Welcome, Moselle, to the ANA forums, and thank you for making your first post!!!
Like you, I was told for the longest time by my ENT that a virus caused my sudden hearing loss until he got the MRI back, and even then he said it was a good thing I had that virus because it caused me to have an MRI which shows a vestibular schwannoma. He never even considered that my hearing loss was from the VS, not a virus. He kept ordering prescriptions for virus medications which did nothing for me. But I had most of the vestibular schwannoma symptoms. I soon realized that I needed to listen to doctors who knew what they were talking about. And that is why I found the ANA so valuable. I probably watched 30 hours of videos in my first month after diagnosis.
Make sure, Moselle, that the doctors you consult with are experienced with vestibular schwannomas (more commonly called, acoustic neuromas). Don't go to someone who only treats one or two a year. Make sure you contact the ones who treat them all the time. They are the ones with the most experience, and they know what they are talking about. Some will even give free Zoom consultations. The Forums can give recommendations on who might be good in your area.
Thanks again for your first post, and please stay in touch as we want to support you in your journey!
