pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

guys, can anyone recommend a good ENT specialist in Basel/Zurich? I am in my second trimester and for some strange reason m losing my hearing in my right ear. I am going to the HNO in Universitatspital, but so far they havent been able to diagnose anything.Now they are asking me to get an MRI. I am really concerned and want to get a second opinion. But i dont know any good ENT specialists. Pls let me know if u know any good ones!!!

thanks!!!

Re: pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

There's a good one on Schifflände - Dr Haag-Jordan - she takes time to get an appointment and usually runs late (so take a good book), but she seems to know her stuff and speaks good English.

Dr. med. Annemarie Haag Jordan
Schifflaende 2
4051 Basel
Tel: 061 262 02 66
Fax: 061 262 02 68

Good luck.

Re: pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

Why not make an appointment with a Neurologist ?

Re: pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

I concur, it is probably hormonal. Good luck.

Just a side note, I had my nose affected, I wouldn't smell and taste, it's still on and off. Some ENTs might not know about hormonal causes, though, I would see an endocrinologist, too.

Re: pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

Thanks for updating, I really think going to an ENT first is the right choice, he can then see if there is nothing acute causing the hearingloss...best wishes!

Good to `hear` that your are fine again..
..however by the time you have had a few sleepless nights next to a squaking baby you may think that hearing loss may not have been soooo bad afterall.

Re: pregnant and losing my hearing!!!

I lost my hearing during both pregnancies. Hope tests go well and it's just one of those bizarre side effects of being pregnant...among all of the others
