Is It Normal To Get Tinnitus When You Have Blocked Ears
Does it hurt to drain you ears? I might need that as i have had unbalance hearing for bout a month due to sinus infect which is not completely heal. What is actually done to drain the ear?
Antihist./decongesta: ears drain into the nose thru the eustacian tube, if nasal congestion it backs up so need over the counter antihistamine and decongestant like zyrtec d or other similar generic. the best is flonase now otc too , but use all three , always flush nose first with nasal saline if thick mucus to help too. wait 2 weeks to dry up the inner ears , if not working or getting worse see your dr. ...Read more
Yes: Swimmer's ear, or otitis externa is infection/inflammation of the external acoustic canal, which produces pain, hearing deficit, drainage, bleeding, vertigo, as result of inflammation or infection of the surrounding structures. Head movement changes the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid in the middle ear canal (semicircular canal), and surrounding middle and external ear structures result in pain ...Read more

When you have a sinus infection is it normal to hear your heartbeat in your ear, when resting? How do I get rid of it?
Pulsatile tinnitus: When you have a sinus infection and severe nasal congestion, your eustachian tube cannot equalize your middle ear pressure and cause a mild decrease in hearing. The blood flow across you ear drum becomes audible as you cannot hear the background noise well. It should resolve after the infection. See an ENT doctor if it persists! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wax?: Your problem may not be as simple as merely removing wax from your ear. There are otc products as your pharmacy that doctors recommend such as "debrox earwax removal aid kit". Unless you get complete and immediate relief using that product, you should see your physician. It might also be related to a TMJ problem that your dentist can evaluate. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How do you tell if you have a Eustachian tube my ear farts an won't pop when forced is that a sign?
Maybe: An audiological test called a tympanogram can determine if you have a blocked Eustachian tube. The fact that you can not inflate the middle ear when you force air into the back of your nose is certainly a sign that the Eustachian tube is blocked. An ENT doctor can also give you help. ...Read more
I know you aren't suppose to blow your nose when you have a ruptured ear drum, but what if you do it with a ear plug in & hear a pop but can hear stil?
May delays healing: The reason nose blowing is discouraged is that the perforation heals from the outside in by the very thin inner and outer drum layers. It is missing the tough central layer so if you were to force air into the ear from the nose it could blow the healing layers outward and prevent self repair even if there was an ear plug in place. Over 90% will heal spontaneously. ...Read more
My ear feels clogged I do have some pain, then when i open and close my mouth everyone can hear the the crackling sound and it blowing my nose dose not help also I do not have water in it. Could it be an ear infection?
This : This could be eustachian tube disorder, but the fact that others can hear the crackling makes me think that another option could be your jaw joint--the temporo-mandibular joint (tmj). Disorders and pain in that area is often referred to the ears with multiple symptoms: pain, fullness, popping...The pain can radiate to the head and cause headaches, or down into the neck and throat areas. It is the most common cause of ear pain when the ear looks normal to a doctor. This can be evaluated by your primary care doctor or a dental surgeon. Most common treatment is NSAID medications and physical therapy--rarely surgery is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
