Question undiagnosible hearing loss - July 5th 2015, 09:31 PM

Hi

Ever since I was born ive had something called glue ear, and for the last 3 months (approx.) I have been going deaf. Basically I will get waves of excruciating pain then go deaf in one or both ears for 30 secs,1hr or anywhere in between. These are not the signs or symptoms of glue ear, so I was taken to the doctor by my mum and the doctor couldn't find anything wrong and said to �come back if it persists. My mum just doesn't want to take me back again as h come back if it persists. He has no idea what's wrong and no one seems to know so my mum wont take me back. This is really affecting my daily life and its almost as if my mother thinks im lying. Does anyone know what may be wrong with my ears or how to persuade my mum to take me back to the doctor?

Thanks

Hi, Chloe!

Experiencing pain in your ears then deafness for a certain amount of time sounds really concerning. I'm sorry but I'm not sure what may be wrong with your ears. I haven't heard of only experiencing deafness for a certain amount of time. I did a quick google search and I couldn't find anything. However, I do believe you and I can understand how it would feel scary and frustrating how they can't find anything wrong and also the fact that your mother doesn't want to take you back to the doctor though.

Your health is important and obviously, this is affecting you a lot. Why won't your mom take you back to the doctor? Is it because they didn't find out what was wrong last time or is it a different reason? Could you sit down with her when she isn't too busy and talk to her about this? Explain what's happening with you and make sure she understands how much it's affecting your daily life. Along with the fact that it's scary and painful for you and you really want to find out what's wrong.

For such a sensitive issue involving your hearing, I suggest seeing a specialist that specializes in problems involving your ears such as an otorhinolaryngologist. They specialize in ear, nose and throat. There would be a much better chance of a doctor finding out what's wrong if you see a doctor who specializes in the specific area that you're having problems in, which in your case, is the ears.

Try to keep convincing her because you never know when it could be a serious problem or not. Which is why it's important to find out for the sake of your health and hearing. I hope you can convince her to take you to the doctor, and that they find out what's causing this (and that it's nothing too serious).

Can you let us know how it goes? I wish you the best of luck. Take care!

Hey Chloe,

I am sorry but even I am not sure what might be with your ears. But pain in the ear that causes deafness for a while sounds scary. I can understand how its scary when the doctor couldn't come to a diagnosis. I'd suggest you sit with your mother and discuss this with her. If you can tell her that the problem has persisted and you are having difficulty dealing with it, I think she will agree to take you to a doctor. For sensitive issues that deal with sensory organs, its always best to visit a specialist. As Ellie said, there would be a much better chance of a specialist finding out what is wrong with your ear and treating it. Please try convincing your mother and I really hope she understands and decides to take you to a doctor.

Please let us know how it goes. Take care of yourself and all the best!

Chloe, that sounds like what had been happening to me, beginning in 2013 and the last episode was maybe a few months ago. I went to the doctor's, who ordered a CAT scan of my brain. But there was nothing wrong. I agree that it's a hearing issue, not a neurological issue.

The strange thing is, though... while you experience temporary deafness during an episode, I experience temporary hearing without assistance.

I suggest laying down and waiting until it passes. There's not much else I can suggest, closing your eyes may make it better and definitely don't move your head or concentrate too much on the episode itself or the temporary deafness. It'll make it worse, it does for me anyways.

I know this sounds like a bad thing to say, but I am glad there is someone else who experiences the same thing as me. I am here if you want a chat.
