Hi - sorry my internet connection broke down. No, there is no ear pain. Or any other symptoms apart from his head feels very 'full'. He hears things in a very distorted way which makes it uncomfortable to listen to tv, radio etc.
Thanks. We have been given an appointment tomorrow morning at ENT Casualty. No-one so far has mentioned an MRI scan or oral steroids, but we can do that tomorrow.
Are there any other important questions we can ask the consultant? Thanks very much for your help so far. D.
Hi, - just one more question, if that's ok!
When my husband saw his GP on Monday about his loss of hearing, he was advised (as he was there) to have his annual flu jab and also a vaccination against shingles. This, I think, was a live vaccine.
He was prescribed prednisolone today at the hospital for his hearing loss, but we've read that he should not receive a live vaccine or come into contact with shingles while taking steroids.
As he has already received the vaccine, is it safe for him to take the prednisolone or not?
Many thanks for your patience!
