Deafness Research UK have advised that sudden hearing loss affects tens of thousands of people in the UK every year. The cause is often unknown but can vary from a blow to the head, contracting a disease like measles or a lack of blood flow. Sudden hearing loss should be treated as an emergency and the sooner treatment is sought and administered the greater the chances of reducing the hearing loss sustained. Treatment is by way of steroids and in order to try and reduce the extent of the hearing loss should be given within 72 hours.It is strongly recommended that if you experience a sudden profound hearing loss lasting for several hours, which may be associated with symptoms of dizziness, tinnitus or pressure in the ears that you see your GP or go to A & E immediately.
