Vestibular Dysfunction and Hearing Loss

Re: vestibular dysfunction and hearing loss
Its been a few years, and time can be a great revealer!

Otosclerosis. I’ve become profoundly deaf at some frequencies, and am awaiting my first stapedectomy (joint replacement of the stapes). In the meantime, my c-spine (neck) has been caged and plated (titanium rebuild) which has helped remarkably with the vertigo-dizziness-balance problems.

Both otosclerosis and the neck highlight issues with bone quality and formation…spongiosis followed by sclerosis.

The PsA has been in remission for a while now, and no nsaids for me as they can disturb bone formation.

Wishing all the best throughout the ups and downs of managing life and chronic pain and illness,
