Hollow echo distortion in ear? Scared

Hello, Lissas! I'm so sorry! I have outer hair cell damage in my left cochlea and all four ENTs thought I just had regular Meniere's disease. A neurosurgeon figured this out by squirting steroids through my eardrum directly into my inner ear which fixed my hearing 100% for a few days. He also did an MRI of my head with ear contrasts to rule out a tumor. And his audiologist did a 90-minute battery of vestibular tests on my ears and eyes which ruled out everything but outer hair cell damage. I wonder if these tests would help you figure out what condition you have. I wish you the best!

The steroids only helped you for a few days? How long after the hair cell damage did you receive the injection? Do you get this hollow echo distortion now? Yes, I've had the hearing tests which came out normal. otologist had no insight for my symptoms.
