These are the definitions for those terms:
The third hearing test I had at the specialists office showed my hearing was down about 5 more clicks in every single area and that includes my lower hearing which is currently normal. This is what prompted the 1 month re-check and the MRI order.
My next hearing test will be in about 2 weeks. I am anxious to see if the hearing degradation has slowed, increased or stabilized. I am hoping for the latter.
