My ears hurt and can't hear properly its not wax. I also don't have feeling of my teeth or proper body sensations as feeling myself, body feels weak?

SEE A DOCTOR!!: Your combination of symptoms is a bit alarming. Hearing deficit, numb teeth, and abnormal body sensations all suggest some form of neurological issue, most likely in the central nervous system (brain) as both hearing and teeth nerves originate in the cranium (skull/head/brain). You should see a physician asap and be evaluated. Good luck! ...Read more

Crackling on swallowing is normal. The presence of normal hearing strongly indicates no pathology in the external or middle ear. ...Read more

Past few days my ear hurts very bad & my hearing is muffled in the ear I've tryd 2 clean it but nothin comes out I use sweet oil but it won't go down??

Maybe External Otiti: If your ear hurts when you manipulate your ear, it is probably external otitis--i.e., infection of the external ear canal, usually caused by a scratch while cleaning. If so, you may be able to treat it at home by instilling a 50:50 solution of alcohol and vinegar. The acetic acid in the vinegar kills the bacteria and the alcohol will keep the ear dry. ...Read more

How can I clean my ears that is not hearing well after water inside? My left ear hurts and my right ear is not hearing well about 4 months.

May be simple: If the problem is truly water in the outer canal, a simple 1:1 solution of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol into the canal can help to promote drying and prevent infection ("swimmers ear"). However, this duration makes wax plugging, middle ear fluid, or other causes more likely; you should have the ears checked out. ...Read more

When I speak/yawn my right ear hurts a bit, hearing is kinda not full also I had cold for 5-8 days. It kinda started after shower, qtip shows no wax?

Eustachian tube issu: Yawning straightens out the canal between your middle ear & back of the throat. This often allows air movement back/forth. You likely have some transient swelling in that tube that prevents it from remaining open at rest. It normally allows moisture from your middle ear to drain into your throat & air to enter the space. If blocked, moisture can build and vacuum may pull in the drum. It will pass. ...Read more

Left ear hurts when swallowing or burping after itry to clean my left ear. And I can hear my heartbeat. Any fix?

Ear wax impaction: You have likely pushed ear wax deep into the ear canal and up against the eardrum. When you swallow or burp and create a pressure gradient through the middle ear cavity, the eardrum typically moves to accommodate the change, unless something is preventing it from effectively doing so.
Best fix? See your primary doc to check what is going on in your ear. Please no more using q-tips to "clean" ears. ...Read more
