Hi,
Due to auto sclerosis three small bones in the middle ear become sclerosed giving rise to this problem and causing conduction defect.
I think hearing aid will help.
As and when required you may take tab vertin.

I take Crestor 5mg tablets one per day and my cholesterol is at normal levels. I suffer from tinnitus and a friend has told me that this can be a side effect of taking Crestor. Is this correct and should I ask my doctor to take me off Crestor for a trial period to see if the tinnitus improves?

April 1, 2011 woke up with ear ache and went to doctor and he indicated that I had some fluid on the ear and the ear drum was bulging and red. He gave me an antibiotic. I took that for approx 2 weeks. He then gave me a steriod and I made an appointment with an ear, nose and throat specialist. He did not find any fluid but I told him it felt like by ear canal was being pinched. He gave me a hearing test and hearing was ok. He gave me some ear drops and told me to get Mucinex-D. Today is June 28 and my ear canals mainly the left ear still feels pinched or very tight. Any suggestions? thanks

After a swim 2 weeks ago, I started hearing this tinny sound in my right ear. It hear/feel it when walking/running or when sounds are loud. Normal level conversation/sounds are not an issue, but as soon as it reaches a certain pitch/level it sounds tinny (slightly distorted). Hard to explain. Saw my doctor the other day and she suggested getting a hearing testing to see if there is fluid behind the eardrum. if there was fluid, and would have thought that my normal hearing would be much more impaired. Any other ideas as to what it could be?
