    Sudden loss of hearing
    I woke up 8 days ago with complete loss in my left ear
    Dr gave me ear drops, but they did not work. Any suggestions?

    The only suggestion I can offer is to go back to your doctor and ask to see a specialist.

    What sort of tests did your doctor do? Is this sudden loss of hearing accompanied by any other symptoms? Illness? Anything?

    You need to do a follow up with your doctor. There's really no way for us to give you an accurate diagnosis on the internet.

    Good luck.

    My sister recently experienced hearing loss in her right ear. She went to an ENT had an MRI and found a tumor that was causing the hearing loss. She had it removed and now has an implant and her hearing has been restored. Please see an ENT as soon as possible! If she hadn't been diagnosed it would have eventually turned into a brain tumor!

    I'm sorry to hear about your sister, but let's try not to scare the OP (original poster) of this thread.

    There are many things that can cause hearing loss. Some as simple as the common cold. Don't assume that this is a tumor. Could it be? Yes. Is it? Only a doctor can know for sure, which is why I recommended that the OP get checked.
