      So... I had mild SSHL last winter a couple of days after 2 short flights. Got intratympanic dexamethasone only 2 months later (the first few ENTs prescribed random vitamins, betahistine, ginkgo etc) and it did not help. Now I have two tones in that ear, and vibration-hum in the ear with no hearing loss. When the weather changes I feel not really dizzy, but a bit off.

      Anyway, If anyone has or even better had something similar or is near and wants to hang out let me know.

      I'm going to spend a few weeks here looking for anything that could help me because I don't know where else to go and what to try.

      I think the intratympanic dexamethasone has to be administered before the hair cells undergo apoptosis, which is probably much sooner than 2 months.

      Sorry this has happened to you.

      Yeah. I think it's like few days to few weeks max. I will keep trying to see if I can do something. I read about your trip. For now I don't have that much money but at least someone tried.
