Hi All -
Has this ever happened to any of you? When I was first diagnosed with an AN, I was also told I had lost 20% of my speech discrimination. A few weeks ago i had a big drop in my hearing and it was down to 50%. A week later it went down another 26%. The last few days when I first wake up, my ear has only a slight sensation of pressure, and although my hearing is not great, there is a definiite improvement. In the end of May my doctor put me on a two week tapering doese of prednisone, which had no immediate effect. I have asked him, but he hasn't yet answered this question, could this be a belated reaction to the prednisone? Is there a possibility it will continue to improve? Has anyone had this happen to them? I am going for another audiogram today. So far, I think my ear and hearing are the same as they have been for the last few days. I guess this will tell the story. Wish me luck.
