Yes, MS can affect your hearing. I have tinnitus...otherwise known as "ringing in the ears" which is continuous and varies in loudness from almost deafening to a dull roar. The numbness can last for "awhile" to "forever". I've been numb from mid-torso to toes for 24 years, now. (I just "graduated" from 23 years with MS to 24, on December 15. Lucky me.)
It could be a relapse...or just a temporary intensity of symptoms. I hope it passes soon.
