Chronic dizziness and vestibular migraines

I am a 45 year old male with sudden idiopathic single sided deafness to my left ear and wear a Bone Anchored Hearing Aid. Because of the deafness I have chronic dizziness and with vertigo episodes. I have tried medications for vestibular suppression, but hate the side effects – makes me dopie. Due to the vertigo, I fall quite a bit due to disequilibrium. I am wondering if anyone has had surgery to either cut the vestibular nerve, labyrinthectomy or chemical labyrinthectomy?

Hi @doc3rob, Thank you posting and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

When did your sudden hearing loss happen? Do you know what caused it?

Here is a story about another patient who experienced similar and ended up with a surgical fix to her problem. https://sharing.mayoclinic.org/2018/06/20/a-noise-filled-hearing-loss-journey/
