Tinnitus : Tinnitus is the subjective sensation of sounds not from the surrounding environment. It is very common and one reason for worsening symptoms is hearing loss. Is there any loss after the procedure? These sensations are also common after manipulations of the ear. They should be self limiting, but if they do not resolve in 2-3 days or if pain and hearing loss are also present, i would recommend that it be evaluated by your primary care doctor. ...Read more

Initially it is reversible but can worsen with time and become permanent or lead to full blown hearing loss. It is important to go see your primary care doctor to help diagnose the cause. ...Read more

If : If the doctors cleaned a large amount of wax out of your ears, you may simply be hearing things you couldn't hear with your ears plugged. I'm not sure what you mean by your ears being sensitive to electronics. If you mean you are hearing more hissing and high pitched sounds, it could just mean you can hear better. If you mean wearing ear buds and earphones hurts, it may be that your ear cartilage is sore from using electronics too much. Sometimes the ear canals can get bruised cleaning wax out of the ears, and that could cause discomfort as well. If the problem is slowly improving, i would wait. If getting worse, return to your doctor, or an ear doctor to have it checked out. ...Read more

Can TMJ cause ears hissing/ringing? Ear dull aches and ear itching? Laying down moving jaw forward changes sound. MRI of ear and brain were good.

Yes Take home test!: It sounds like you have a TMJ problem. The reason the sound changes when you move you jaw forward is you are moving the condyle down and forward freeing the joint to function normally. When you do this usually the sound goes away. (clicking and popping) A good test is to open an close and listen for clicking and popping.Then bite on a cotton tip applicator (Qtip) open and close-no more noise. ...Read more

What exactly does it mean when you are getting a cold and can hear a bubble-poping/ running water sound in the ear?

Tubes stopped up: The eustachian tube ventillates and equalizes the pressure in the middle ear. With a cold, this tube swells and is irritated and does not work as well. You have build-up of pressure in the middle ear and then the pressure releases. You hear bubbles, pops, and snaps. It should go away with resolution of the cold. Sometimes stays longer and you have to be seen. ...Read more

If i puff cheek out keeping my mouth closed and than force more air into it hear kind of pinkling cracking sound in the ear on the side it will tingle?

That is normal: The Eustachian tube is a tube that links the nasopharynx (throat) to the middle ear. Under normal circumstances, the human Eustachian tube is closed, but it can open to let a small amount of air through to prevent damage by equalizing pressure between the middle ear and the atmosphere. When you build up pressure in the mouth, it can also force air into the middle ear, causing the crackling sound ...Read more
