Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Sensorineural hearing loss can be caused due to many reasons, some of which include vitamin deficiencies, nerve problems, toxins etc. Are you having running nose, blocked ears as there can be easily treatable conditions like fluid in ear due to sinusitis etc. Are you on any medication as some drugs can cause ototoxicity though on both sides. You may need to get a CT Scan if your Doctor asks to see any nerve compression in the brain. You haven't mentioned your age. Kindly provide more information about your problem.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

I would like to know:
1.) Your Age?
2.) Gender?
3.) Since how long are you experiencing this?
4.) Did you sustain any ear Injury?
5.) Do you have Ringing sensation in your ears?

Kindly get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist as the exact cause for this has to be ruled out. He shall examine you physically and do Audiometry to know the severity of hearing loss and if necessary he/she may also suggest a CT Scan. Hearing Impairment could be due to,

1.) Otosclerosis
2.) Ear Wax Blockage
3.) Temporary hearing loss due to sudden exposure to loud noise.

All these causative factors have to be ruled out. Kindly don't worry as there seems to be nothing serious in your case. Until your Thyroid, Blood Pressure or Blood sugar is tested, they cannot be held responsible for this.

The treatment will depend upon the cause.

Wish you Good Health.
