going for an mri

offline hedphukkerr from mathbotton (United States) on 2012-03-20 09:01 [#02431419]

So a bit under a year ago, I lost suddenly lost partial
hearing in my right ear (40db from 45-170 hz, about).
Doctors at first said it was benign positional vertigo, then
sudden sensineural hearing loss. It's sucked, I've had to
get used to constant tinnutis and even distortion at lower
frequencies, but I've kind of come to terms with it.

I went in for my half year check, and it appears my hearing
loss has gotten worse, which shouldn't have happened. First
I had some blood tests, but they didn't show anything.

So now I'm scheduled to have an mri of my head done
tomorrow, because they think I may have a benign tumor on my
cochlear nerve. I've been waiting for this for like 2 months
now (yay american health care system!), and I feel like I've
been breaking down without even realizing it. Been fighting
tons with my gf, and I feel like it must be my fault. Altho
at the end of all it, I don't think I've even begun to
process... what, the possibilities? Blagh, I dunno.

But yeah, that's my bag.

Don't worry before you have actual results.

A friend of mine had a similar benign growth in his ear, got
it taken out, and he was fine. You'll be fine too.

hey man, imagine if they find something that is causing the
problem with your hearing!! and as fleetmouse says they take
it out and WooHoo your hearing gets better and better!!!

I had my skull operated on , i did, . lol : ) ( i hear
everyone say > this explains everything ) it wasn't bad at
all. They give me cool drugs and I floated around for weeks
afterward. it was awesome. i wanna go back. i really wish
they told me what it was.

i am sure deep down your gf knows your stressed out, i
hope you get good news.

keep us updated.

freqy : )

Juice fasting is worth checking out, it flushes out the
colon and the liver and that allows nutrients to be absorbed
far more efficiently, with no more mucus clogging the colon,
the pathways for the nutrients are opened up so the blood
becomes super healthy rich and there is great hydration too.
plus organic means reduced nasties for the body to cope
with, so much more healing can take place, worth checking
out organic juice fasting.

Jesus. I'm so sorry to hear that, man. I also have hearing
problems (in my left ear) due to Eustachian Tube

Anyway, even though my problems don't even come close, I can
definitely relate at least on some level about the tragedy
of having a sense impaired.

My only hope is that one day you will be able to have a new
bionic ear, which will be infinitely greater than this
clearly inferior human model ear.

thanks for all the support guys, it means a lot! i'm sitting
here at the office with a cd with the images next to me, i
am way too tempted to look at them and try to see if i can
figure if i can see anything, altho i'm sure i can't. my
follow up can't come soon enough, it's the not knowing
that's killing me!

They'll get that deadbeat biomass out. Did they mention
whether your hearing will recover?

im gonna look at the mri's till then.

i really really wish i could have taken a recorder in there
tho, those sounds are ddddope. i should have asked the
technician, he also had some weird minimal techno loop going
in the room the whole time, but the crazy techno lazer beamz
of the mri machine drowned it out during most of the

glad you'll live. pretty scary having a scan and waiting
like you did,

seems weird, but extra vitamins can work wonders. i was
reading that vitamins A,C, and E are good for hearing.

check this chart out each vitamin is explained and a list of
foods that have the highest concentration too.. if you click
on each food it states the amount too.
