About 3 weeks ago, I had a sudden loss of hearing in my right ear. The only symptoms of anything I had before that was a swelling under my tongue on the same side that went away in one day. I am not dizzy.My doctor has done lots of lab work and says I have no bacterial infection and I have no ear infection. Starting this morning, I have transient facial numbness. I am a 61 year old female. My concern is abscess on the brain, meningitis or an acoustic neuroma. Any thoughts? I get an MRI tomorrow.
