Possibly: If ear wax has been pushed against the ear drum, many symptoms related to the ear may occur. If impacted wax is the problem, that can cause hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing). In general, wax is a healthy coating of the ear and is modified sweat. Wax has antibacterial properties and lubricates the ear canal skin. The ear cleans itself. If excessive, it should be cleaned out by a specialist. ...Read more
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
Smaller, customized: New behind-the-ears hearing aids are popular and easy to use. For a child, a consideration is how likely the child is to damage or lose a hearing aid, and how well the child can put it on, take it off, and use the features. The behind-the-ear portion is small now, and comes in various colors. Some have several frequencies to adjust like an mp3 or stereo. Some have bluetooth to connect a cellphone. ...Read more

Inner Ear: Loud noise damages the microscopic hair cells in the inner ear. This damage manifests itself as tinnitus. Only an extremely loud, concussive blast ( like a bomb exploding) can rupture an eardrum. I've noticed you are asking many, many questions on tinnitus and hearing loss. You really need to see an ear specialist to examine your ears and do a hearing test. ...Read more
I was born w/scar tissue in my ears causing hearing loss.would cochlear implants help at all with hearing?
Tinnitus in left ear decided to use ear drops. 9 days later ear full of wax after pulling out the goo , still ringing ear still blocked :-( syringe?
Syringe may help: They sell cleaning kits for ears in the pharmacies which have large syringes. I always advise to use warm soapy water for these types of cleanings. At the same time, I advise caution when doing anything with the ear canal & if you're not sure of what you are doing or if things are going the right way then you should stop and see your doctor. Much better that than to cause any sort of complication. ...Read more

I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?
My vote is for...: Hearing aids with no sign language is better than sign language with no hearing aids. With hearing aids, one can hear broadcasts, such as music or voice, and one can hear what other people say (because the vast majority of people don't know how to express themselves using sign language). Also, with hearing aids, one can hear sounds from machines (like cars) and from animals (such as barking). ...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
