I have crohn's,  a few years ago I started noticing my hearing loss getting worse and worse.   I now have over a 50% hearing loss in each ear.  The doctors and specialists don't know why but did say that it can be immune related because I have crohn's but also said it most likely is too late to treat it, because any infection present in the ears has to be treated immediately, but because I've had the problem for quite a while now with it steadily getting worse, they say there is nothing they can do, and recommend Hearing Aids.     Does anyone else have premature hearing loss?  It's really having an impact on my social life.

I actually suffer from hearing problems too, and I totally hear you (no pun intended) about the impact on the social life. My doctor thinks the hearing loss is due to inflammation in my Eustachian tube that reduces the ability of my ears to equalize pressure. He suggested Nazonex to try to reduce the inflammation. I gave it a couple of months, and it has helped a bit, although not 100%. I'm planning on going back to my doctor and letting him know that daily Nasonex has helped a bit but not completely with the hearing loss. Maybe that is something you could try.

Thanks. Nazonex, I've heard of it, but never paid attention, is that a nose spray or an ear spray? If a nose spray does it have a rebound effect?
