This is Dr. David
that is good you are seeing an ENT doctor on wednesday.
you could have had a temporar viral infection causing labrynthitis which can cause hearing loss and dizziness.
the steroid therapy is to help decrease inflammation to hopefully calm down the labrynthitis.
usually they are caused by viral infections which usually resolve on their own.
so hopefully your symptoms will get better in 2-5 days or so.
the hearing should not be permanent loss.
you can try using tylenol or advil to see if these help as well.
you can use dramamine or antivert or meclizine for the dizzy symptoms.
let me know if you have questions.
