Watch and Wait with Prendisone
« on: January 22, 2021, 12:08:05 pm »
I was recently diagnosed in the last month with a 1.2 x .7 AN in the last 5 weeks.
It is within the IAC and 1-2 mm from the cochlear.
I woke up with 40-60% hearing loss. I was suddenly prescribed 2 weeks of steroids and my hearing returned back to normal.
I have no other symptoms other than mild tinnitus.

Has anyone had a similar experience?
If so, for how long did you maintain your hearing maintain?
Did you try another dose? and if so, did it work again?
What treatment did you decide?

Thank you.

I hadn't lost my hearing, but was having vertigo and awful issues with my balance.  I tried one round of Prednisone and it really helped.  I haven't had a reason to need it again yet, but I thought it might help you to know it worked for someone else with a different issue.
