Constant Ear Infections! Those days you turkey cant think straight, and worse, you are aware you can't...you just don't understand why much less be able to explain why to anyone else. The faint chomping sounds inside your head that accompanied your symptoms!! The gross hearing loss. The bleeding ears. The fluid that would run down your neck in your sleep and appear to leave a burn on your skin where it had drained. The fact your head hurts but it's not a headache at all. The depression from constinualky dealing with the symptoms!!

I would say severe hearing loss.

Nausea, dizziness, vertigo, hearing loss and not being able to get water in my ear. Hearing loss and the vertigo would be the first I'd want to get rid of.

My Cholesteatoma ate through to my brain, resulting in cadaver brain membrane being grafted on my brain. Then a complete ear reconstruction.
The worst thing to me is headaches, hearing loss, dizziness, ear pain.

Chronic infections (15 years, until the canal wall was taken down, C-toma #2, surgery #3). Clogged ear. Ear pain. Hearing loss. My 1st C-toma growing on my 5th cranial facial nerve; it took 5 hours to remove; it took nearly 2 years to get a DX, my face would go to sleep (similar to your foot going to sleep). Nobody other than others suffering w/C-toma who understand.

Hearing loss and vertigo are two symptoms or the results of the damage this disease can cause. Depending on the severity this can be very difficult to live with.
