Hearing loss: If your hearing has not improved after the medication, I would suggest that a work up for inflammatory hearing loss be pursued. The prednisone should work almost immediately. If your symptoms persist, I recommend seeing a rheumatologist. I would be happy to do a consult if you desire.
