I am in search of a doctor who can address my 28 year olddaugthers' recent hearing lose. She was assaulted and her head was used as a battering ram. We did not think anything was wrong until 8 months after the assault she lost her hearing in one ear. Many, many doctors are saying there is nothing they can do and they have said the assault had nothing to do with it. in my research I see that there is a possibilty her inner ear could have shifted causing the canal to block itself.
Would someone take a moment and send me anything to help my baby,

Hi msbusybee5,

I am sorry to hear about what your daughter is going through. Unfortunately, we do not have an expert in this community to answer questions, and even then they are not able to diagnose your daughter through the internet alone. There might be someone on this board who has had a similar experience and will chime in with some support or advice.

I know that you say many doctors have said there is nothing they can do. Have you consulted with an ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist?

You might want to post your discussion in our Ear Nose and Throat Community , where our expert, Rod Moser, PA, PhD, might be able to give you some insight. Again, he cannot diagnose your daughter.

To post, just follow the link above and click on the orange "post not" button as you did in this community.

I wish you and your daughter the best of luck, and I hope that you will keep us updated on your findings.
