I suggest you go back to get your questions answered, as I can not give an opinion without all the information, or an examination. It seems as if you are suffering a mixed hearing loss, in which case the nerve is damaged, as well as the mechanism to get the sound TO the nerve (ie. the conductive part of the hearing).
It is a fact that viral infections are a major cause of sensori-neural hearing loss, and you can often not recall a specific illness. Whether or not correcting the middle ear component of the hearing loss will benefit you, relies on a number of factors, such as the hearing in your other ear, the possible cause in the affected ear, etc.
