently is clear - and was told I would be getting a hearing aid for my bad right ear. Has anyone had this? Did the hearing aid work? - and how long did you wait to get a hearing aid ? (I've waited at least 10 weeks now). I am supposed to be referred to neurology department on deafness front as ENT seem clueless as to why I have gone so deaf in 1 ear. I don't know if they have 'lost' me in the system somewhere as I have had no news on either front.
Sorry for the long rambling post!
