Jon woke up and knew something wasn’t quite right. His left ear seemed muffled, and he heard weird, static-like pops. On his way to work, he called in to see what time his first patient was scheduled. Holding his phone to his left ear like always, he realized his hearing was very poor on that side and switched to the right ear. Once he arrived at work, he asked a coworker, an Audiologist, to check his hearing. The doctor tested him and compared the audiogram to one Jon had done a couple months ago. As expected, he showed a sudden hearing loss in his left ear.
