Hello to everyone It’s my first post here my name is Mike I’m 31 years old.
I am going trough selection for a police officer role I passed everything until last test today that was a hearing test I was shocked as I had no idea I have a hearing problem.
I received these results and was told to go and see my GP and come in for a re-test 3 weeks from now…
L: 4 0 0 10 2 3 -3

I’ve seen my GP she said that the right ear looks inflamed (I’ve had a cold sinus problem for the last 3 weeks or so ) and she prescribed me a spray to use for 7 days.
I also had a very bad episode of vertigo attack and sinusitis in 2014 had an MRI scan back then and came back normal except sinus infection.
Should I go and see an ENT in the meantime before re-taking the test? Can the hearing loss be caused by a cold,sinus infection? I also have tinnitus from time to time but it does not bother me it lasts for a couple of seconds and it’s very rare I don’t even notice it…
Thanks to everyone in advance for any tips or advice I’m still shocked as I didn’t expect this so don’t really know what to do next…
