I have seen my own doctor and then was referred to mr Khan consultant ENT, raigmore hospital, highlands. each visit is roughly every 3 months and seem to be getting nowhere fast. concerned that hearing is lost permanently.

OK Murray. You need to see a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist--for treatment. Cervicocranial manipulations and other treatments can work for your problem and get rid of the noise and the balance problems. Your hearing should also improve with this kind of therapy
