      Hi All,

      A quick question. I had a hearing test on Monday and then another on yesterday (my ear was all muffled and GP was concerned about hearing).
      From one test to the other, my left ear hearing dropped from perfect to a 20db loss at 7k or so.
      I have an appointment with the ENT tomorrow, and was wondering if this might be the cause of the tinnitus I've suddenly got in my left ear.
      Would it be worthwhile going on prednisone for this? GP has suggested 25mg for 4 days cutting in half every 4 days.
      Not sure on this dose either or whether this will do any good on a small hearing loss as technically it's still within normal range.
      Any advice would be appreciated.
