Brief Answer:
Sudden hearing loss

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
There can be many reasons for sudden hearing loss like any trauma or injury, any loud noise exposure? Any abrupt change in blood pressure?
Any history of nasal congestion or throat infection in the recent past?
You should check the batteries for the hearing aid you have been using.
Please tell me if you have any of the above stated symptoms.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Brief Answer:
Sudden hearing loss

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
It is probably age related hearing loss as you have none of the stated symptoms. Please send me the audiometry report so that I can suggest you better.
Age related hearing loss may manifest anytime after 55 years of age. It has to be corrected by hearing aids only.
I hope my advise proves useful for you.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
