Be seen ASAP!: Please do your self a favor and see an ENT right away. You might have sudden sensorineural hearing loss which needs high dose oral steroids and possible steroid injections. The sooner the treatment the better chance you will get your hearing back! make sure you let the ENT staff know that you lost your hearing suddenly and they usually try to get you in.

See ENT: Assuming this is a one-sided loss, here are some of a number of possible diagnoses, all of which should be evaluated by an ear, nose and throat specialist: 1) sudden sensorineural hearing loss - need to see ENT asap; 2) cochlear-variant meniere's disease (symptoms usually fluctuate); 3) vestibular schwannoma (aka acoustic neuroma).

Peristomal wound: When i see a patient who has difficulties with peristomal wound or pain, i generally try to ascertain cause. Usually, if there is no underlying pathology, the skin is irritated by the adhesive. Using a hydrocolloid dressing beneath the adhesive may reduce the difficulties.

Consider tumor.: Weight loss and anemia can contribute to both fatigue and dizzyness. The question is is the anemia related to the pelvic pain. Hypothetically the answer is yes. Tumors of the sigmoid colon, rectum, bladder, uterus ovaries or prostate can cause anemia and the related symptoms although high on the list are colorectal cancers. See your md for possible colonoscopy and/or ct scan of the pelvis.
