I have had something very similar. I DID have a head injury
in 2006--I had to go to the er to get a few staples in my head. I cut them out myself one morning with some pliers and never went back to the doctor.
I've been able to hear my heart beat in my ear for many years (around five years--can't remember if it was before or after the head injury). Certainly before m root canal
. After a root canal, I developed bell's palsy
which has lasted for nearly a year.
My bell's palsy was just recently diagnosed when I went to the doctor because I woke up and couldn't hear out of my left ear at all. He said he thought I had a block in my Eustachian tube--gave me some drops and told me to take Pseudophedrine Hydrocloride 12 hour. I told him about my face. He said that I had BP and to see a neurologist
Could the bell's palsy be related to the sudden hearing loss? Could the onset of BP be related to something dental? The drops don't seem to be making my ear any better. I guess I'll have to go back to the doctor, but I hate waiting.
