Thank you for posting your query.
I can understand your anxiety
and discomfort on account of your symptoms and lack of a clear cut diagnosis.
In your case, the most likely cause of your symptoms of deafness
is related to the ear. Common conditions to be excluded are perforation in the ear drum, Meniere's disease, etc. An ENT evaluation would help.
If ENT examination is normal, then, we need to exclude a brain problem such as tumors or infections in the cerebello-pontine angle (a part of brain from where the hearing nerve
originates). This can be done by doing an MRI brain with contrast. It should be noted that CT scan
may be normal as the problems may be too small to be picked up on the CT scan.
If MRI is also normal, then, your symptoms can be due to anxiety.
I hope it helps.
