Last year i was listening to the radion through earphones, and subsequently i slept with earphones sticked in my ears for almost 3Hours, when i wake up, both my ears were little bit dump, until the right ear open up, but the left ear still not opened up even today. Its been 5 months now. i once attended an ENT, who refered me to an audiologist to take test. The audiologist confirmed that my left ear is impaired highly, and sent me back to the ENT who checked me and said to me he suspect that i might have a nerve problem. He mentioned that if its a nerve problem, there is little he can do, unless he prescribed me hearing aid. i just want to ask if there is no way that if my nerve is affected i can hear again, and can the earphones cause the damage on the nerve. Can you please advice me, and recommend any specialist i can attend to sort out my problem I am in Pretoria.
