ENT Specialist 's  Response
You have hearing loss whether its written conductive or sensorineural on the report.If conductive then should go by course of antibiotics for 10 days and decongestant for 3 weeks.
If sensorineural then we need to look for the cause .
whether you have dizziness or rotatory feeling , whether the hearing loss is episodic ie it comes and goes etc.
If all the diseases are ruled out by your ent specialist after investigations for ear and nerve and mri brain etc.
Then you can try hearing aid as it suppress the abnormal sounds and improve your hearing.Hearing aids are not only for improving the hearing but also for supressing abnormal sounds .
