I have just been told I have a middle ear effusion that isn't because of an infection. I am currently taking methotrexate, so the effusion is just being monitored for now. I know RA can cause deafness as it effects the small bones sometimes in the middle ear - my mother went deaf as a result of this process, although I think it's quite rare. Or is it??.
