I’ve got this weird left ear since about 10 days ago. I’ve heard all music sound weirdly. Especially, sound of like a piano, a music box, a time tone or an electric sound from my cell. And I feel a slight dizziness sometimes and kids voice echos in my head.
You may have the same sensation when you’re exhausted, so I thought I should take a rest MORE ( I think I take enough!) and it would be fine eventually. So I didn’t see the doctor immediately. Bad choice!
Finally, I went to see the doctor and was diagnosed as “a sudden deafness” which really needs quick treatments ASAP, otherwise you could not expect recovering. The ASAP means “within a week” in this case, he said. I spent for 9 days with wondering I should see the doctor or not. The doctor said it was difficult to cure becuase it had passed days, but he would try everything he could. Then he put a long tube from my nose and turned its angle to my left ear. ( I felt it! ) and then blow an air jet. That’s it! I thought it’s almost too easy for a hearing loss? Anyway, I felt Wow! when the air came out from my left ear! I knew it would come out but be amazed a bit. And I got pills like a dizziness killer, a steroid, and two kinds of pills that make blood flow smoothly.
I checked up the internet about this illness. Apparently, my doctor gave me a proper treatment so far. This is designated as one of the intractable diseases in Japan, but my case is not so severe. I can live normaly….except surrounded by weird noises.
I learned this time that you can’t take your body for granted. I had never imagined that even a BGM in a waiting room of a hospital that might annoy someone’s ear. Thank Buddha, I CAN hear my kids voice. It happens to me not to them. This idea makes me really easy!
