I failed my typanometry test

I mentioned the other day I've been having some facial/pain numbness so I'm back on the medical wheel. I had a tympanometry and hearing test done this week. I'd just had a hearing test done on May 22nd so everything on that end was the same - still deaf in the left ear, still hearing fine with the right.

There is an odd little test called a tympanometry test which measures pressure in the ear and how it reacts to sound. The last time I had it done was in October and as expected the left ear was completely unresponsive and the right normal.

Well this week both were completely unresponsive.

I don't have words to explain how this makes me feel. I'm terrified this little test was just the first indicator and I will end up completely deaf.
