hearing loss one side, MRI scheduled -- anyone have experience with this?
I have hearing loss on one side and my husband has PD. The concern was for an acoustic neuroma and that can press on the nerve according to the otolaryngologist that the hearing aid store referred me to. He ordered an MRI and it showed that was not the problem, just an unusual pattern of hearing loss. I hope your husband has a good result with MRI and only needs one hearing aide. Until I got the hearing aid I had no idea all that I was missing…like birds tweeting and trains whistling!
I have no hearing loss at all
but my voice is becoming lower
so I did LSVT to improve my voice
one of the main conclusion was I have to speak louder
the funny thing is that 80 % of people having Parkinson think their partner has earring deficiencies
Yes I had 85% hearing loss in my left ear, diagnosed with Meniere's Disease or Single-Sided Deafness four years ago.. Constant noise 24 hours a day, similar to tinnitus but painful. Advised there was nerve damage between ear and brain.
Purchased hearing aides that were basically computer receiver in one ear and microphone in the other $2,500. The hearing was much better but the pain was not acceptable.
Diagnosed last Nov with PD and put on Carbidopa and within 3 weeks pain was gone, hearing tremendous improvement. Hearing doctor very impressed and hearing has slowly been improving month by month. Changing taking the Carbidopa three times a day to four, as the effectiveness lessens after three hours.
Wishing all of you the best in Health and peace.
Lots of folks with PD have hearing loss in one ear. My left ear started echoing 2018. It has a constant small electrical motor sound ALL the time. Doctors said it’s Mienere’s . After my PD diagnosis in 2021 I researched PD and hearing loss and it fit my problems. I also have Central Sleep Apena- where you brain forgets to tell you to breathe. I had 30 - 60 Apena events per Hour even with using a CPAP. Since starting levodopa my events are .03 to the highest per hour of 6.
