Hi. I have just signed up to this site feeling a little lost and confused. A week last Monday I went to bed fine. Woke up Tuesday morning with total hearing loss in one ear and about 20% hearing in the other. Certain it would right itself I muddled through having bought some drops to clear a'blockage of wax'. This did very little but I did regain about 20% hearing in my right ear. Eventually I got to see my GP. He thought I MAY have an infection in my inner ear and gave me antibiotic drops and steroid drops. I have been using these for the past six days but no improvement in my hearing. I do not see him again for another two weeks and I am terrified that by then this loss may be permanent. Can anyone advise please.
