Hi my name is Sue and in May, 2013 I woke up to ringing in my right ear and hearing loss. As the day progressed I had full blown vertigo with it. I didn't understand what was going on and thought once the vertigo went away so would the hearing loss and tinnitus. A little over 2 months later, still have the ringing and hearing loss. I saw an ENT immediately and have had the MRI and CT scan and was told a "virus" caused the hearing loss. I am learning to live with both but the problem I am having is short term memory loss, confusion and seem to not be able to multi-task any longer. Things at work take me double the time, I can read something but cannot really process it. Does anyone else have this with their T? If so, what can I do to try to get back to normal. I am 45, married and the mother of 3 active boys and I just can't do what I used to and it is frustrating I just want to cry.
