Sudden hearing loss on right side ( loss ‘profouind’). MRI clear. Being treated with steroid injections to ear drum but no improvement.
Saw ENT today and he has no idea at this point - virus? ear ‘stroke’ so I started my own research and found that a medication that I have recently started taking has listed as one of its lesser known side effects ‘hearing loss’. Medication is Norvasc ( generic) and there are a number of side effects - first two months the effects were minor but suddenly I started having major problems including but not limited to the profound sudden hearing loss. I stopped the Norvasc and the tinnitus has improved slightly and the other side effects are vastly improved but the ‘deafness’ remains. I shall see my MDs tromorrow and give them this information. Has anyone out there had similar problems - and - does it go away???
At this point I’m frustrated, angry, and also SSD
