Nurse with Sudden Hearing Loss and Tinnitus finds balance

Bonney Meyer, RN To my wonderful HBOT family, I perceive all of you as angels. When I met you, I was going through one of the most challenging and fearful times of my life and you were a life-line. I suddenly lost my hearing, literally in one second, and quickly tumbled into despair and disability from there: severe hearing loss and tinnitus in both ears, vertigo, loss of balance, nausea, decreased mental function, and pressure on the total left side of my head that felt like concrete. I was unable to work, or be in noisy places or with groups of people due to the inability to filter sound. It was painful and disorienting to even go grocery shopping, and I was exhausted to my core. Post HBOT, the tinnitus went from 9/10 to 3/10, the pressure reduced from the whole left side of my head to an ear-plug size, the vertigo/nausea/imbalance greatly improved and I felt like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, “and I finally got a brain!” I am very grateful to have the level of functioning that I have compared to a year ago. I have tried other treatments after seeing you—HBOT is the only treatment where I showed improvement of my symptoms. I wish I had known about you as soon as I was diagnosed. I let all other doctors know this fact as well.

Love, Bonney, RN
