Brief answer:
Need more information

Detailed answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Please give me some more information for your better management.
Information regarding vertigo, decreased hearing loss, hypertension, Diabetes and heaviness in the ear- whether you have or not. If you have, then describe one by one.

Go for pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry to rule out hearing loss and type of hearing loss.

Description of previous treatment taken by you.

No online pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your follow up query; and for your kind information you need to present physically for pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry.

Decreased hearing loss refers to the inability to hear things partially and can be tested by pure tone audiometry.

Heaviness in the ear means fullness in the ear.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
