Do ear crystals plug your ears up?

Do ear crystals plug your ears up?

No: There are small calcium crystals inside of the inner ear located behind the eardrum called otoliths. These crystals can become dislodged, and every time you turn your head, the crystals shift causing momentary dizziness: a condition known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. These crystals shift with movement and can clump together but do not per se "plug" up the ear canal. ...Read more

Really.......: In my opinion you need a second opinion...... Not disrespectful to the ENT but, seems like a large jump if you had no hearing problems before. The ent's are the best at evaluating and treating ear drum problems. ...Read more

CT, ENT exam, tymp test, &audiogrm normal: Cause of ear fullness & muffled hearing? Hard to hear myself singing mid-range/using facial resonators.

Eustachian tube dyfx: you are likely suffering from Eustachian tube dysfunction. The Eustachian tube lies between the middle ear space and the back of the nose. You can check this tube by holding your nose and blowing hard. Your ears should pop. This may help the fullness feeling in the ears. If it helps, do this at least 30 or 40 times a day. If your ears do not pop, you may need a nasal steroid. Good luck! ...Read more

Chronic chest,back acne, phlegm,often inner ears itch,pimples start to arise in abdomen, throat check shows lumpy round epithelial,What's the issue?

Chronic chest,back acne, phlegm,often inner ears itch,pimples start to arise in abdomen, throat check shows lumpy round epithelial,What's the issue?

Different issues: Acne rosacea, and acne vulgaris are usually caused by propionic bacteria. However there may be folliculitis resulting from inspection of the hair follicles by normal flora/bacteria on the skin, which can be secondary infection resulting from staphylococcus species. On the other hand, throat infection is usually cause by streptococcus or Staphylococcus species, which are different mechanisms. ...Read more

Ear fullness not related to inner ear disorder, ears are popped easily, doing allergy shots and taking zyrtec (cetirizine) ear pressures coming up normal. Advice?

Ear fullness not related to inner ear disorder, ears are popped easily, doing allergy shots and taking zyrtec (cetirizine) ear pressures coming up normal. Advice?

Congestion: Despite your treatment i think you are still congested in the area of the eustacian tubes. You might get better relief if you used an intranasal steroid or an antihistamine which also contains a decongestant. I would speak to your allergist. ...Read more

Do all dysplastic moles eventually turn into melanoma?

Do all dysplastic moles eventually turn into melanoma?

No, they do not: Dysplastic nevi are considered a marker for melanoma risk but not a precursor lesion. Most melanomas arise on normal skin, not in a mole. Sometimes moles do develop melanoma & they start changing, one of the things we look for when suspecting melanoma. We look for abcde asymmetry, border irregularity, color irregularity & change or evolution in melanoma. Any changing mole needs to be seen by derm. ...Read more

Mastoidectomy(sp)in06.Relief to years of painful/chronic ear pain, multiple surgeries, adenoids, tonsils etc.Puss behind eardrum now.Could need surgery?

ENT/workup: The infected material can be drained and a tube placed by your ENT surgeon. Since you have had so many ear and sinus infections, an evaluation for ciliary ( small hairs that help prevent infection by removing debris) defects can be performed by the ENT surgeon. In addition, if you have had recurrent pneumonias, a CF sweat test can be performed to rule out CF. ...Read more

Ent diagnosed fluid behind eardrum & ringing in rt. Ear. Audiogram - hearing loss. Treated w/ prednisone. No change. Also, have lupus. What now?

Ent diagnosed fluid behind eardrum & ringing in rt. Ear. Audiogram - hearing loss. Treated w/ prednisone. No change. Also, have lupus. What now?

Time: Hello, unfortunately we do not have any medical therapy at our disposal to immediately remove the fluid behind your eardrum. If your fluid has been present beyond 3 months or if your symptoms are worsening (associated dizziness, infection, worsening hearing) then a surgical procedure to insert tubes may be recommended. ...Read more

I have chronic severe ear infection w/csf leak since brain decompression for chiari malformation. Could inner ear & ear bones be malformed also?

I have chronic severe ear infection w/csf leak since brain decompression for chiari malformation. Could inner ear & ear bones be malformed also?

Unlikely: Unless your inner ear was involved in the surgery or you were born with inner ear or ear bone malformations, the inner ear and ear bones were likely unaffected from surgery. A suboccipital decompression typically does not affect the inner ear or ear bones. I would consult your otologist for a more precise answer. ...Read more

Could I have vertebral artery dissection? I have pulsating ears jaws cheeks bridge of nose between eyes, head rush w/ bend over whooshing in ears

Could I have vertebral artery dissection? I have pulsating ears jaws cheeks bridge of nose between eyes, head rush w/ bend over whooshing in ears

Unlikely: Most people with dissection of their vertebral have no symptoms because they receive circulation from their 2 carotids and other vertebral - all of which is connected in the circle of willis. Nonetheless, you should be checked for other issues like aneurysms, very severe hypertension, or simple things like a plugged eustachian tube and otitis media. ...Read more

Brain MRI "there is mild polypoid mucosal thickening in ethmoid air cells."i have headaches, vision/hearing changes, tearing up, head pressure, sinuitis?

Brain MRI "there is mild polypoid mucosal thickening in ethmoid air cells."i have headaches, vision/hearing changes, tearing up, head pressure, sinuitis?

Possible: Mri is not a sensitive tool for sinusitis. Often, the sinuses are normal when one lights up on an mri. Your symptoms are not classic for a sinus infection, and MRI is better for looking for central nervous system problems as the cause of your headache. I would ask your doctor for an antibiotic good for sinusitis and follow up with a ct scan of the sinuses for the definitive answer. ...Read more

Why can't ear fluid in the middle ear be seen with those who have inner ear disorders?

Why can't ear fluid in the middle ear be seen with those who have inner ear disorders?

Isn't there: Those with inner ear issues do not by their diagnosis, need any middle fluid to be present.Inner ear disorders reflect an attack of the ear nerve, that usually comes through the bloodstream. Someone with inner ear disease can have incidental middle ear fluid and that may be visible. ...Read more

Would collagen injection in ear lobes make your ear lobes thicker?

Would collagen injection in ear lobes make your ear lobes thicker?

Big juicy lobes: This is not a common request and certainly collagen would accomplish a temporary increase in the side of the earlobe but it may feel unnecessarily firm and would not be my first choice. If a patient made this request, i would recommend the use of hyaluronic acid fillers as the initial filler. ...Read more
