Hearing Your Inner Voice

I have middle ear fluid, chronic tinnitus, hearing difficulties, ear fullness and severe balance issues. Would myringotomy tubes or hearing aids help?
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
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
Perhaps: An inner ear infection is extraordinarily rare and is either from meningitis or acute otitis media that has spread, to the inner ear causing deafness and profound vertigo. If you really did have an inner ear infection i would expect you to, have these and other symptoms such as deafness. Mild dizziness and tinnitus are common in otitis media and usually resolve as the fluid behind the drum resolves. ...Read more
Not usually UNLESS: there is a direct communication through perhaps a PERFORATED eardrum and your fingers are contaminated with material from an active lesion of HSV on your ear which by some really miraculous means is washed or sloughed off from your finger and makes it all the way past the eardrum and sets up shop in the middle ear with extension to the cochlea and so forth. Chance of that happening? NEAR ZERO. ...Read more

Meniere's disease?: Are you having headaches as well? With vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears perhaps??) you've described 3/4 symptoms of Ménière's disease, the only last symptom being headaches on the side of the hearing loss and ringing in the ear.

See an ENT doctor: Ear pain and fullness can be due to tmd (temporo-mandibular disorder). Retraction of drum may indicate eustachian tube obstruction, but that requires a specialist's observation. Crackling on swallowing is normal. The presence of normal hearing strongly indicates no pathology in the external or middle ear. ...Read more

Earwax: I think its due to the ear wax - attenuating the sounds. I would avoid using Q tips to clean your ears.

You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For chronic inner ear imbalance try as much as possible to avoid antidizzy drugs as they can impair the brain's ability to compensate. Suggest evaluation by neurootologist who specializes in hearing and balance disorders. ...Read more
