Hi, I am a 40 year old female and I had a sinus infection in November 2011 with ringing ears, pressure, dizziness and on top of it all anxiety. I completed a prescription of antibiotics and took alavert for dizziness. After about a week the dizziness went away but the ringing ears persisted, at a low volume. My ears haven't been exactly right since. I have loud ringing and pressure in my right ear. Saw ENT two weeks ago and hearing test showed hearing loss in that ear. DR said it could be a virus which could take two weeks or six months plus. Another cause could be a small tumor on the ear nerves. Next appointment is Monday. I'm not having dizzyness or balance problems. Has anyone experienced an ear virus or acoustic neuroma? What was your experience?
