Concerned, can anyone help

Today I went for a check up with my audiologist and she found a dramatic downward hearing shift in my right ear. . She did tell me she is concerned to know what is happening to that nerve from my ear to my brain. She made me an appointment with the ENT and she will do another hearing test before my ENT appointment? Has anyone had this problem with a sudden shift in only one ear? What could be the cause of quite a change from one ear to another?? I have severe sensorineural hearing loss in both ears and my right one was always a pinch better than the left. For some reason now I lost the hearing in my better ear?

The only experience I have with a sudden shift in my hearing happened over the course of about a year, where I dropped about 20-30 dB in that time. My hearing loss is sensorineural, so my auditory nerve isn’t picking up sounds like it’s supposed to. Our situations are a bit different, but I definitely relate with the surprise and concern that comes with such a sudden shift from what you’re used to. Good luck with your upcoming appointments!

it could be earwax (had that happen but not too often!)

just get back to your audiologist on your appointment day and this has to be fast no waste much time before it damage the hair, i'm sure she should know better and has to make sure she get something done in time. God will touch you.
