From this study (1 month ago):
An MRI shows ear canal as normal and no growths. Further testing for MS shows "some" lesions on the brain but no MS in spinal cord and MS eye test showed no evidence of MS. Hearing test for sudden(overnight) hearing loss shows high frequency hearing loss x 6 weeks ago. Prednisone via pills and IV treatment provided no relief. Also, Intratympanic steroid treatment provided no relief.

I'm also on doxycycline, so I don't know which may cause it.
