Hearing Loss During Upper Respiratory Infections
I had mono went back to the doctor and she didn't see a virus anymore.I still feel dizzy with hearing loss could this be a sinus infection from mono?

Otitis media?: With those symptoms you may have an ear infection, could be viral or bacterial. Doubtful you will go deaf with a minor ear infection. See a dr.
