Friday before last my Husband and I got up in the morning, and about an hour later Mike said that his left ear was ringing. It continued into the afternoon so he called the Dr. and she told him if it didn't stop for him to go to the E.R. or to go in and see her on Monday morning.
Well the ringing stopped and he had alot of pressure in his left ear so he thought that he had a Sinus Infection with fluid on his ear, which is what I also figured.
So on Tuesday he went to the Dr. and she found no fluids on his ear or Sinus Infection, so she sent him to a Ear,Nose,& Throat Specialist he check him out and did a hearing test. In which he failed the test on his left ear, He found out that he had caught a virus somewhere and it attacked his Inner Ear, and left him Totally Deaf in the left ear.
Mike is so besides himself, and I just wish I could do something for him, but know that all I can do is be here for him. Now if he gets a twinge in his other ear, he thinks the worst. He goes back to the ENT on Friday.
Just wanted to let you know about a different type of virus is out there to be causious about.
