Hearing loss

Post a spell of flu, I feel that my ears are stuffed and my hearing has reduced. When I bend my neck backwards, they appear to clear out and the clarity increases. I think I have hearing loss in my left ear. Please let me know how long does a hearing test and subsequent treatment would take.

Hello..... In flu there will congestion of Eustachian tube ,Eustachian tube regulates air pressure in the middle ear. The Eustachian tube connects the middle ear with the nose and throat. So due to building up pressure you may feel blockade. Consult ent specialist.
