Hi Ms. Leena,

Your description suggests that you have developed a sensorineural hearing loss in one ear. Am I right? If that is the case, your doctor has done all the right tests including MRI to rule out sinister causes for unilateral hearing loss. I am afraid, as it is a nerve related loss, there are not many options apart from using external devices which could aid in hearing such as hearing aids and cochlear implant (an implant may not be needed in your case). Unfortunately, this cannot be cured with medications or any surgery to correct structures of the ear.
