Had a strange thing happen in October. Had a very intense dizzy spell that just did not abate. Part of the treatment involved an antibiotic for an ear infection. There was a period when I could hear nothing through my left ear. While the infection appears to have cleared, my hearing hasn’t recovered. I can hear more than nothing, but much less than before, and oddly, at times
I will see ENT/Hearing specialists next month. While there may be hope of more restoration, I find myself fearing the worst.
And more than that, I have been feeling I haven’t been nearly grateful enough for the joy that music brings. I haven’t been grateful enough for the awareness of what happens in my environment that hearing brings.
As a side sleeper, when I sleep on my right side, I can’t hear much at all.
This is all very worrying.
