Hi, my name is Rome54. I just took an MRI brain scan test today to check if I have
an acoustic neuroma. I had a bad sinus infection at end of November, 2012, that
led to an inner ear infection. My hearing in one ear-my right ear-was muffled
for about 2 months. I went to ENT Dec. 21, 2012, and took hearing test
and saw Ear doctor. He said it was an inner infection and gave me prednisone
(steroid) and Anyclovir (an anti viral). It helped some, but my right ear
was still muffled. The ear doctor had me come back JAn. 25th, 2013, and
retake hearing test. The audiologist said my right ear was a little bit worse than the first time, but the ear doctor said but it's not that bad. But he did have me go for an MRI. I had that done today, Jan. 31, 2013. / I had no dizziness-just hearing loss in right ear or muffled hearing. It seems better now. Maybe only 10 or 15 percent muffled. / As I'm anxious to know if I have AN, I wondered if anyone can tell me what they thing about my symptoms? Does it sound like I might have AN? My ear doctor said they're rare. Just wondered if anyone who has one or was diagnosed recently can tell me anything about whether my situation sounds hopeful or bad?? Thanks for listening!-Rome (54).
