Hi, I'm new here. I believe that someone will provide me with an advice about the issue that I have. I truly don't understand what has happened to my ear and how it can be cured. My hearing ability has been superbly fine until I had met an accident. Recently I met an accident and hit my ear really hard. After this, my left ear is always ringing and I can hear voices distorted, particularly in loud gatherings/situations and it has been truly getting me down. My audiologist in Nu-life hearing centre (Bowmanville) told me that it might be SSHL and recommended me to do steroid therapy. Does anyone experience the same? It would be great if you share it. What treatment did you have to gain back their your hearing? I'm really scared. I don't want to lose my hearing ability permanently.
