Diagram Of The Ear And Its Functions
Is there anything you can do for an inner ear problem I feel car sick all the time and take Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) to be able t o function ?
Yes: You need a complex evaluation by your physician and an ENT consultation which is an Ear Nose and Throat expert. If you have chronic vestibular symptoms such as vertigo and nausea, your thyroid levels should be evaluated, full exam and rule out cardiac causes, meclizine or scopolamine are medicines that can help you, and zofran (ondansetron) for nausea.Read about these on medscape. Good luck to you. ...Read more
Ear drums are in pain and i believe it is because my eustachian tubes are not functioning properly or they are swollen. What can I do to relieve the pain?
Eustachian tube : A small tube goes from the back of your nose to your ears. = eustachian tube. When nose is plugged, tube gets blocked & gives you painful pressure in your ear(s). If pain persists, ear can become infected. If you have persistent/worsening pain, especially with fever, you should see a doc. Reduce your ear pain by treating allergies, drinking hot tea, gently blowing nose, maybe decongestant. ...Read more

I have constant headache nausea and dizziness. Ent says 25 percent loss of inner ear function. What does that mean?
Hearing loss: Presumably, the ENT doctor was reporting the results of a hearing test which demonstrated the need for a 25% increase in volume before you heard the test tones; in addition the doctor attributed the problem to an inner ear problem. Of greatest concern are the associated persistent headache, nausea and dizziness; these symptoms and the hearing loss merit a careful evaluation by your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My son bangs his head since newborn now he's almost 4 and he still bangs his head . He functions normal otherwise please help?
Temper tantrum: Most of the time children persist in head banging (or other temper tantrums) because it works for them- it gets them what they want. Stop responding to the head banging! walk away and don't give in to the behavior. When he calms down and speaks appropriately, then give him your attention (but don't give him what he wanted). When he finds out it doesn't work, he'll stop banging his head. ...Read more

Feel like could passout all day. Like head not all there. 5 months since had a pop. Use to be heavy drinker. Seem just can't function anymore.
Head injury: Yes. A head injury in a car crash is likely to be at least a concussion (in which the violent impact forces the soft brain tissue to decelerate abruptly against the skull). Concusions cause regional brain disturbances, particularly in cognitive functions associated with the brain cortex, including executive function. The type of symptoms depend on the location of brain contusion. ...Read more
