My hearing appointment was yesterday. They did some tests to see if I had an inner ear problem. They tried to make me dizzy in multiple ways, but none of it worked. The doctor thinks that's a separate issue and that I'm just getting dizzy when I stand up because of poor blood circulation.
He also says that I have hearing loss in my right ear, but not really significant in my left ear. So they're ordering a hearing aid for my right ear only. That should arrive in the next week or two. I'm just glad to know that there really is a problem, I'm not just imagining it or not paying attention well enough. I was wondering how it was possible that sometimes I could hear people and sometimes I couldn't. I'm guessing now that it just depends on whether they were talking on my left or right side.
