Sudden hearing loss and tinnititus

Posted by regina123 @regina123, Jan 8 10:50am

Hello. I recently experienced minor hearing loss and tinnitus starting on January 1, 2023. On January 4th, I lost all of my hearing in my right ear. I am eight months pregnant with twins, so being extremely pregnant and losing my hearing in my right ear have been quite uncomfortable and stressful for me. I began steroid injections on the 5th, so I’m hoping that this will help. Has anyone had any luck with steroid injections?

I'm crossing my fingers for you! Hope those steroid injections will help. Generally, to help steroids must be started within a few days of the sudden hearing loss. It sounds like you have that advantage! Do keep us posted. And good luck with your pregnancy! Sounds as if you'll be a busy lady very soon.

I strongly recommend that you protect your hearing from extreme noise. Noise induced hearing loss is very common. Some people are more susceptible to it than others. Do you use ear protection in noisy environments?


I had Cochlear Osia surgery the end of November. After 3 weeks of healing I was fitted for the processor. Although the increased level of sound is welcome, ALL sounds are accompanied by very annoying static. I even had Cochlear exchange the processor but I am still experiencing the same static. Do I need further adjustments to be worked out between my audiologist and Cochlear’s audiologist? Is static a common complaint for the Osia implant? Or is this something my brain needs to adjust to?
