My granddaughter has total hearing loss in one ear the cause is a mystery.
She is 16 yo now and has had it all her life as far as anyone knows.
Thing is she recently told me that the ear doesn’t feel the same as the good one, there is a kind of numbness inside and she cant feel a cotton bud inside for example.
Has anyone experienced this?
Is it a normal side effect of hearing loss?
Are the audio and sensory nerves bundled together so if it was a virus both nerves would be affected.
Any thoughts much appreciated.
