I need help. I began losing hearing in my right ear about 2 years ago. I have always had a lot of wax buildup in the winter, so I thought I was just “clogged”. After extensive cleaning, I still couldn’t hear very well. So I tried nose spray, thinking I had some sort of cold. Still no help. At this point, I went to an ENT, who said everything was fine. But since I still was having so much trouble hearing, he sent me for a CT scan. CT scan looked fine too. I went to another doctor who said that my eardrum is a little wrinkled, but that that can happen when people get a cold (I was not confident in either doctors’ assessment.) So here we are- my hearing seems to be getting worse and worse. I can still hear out of the right, but not very well. When there is excess noise or background noise, I find it impossible to distiguish what I’m supposed to be hearing from the noise (and with twin babies at home, there is no shortage of noise!) It feels like I have cotton in my ear, but I can’t hear myself any better. (You know how when you plug your ears, you can hear yourself breathing and talking really well? It’s not like that for me on the right side- I just hear nothing.) And the worst part is, I think I’m going “tone-deaf” (if that makes any sense.) I’m less an less able to distinguish pitches any more. I can still sing alone, but if anybody joins me, I can’t hear myself well enough to know if I’m singing in tune. (This is especially bothersome at Church, where my job is to sing, and I just have no idea if I’m anywhere near the right pitch (though I don’t see anybody plugging their ears, so I guess I’m doing ok for now)). Also, the hearing seems to get even worse for a time whenever I pick up something heavy. Not sure if this means anything, but I figured I’d throw it out there. Does anybody have any idea what’s happening to me? because the doctors don’t.
