So I’ve had troubling with my ears & sinuses forever. I started seeing and ENT March 2021 & had an adenoidectomy in June which I figured would help some ear problems. Here we are January 22 & it really hasn’t. My doctor is stumped. The hearing loss didn’t show on the hearing screen but I absolutely cannot hear as well out of my left ear. I’ve been struggling with dizziness and fullness in my ear. The doc did a 2nd myringotomy (hole in ear drum) a few weeks ago then I had a CT scan to look for abnormalities. She said there’s a fluid buildup in my ear but can’t see it from the outside so I made need to see an ear surgeon. Has anyone experienced anything like this? What has worked for you with hearing loss that doesn’t show on a hearing test? Thanks 💕

      Exactly what happened to me with Meniere’s Disease. It’s all the same symptoms. Bring it up and see what they think, it’s not curable but can be helped with meds! Best of luck!

      No real history of ear infections. Maybe 2 or 3 as an adult and none that I can remember as a child. I will ask my doctor about meniere’s when I go back in a few weeks. Thank you for the input!!

      Hi I'm so sorry I cant help much my hearing loss is very different. I would think a hearing aid would help though. Dizziness is definitely a fluid thing though. Do you have a history of ear infections?
