Not able to hear properly

I am not able to hear properly from my left ear. I have done all the tests no waxing in ear, sugar and BP normal no tumor in brain. Still I'm unable to hear almost by 50% from left ear. Kindly please suggest what might be reason and precautions to be taken. Will this cause a permenant loss of hearing ??

A one sided hearing impairment at your age might be tube dysfunction but a little unlikely. A more common cause would be a nerve weakness, maybe due to noise trauma. As my colleague has suggested an audiometry should be done to confirm.

You need to meet a good ENT Specialist to rule out Eustachian Tube dysfunction as a cause of the Hearing loss. Get a pure tone audiometry with impedance audiometry which will confirm my diagnosis. If so, it is easily treated with simple medication!
