Not the case, according to the doctor its much worse on my left side,

Don't know why, seems strange to me.
I'm not sure but I developed a theory when I was working in the hearing business because I encountered your situation often.

Basically, if your left ear is very bad and your right ear bad but not AS bad, you end up having to turn your right ear toward people to hear them. This is perceived as that ear being bad, hence having to be turned to get better sound, when in fact it's the opposite.
