Depends...: on underlying cause, of which there are a plethora. Don't sit on this. Get a definitive diagnosis and find out why you have it. If it is unilateral, ie one-sided, you need inner ear & brain imaging to look for asymmetric findings & evidence of possible demyelination. If it's symmetric, you may have just listened to too much loud music. Follow advice of audiologist, otolaryngologist & neurologist.
