Getting to Know the Term ‘Ear Stroke’ Diagnosed by Kiky Saputri’s Mother-in-Law, Turns Out It Has Been Used on Many Foreign Sites!
Some time ago, President Joko Widodo highlighted the large number of Indonesian citizens who choose treatment abroad. According to Jokowi, there are more than two million people seeking treatment in Malaysia, Singapore, America, Germany and Japan.
He also admitted to being surprised, why this could happen. Even though a number of hospitals in Indonesia are no less good, including with medical equipment.
The buzz about Jokowi’s statement prompted one Indonesian comic, Kiky Saputri, to share his experience on his Twitter page.
Kiky said that at that time, her mother-in-law was diagnosed with an ear stroke because her hearing was suddenly impaired. Finally, action was taken to be injected deeply, but it never healed.
“My mother-in-law was diagnosed with ear stroke because her hearing was suddenly impaired. The internal injection made her hearing even worse,” wrote Kiky Saputri.
Not wanting this to last long, he brought her to Singapore for treatment. However, according to the medical team in Singapore it turned out to be just the flu.
“Finally went to the Singapore Hospital and was laughed at by the doctor where there was an ear stroke. It was just the flu so the binder was in the ear and now it’s healed. Hilarious right?” he continued.

Then, several outside media such as The Healthy Journal also use the term ear stroke to describe the condition of SSNHL.
