Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

You should exclude a a ruptured tympanic membrane immediately which would need repair, if detected.
This is the most reason for poor hearing in your left ear. You should also try to xclude any fracture in the "temporal bone" by the ear. A fracture is this area can cause headache as well as problems with hearing.

So, please go to the ER and get a CT scan of the"head and the left mastoid region". You should also see the primary care doctor.
Take paracetamol or ibuprofen (? brand name in your country) for the headache.

okay thanks, XXXXX XXXXX definitely rate you excellent after this question. is there a possibility that my hearing has been damaged permanently ?
Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 2 years ago.
I do not think so . The hearing usually recovers once the cause for it is treated. The cause can be identified by an Ear, nose and Throat consultant who will examine the ear followed by a CT scan as mentioned earlier.
