A 43-year-old female asked about a 17-year-old female:
If someone's ears (softer sounds, muffled sounds, difficulty hearing certain notes, ringing, constant pain, fullness, headaches, dizziness, slight itch) and slight fever has been getting worse hourly for multiple days, should they use expensive 911?

Do not use 911 for these issues. Please see an ENT or audiologist for an evaluation.
