I normally post in the Crohn's board - my husband has crohn's disease and takes Remicade for it. For the past 2 months, my husband has had sudden unilateral hearing loss (mild) and tinnitus. ENT has him scheduled for an MRI to rule out an acoustic neuroma. Outer and middle ear are fine. At the very beginning he had some ear fullness and very very mild vertigo, that passed within a day or two. That is the sum total of his symptoms - no vision problems, no confusion, no tingling or other motor issues, etc.
I've heard that hearing loss is an uncommon symptom in MS, and it is unlikely to be an onset symptom. I am of course, having trouble waiting until after the MRI on tuesday for the results. One other thing to mention is last year, he had allergies, and had a lot of congestion, and also had tinnitus and vertigo, and it just resolved itself.
What do you think? I know this _could_ be MS, but do you think it's likely? I hope not, and I guess I'm looking for some reassurance that there is lots of things it can be, and very unlikely to be MS.
