My 81 year old father can't hear very well at all anymore. He says it started about the time they put him on gabapentin about 2 months ago. He also had 3 falls since starting that medicine. We have wean him off of it with the help of the ER doctor but he still cannot hear unless I am standing right in front of him. I have to yell everything and he also is talking in a very low voice. he also will hauler once in awhile in pain and his ears pop and then asked me if I heard that and I always say no. I can't hear it. I have tried antihistamines and coricidin D to see if we can get it to drain, he's also had an antibiotic. I just wonder if anyone else has had this happen or if it is just part of aging. I thought it was bad before because nearly everything you asked him he would say what? After her even though he actually hurt you but he was too busy staring at the TV. no it is really bad and I have previously had his hearing tested. any suggestions are appreciated thanks.
