You really need to see an ear specialist to examine your ears and do a hearing test. ...Read more

Studies done on the : impact of ambient noise in Neonatal Intensive Care Units resulted in recommendations to remove radios/other music, turn down the volume on monitors & avoid plunking items down on closed warmers.

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.

If your ears do not pop, you may need a nasal steroid. 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
Earwax in my ear canal. when myself or people talk louder than normal my ear whistles. no hearing loss. ?
Earwax: I think its due to the ear wax - attenuating the sounds. I would avoid using Q tips to clean your ears. Your family doctor should be able to flush your ears out if needed and that should take care of the problem. You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
