Hearing Loud Noises In Head
Since yesterday, all the sounds I am hearing has been harsh and loud to me, my head feels a little hot also, why is that?
While I was reading, I started hearing loud screaming voices in my head. What could this be? I only had two hours of sleep last night.
Sleep deprivation: Can cause unusual symptoms including hallucinations. On the other hand, hearing voices in your head on a daily basis is a serious condition that requires medical attention particularly if the voices are telling you to hurt yourself or someone else. Seek medical attention promptly if this happens. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

After everything went black, I was hearing some loud echoing noise, like the wind was blowing into my ear. It's happen once before, but not recently.
Blacking out?: I would be most concerned about why you blacked out. If you know why it happened (too much alcohol, etc), then you know how to prevent it from happening again. What happened after you blacked out isn't that relevant. But if you don't know why you blacked out, then you need to see your family doctor to help you figure out why it could have happened. You might need to see a few specialists. ...Read more

How long can a hole in ear drum if left untreated before it can cause hearing lost? Can it make ears more sensitive esp loud noises?
A hole in the. ..: Ear drum produces hearing loss because it decreases the surface that sound can strike. Thus the larger the hole the more loss. This loss can be reversed by repairing the eardrum. Further loss can be caused by infections caused by germs passing through the hole. This may be identified by drainage. More infections = more chance of further damage. Some may be repairable and some permanent. See an ent. ...Read more
Eardrum hurts in right ear. On and off headaches throughout the day. Gets worse when hearing noise (loud) or (prolonged) what is this?
Is it possible that the problem is either outer or middle ear. It is unlikely coming from the inner ear.
The eardrum is probably inflamed due to your allergies and may not be moving correctly. Loud noises make the eardrum move more, thereby causing more pain.
You do need to have the ear examined by a doctor.
Other possibilities include wax, growth such as cysts, and rarely tumors. ...Read more
Just had sudden temporary hearing loss in right ear. Last week I had ringing and buzzing. I can hear now again but less loud then left ear!
Recently gotten intense pain in my left ear, but during said bouts, quality of hearing is not impacted. I listen to loud music, is this related?
TMJ: The duration of symptoms and context are important hear. If the hearing is not impacted, then you can rule out just about any form of ear infection (middle or outer). If the pain is very brief and sharp and possibly related to chewing/yawning it could be your tmj. It could also be your eustachian tube; however, the basis for your question - is it related to loud music - no. ...Read more
A few days ago after shower, felt like water was clogging my right ear. Now decreased hearing in right ear and loud ringing. Should I be worried?
No: Water in ear canal should eventually dry out and your hearing should return to normal. However, if this doesn't happen and/or ear becomes painful, prolonged exposure to water can increase risk for outer ear infection or swimmer's ear (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/swimmers-ear/basics/definition/con-20014723), so go see your Family Doc or ENT for evaluation if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Just heard very loud pop in my ear loud enough to make me jump-like someone took plastic bubble wrap &popped it directly in ear. No hearing loss. Cause?
Ear popping: An audible pop in the ear could be caused by the eustachian tube opening suddenly, causing a pressure differential in the middle ear, which you hear as a pop. Another common source of popping in the ear can be the jaw popping with opening the mouth, typically. If this keeps happening, you may need to see a doctor to evaluate this and probably an ENT would be best. ...Read more
Hearing loss I am a 40 year old female. I traveled to australia over two months ago with a pretty bad cold. My right ear was in a state and grew worse with the pressure changes, so much in fact, it was causing me great pain and I was hearing loud pops.
I am also afraid of doctors, and I am one...
I think your primary doctor can look in your ear to see if there is any damage (likely not, but the pressure problems can cause ear drum rupture--which would then relieve the pressure). They may also be able to see fluid in the middle ear (behind the ear drum). This problem can lasr weeks after the flight. If this continues, get a full hearing test and see an otolaryngologist (ent). Some medicines may speed your recovery: decongestant, nasal steroids, oral steroids (controversial), afrin. You may eventually need tubes. ...Read more
