  1. Hearing loss (sensorineural hearing loss) is often accompanied by vestibular disorders, but not due to the fact that the auditory analyzer somehow affects the vestibular one. It's just that both analyzers are anatomically very close, and many pathological factors (trauma, infection, inner ear edema, vascular and metabolic disorders) affect them simultaneously. This is why so often auditory disorders are accompanied by vestibular dysfunction.

  2. I didn't notice this for myself. Maybe I lost it for a short time (2 weeks)? Or too suddenly (at one point)? But the sensations are very unusual (the connection with the surrounding world is weaker). We are waiting for experts.

  3. I'll sign up and wait for the expert's response, or I'll ask at uni and answer myself later. At this stage, I would say that… In principle, I did not notice any imbalance in them. Yes, they are, for example, easy to drop, one hard-of-hearing friend of mine can knock on the door if she does not notice it. They can't detect danger by sound if it's not in their field of vision, so they cross the road safely. They have well-developed vision, it compensates, thanks to it they can notice everything and avoid any situations. And so, carried away by a conversation in sign language… Even I, who can hear, can be hit by a car and crash out of the blue. 😀 I think the question is more in the attention, because violations of the vestibular apparatus I did not notice… Are vestibular disorders related to the immediate ability to hear? It always seemed to me that this is more related to the presence of head injuries * exaggerated and generalized*, diseases related to the physiological structure of the ears in principle, infections, etc. And if they have vestibular disorders… I think that then they just adapt and adapt, they live with it all the time.

    PS-I'm waiting for an expert opinion.
