You're welcome, Jeffrey. I just realized I should probably make it clear that I'm not a hearing instrument provider, audiologist, or ENT, so what I posted above is based solely on my own personal experience and research. I'm not in any way suggesting that your diagnosis of otosclerosis is wrong, because as Seb said, most cases of otosclerosis are pretty easy to diagnose based on a properly done hearing exam with CT or MRI confirmation. My point in posting those links was simply to put it out there that there can be complicating factors that make the diagnosis more difficult. In my case, I'm glad I got second and third opinions and pushed for an MRI. The take home message is this: If you're not comfortable or confident with your diagnosis, it doesn't hurt to get a second opinion. I'm thankful I did.
