"You mentioned in the other thread that you have a mixed low frequency conductive and high frequency sensorineural loss. This might be down to tympanic membrane issue, ossicular chain deformity or could be some form of stapes fixation or just two other underlying coincident conditions."
I’m the one with the low frequency conductive loss and “possible” sensorineural hearing loss in the high frequencies. Three of the four audiograms I’ve had done in the last four months showed conductive loss in my “bad” ear; one audiogram showed what my new audiologist believes is a conductive loss in the lower frequencies and a sensorineural loss in the higher frequencies. All four audiograms have shown the Carharts Notch. The ENT I saw is quite convinced that, at least in my “bad” ear, it is otosclerosis. He advised me that otosclerosis can also have a sensorineural component at the same time as a conductive component, and certainly many of the articles I’ve read suggest the same thing. That said, I’m waiting on a CT scan, and have been referred to two neuro-otologists who will hopefully be able to give me an “official” diagnosis and point me in the right direction as to whether or not there is any treatment available for my condition.
Becki…Sorry to hijack your thread. I just wanted to address what Um bongo had said:)
