Long story short, I’m dealing with a combo of TMJ issues and a viral ear infection. My ENT says to just wait it out with advil. It’s been 12 days and my right ear still feels like crap, I still have seriously impaired hearing above 8kHz, and I am VERY CONCERNED. Because the standard hearing test I had only went up to 8k the doc considers my hearing to be "completely normal" even though I have a dip at 8k, and above that my hearing drops off a cliff. As a musician and music lover I’m losing it. Have any of you dealt with an ear infection that lasted this long? Did you have hearing loss that fixed itself? I’m sitting here feeling completely defeated and no one else is concerned.
