Six years ago, no ED drug involvement, in the space of 15 minutes my left ear "blew up" and my hearing was pretty much killed dead.
I was told it was a sudden increase in pressure in my inner ear that killed the nerves. (An MRI showed no brain tumor.) The pressure might have come from an infection, or a burst blood vessel -- i.e. a stroke.
I understand there are some very thin, fragile, blood vessels in the area. Don't know if that's true or not, but it may be.
If so, a drug that impacts on blood flow might contribute to an ear blowing up.
Of course, the quality of science and subject specific education that goes into this speculation of mine is on a par with that which gives rise to Elvis being alive, Obama being born in Sicily, and all sorts of things.
