my age is 63 years young, for the most part I am healthy. My concern is, the last of Sept. I experienced, profound single sided deafness. I was caring for my sister, who was recovering from a very bad fall, not paying attention to myself. I thought it was an ear infection, it was not. I went to the ENT and had a hearing test, they gave me steroids, no change. I am having hot flashes and night sweats since this happened, but I am told there is no connection. It is impossible to sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time. I have constant gray noise and ringing in my deaf ear, very difficult to go back to sleep once awakened by night sweats.
