Sometimes one ear will ring and I will lose my hearing for a moment. What does that mean?

In brief: Time?

If this is only for a few seconds, it is probably not a problem, it it is consistently happening and for longer than a few minuts, especially if it happens in only one ear, you should see an ENT and also have a hearing test.
Sometimes the ear just makes noises (tinnitus) but it can be a sign of previous hearing damage or hearing loss.
