13 days ago I experienced ISSHL (non-contrast MRI/blood work negative). It took 72 hours to receive treatment. I was put on oral corticosteroids (10 days at 60mg/day) and antivirals (5 days at 3g/day). 7 days ago I began intratympanic steroid injections and hyperbolic oxygen treatment (twice a week). The treatment has not had ANY impact.
My audiogram showed that ALL of my hearing is gone in my left ear. I have some hope, but SSD does not bother me. I have been doing a great job at blocking out the tinnitus - so I am not bothered by this either (even though it is present in my left ear).
Before the incident I was a super healthy and extremely active person; however, now I am immobile because of the constant dizziness and vertigo. I know that this condition varies case by case, but I thought asking someone experience/expertise may be the best place to seek answers.
a)When can I expect the dizziness and vertigo to dissipate? (I want to start hiking, biking, and weight training again)
b) I have a fear of losing the hearing in my right ear. There is less than a 3% chance, but if this happens, when would this occur? (Ie.a few days, weeks, years after?..)
c) Any other advice?
Thanks for all your help and comments.
