An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer.

I've been diagnosed with perforated timpanim? In my ears. It causes an echo. What can I do & is it serious?

Broken eardrum: I believe you are referring to a perforated tympanic membrane (eardrum). This can be caused by a direct injury to the ear (something punctures the eardrum). It can be caused by an ear infection. It can also be caused by pressure, as in diving. I'm not a specialist, but I think these generally heal on their own. An ear, nose, and throat specialist is who it see if you have concerns. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Ruptured ear drum no more draining, no more itchyness, just a echo here and there. Is it suppose to pop sometime?

Ruptured ear drum no more draining, no more itchyness, just a echo here and there. Is it suppose to pop sometime?

Not until healed: The popping heard when yawning or nose blowing is the ear drum moving. If there is a hole the air forced up through the eustachian tube escapes out the hole so can't push the drum so no pop is heard. It won't pop until drum healed. Echo is from sound hitting the drum and middle ear structures at roughly the same time. ...Read more

I took allegra (fexofenadine) for allergies a week ago and now have an echo in my ear for 7 days now. Is this serious or an I learn to live with it?

I took allegra (fexofenadine) for allergies a week ago and now have an echo in my ear for 7 days now. Is this serious or an I learn to live with it?

Ear fluid?: A 45 yo female who took Allegra (fexofenadine) for allergies, now with echo in ear. I doubt the echo is related to the Allegra (fexofenadine). However, the echo could be due to fluid in the ear, or an ear infection, or an eardrum perforation. Sometimes allergies can cause the feeling of clogged ears. It would be prudent to be checked out by your PCP or an ENT physician for further evaluation and full ear examination. ...Read more
