I recommend doing spinal tab to check for increased intracranial pressure , also if you had a brain MRI I hope you could upload it as I suspect an old meningitis which has caused all your problems, (Increased intracranial pressure can be due to a rise in pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid)
Good Luck

these symptoms are due to peripheral neuritis.
vitamin B6 / B12 deficiency may be associated.
start on pregabalin,methycobalamin tablets with vitamin D3.
These medicines should be taken for atleast 3 months without a break.

In my opinion ,you should consider doing a pendred syndrome exclusion with a genetics specialist,as hypothyroidism is sometimes associated with hearing loss,but can be corrected with treatment of thyroid dysfunction while in penred syndrome it is not reversible..
Check also your calcium levels.

Thanks for the query..

The symptoms can be due to Peripheral Neuropathy..
As Vitamin B12 levels are normal you can get calcium , magnesium and potassium levels checked..

Consult a Neurophysician and get evaluated..
