Bob Pacquin I'm have trouble hearing (34) RE: I'm have trouble hearing 12 Apr 04


Don--It sounds like you are having a rough time of it--hang in there. I am assuming that you are seeing the best ENT specialist that you can find in your area(if not get in there ASAP)--these problems can often be treated and resolved without any long term harm--

We have a history of fluid-related hearing problems in our family, not the same degree of seriousness as yours--but troublesome--two of the kids had recurring hearing impairment due to fluid build-up which we finally were able manage with medication, though at first the had to be drained regularly by the specialist--

This last winter, after a bad round of flu, followed by a secondary infection, hearing in my left ear was impaired by fluid build-up, and my sense of balance(shaky under the best circumstances) was so bad that I had trouble walking--it took a while, but with the specialist's care, the hearing has come back and I am able to get around again.

Nothing is quite as scary as having one of the vital senses suddenly go out on you, but good medical attention can clear a lot up, and there is a lot more therapeutic and technological help available than ever--so though it must be very discouraging, chances of a good outcome are better than ever, and we're all with you 100%--
