Can't Hear Out Of One Ear And It Hurts
I can hear a little better out of my left ear. Is it normal to hear better out of one ear like this?
Abnormal: It's not normal to have diminished hearing in one ear compared to the other. Various potential causes are wax buildup, nerve damage, bone conduction disorder, perforated ear drum or scarring from old middle ear infections. An otolaryngologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

My ear feels clogged I do have some pain, then when i open and close my mouth everyone can hear the the crackling sound and it blowing my nose dose not help also I do not have water in it. Could it be an ear infection?
This : This could be eustachian tube disorder, but the fact that others can hear the crackling makes me think that another option could be your jaw joint--the temporo-mandibular joint (tmj). Disorders and pain in that area is often referred to the ears with multiple symptoms: pain, fullness, popping...The pain can radiate to the head and cause headaches, or down into the neck and throat areas. It is the most common cause of ear pain when the ear looks normal to a doctor. This can be evaluated by your primary care doctor or a dental surgeon. Most common treatment is NSAID medications and physical therapy--rarely surgery is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My right ear feels like it has water in it all the time. Doesn't hurt but want to know what i can do to fix it. I tried ear drops and clean my ears?
TMD: Grinding of the teeth or bruxism is an unconscious habit and represents oral tensional habits. However, this type of clenching rarely leads to an actual hearing loss, but more likely leads to a feeling of plugging or pressure in the ear. I would strongly recommend an ENT visit for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

? treated ?: A middle ear infection is can reduce hearing in the affected ear by 40-50% for a period of weeks.It can also cause significant pain. Ibuprofen in appropriate doses can help the pain.Some have success with a heating pad applied to the head on the affected side.

Is vertigo or dementia a possible cause of my not being able to hear out of my left ear? I can't hear out of my right ear as if i were descending on a flight to land but my ear never pops so the hearing hasn't come back
Hello. : Hello. You may have some dysfunction of your eustacian tube (that tube that connects the inside of the ear with the throat). This could be causing the sense of pressure in your ear and the reduction in hearing. Vertigo is more like a sense that things are spinning around you - or sometimes that things seem tilted. There is a disease in which a person can have episodes of vertigo with intermittent hearing loss. You might want to try an oral decongestant. Afrin nasal spray can be helpful but must not be overused. It should not be used more than twice a day for 3 to 5 days (it only works for me for about 48 hours). As for dementia, i don't see how that would fit in with ear pressure with decreased hearing. Hope this resolves quickly. If the problem becomes worse or is not resolving, get in touch with your doctor. ...Read more
I have a viral ear infection with fluid build up. I can't hear out of my right ear and it feels like it might burst! anyway to relieve this pain?
Yes: Decongestants can be helpful to dry up some of the fluid production. Oral pain medication can be helpful to relieve the pain such as Tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin. Nasal sprays such as Flonase or nasocort can help with the congestion in your nose to help relieve pressure in the ear since the nasal and ear passages are all connected. ...Read more

I just put hydrogen peroxide in my ear because its clogged its popping doesn't hurt but how can I get it to drain all the way? It feels full
Fluid in ear: As long as there is no problem with the eardrum, you can try using a hair dryer held at arm's length pointed at the ear to evaporate the fluid. Or you can try a couple drops of isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) after the peroxide, then air drying. Otherwise, a visit to the ENT doctor may be in order- he/she has the equipment needed for further suctioning without causing harm to the eardrum. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So i had water stuck in my ear and i out hydrogen peroxide in it to take the water out and it worked but now my ear hurts, what should I do?
Poor choice: Hydrogen peroxide turns into water after the bubbles release oxygen. What you have done is provide an extra source of moisture that the canal likely absorbed leading to cracks in the skin. Serum oozes out & gets infected. Time to go see your doc or urgent care so this swimmers ear equivalent can be treated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why is it every time my sinuses get cloged my ear hurts and when i cough the back of my head hurts? What can I do to alliveate the ear pain/pressure?
Several causes: The ear fullness is either referred from the maxillary sinuses, inflammation of the nasopharynx from the drainage or infection, or swelling of the eustachian tubes. The headache is either from transient blood pressure increases during the cough causing swelling of the sinus linings or temporary distension of the veins inside the skull which are very sensitive (cough headache). ...Read more
