Is It Normal To Hear Like A Weird Sound In Ear Whilst Having An Ear Infection
Probably normal: I would have to know more about the sound., but I am guessing that it is crackling or popping which is usually air getting in to your ears as the fluid from the infection goes away. Sometimes the fluid moving can make a sound. If it is ringing, this could be a sign that the ear infection has spread to the inner ear and should be evaluated by with a hearing test and by an ENT (otolaryngologist).See 1 more doctor answer
There are three different types of ear infections that affect different areas of the ear. Outer ear infection (Otitis externa) affects the ear canal and the outside part of the ear. Middle ear infection (Otitis media) affects the middle ear and leads to fluid accumulation behind the ear drum. Inner ear infection (Otitis interna) is a less common inflammation of the inner ear that causes vertigo, ...Read more

Really bad ear infection in right ear and now hearing higher sound/pitch in that ear. What is this?
Had or have ear infection (17 days feels better)now when I swallow I hear a cracklings sound coming from my ear, no pain...
Very good sign!: After an ear infection, when the ear starts crackling that means that the fluid left over from the infection inside the middle ear is slowly draining out on its own with air slowly refilling the middle ear space. This may be a very long process, over several weeks - but the more crackling the better! Over time the ear and hearing should return to normal.See 1 more doctor answer
My doctor said I don't have an ear infection, but he prescribed to me SUDOGEST, CETIRIZINE, and FLUCTICASONE. Do these help the wave sound that I hear?
Probably not: These meds are for sinus or nasal congestion, not for tinnitus which is what I believe you are describing. No medication specifically helps tinnitus. Your doc may be hoping that by clearing up any congestion you might get relief from what is most often an inner ear condition. These usually clear up spontaneously especially at your young age.
I can barely hear on my right ear and when I swallow saliva I hear a pop sound. Is that a ear infection?
Fluid: It is likely that this is fluid. Not all middle ear fluid is infected - you can just have fluid without an associated infection. Infections usually have associated pain and/or fever. Best way to determine if an infection is present is for someone to look at it and see if there is redness and/or if the fluid present is cloudy and pussy.

Sudden hearing loss (10-15 dbs), pulsating headaches, no visible ear infection, MRI is fine, sensitivity to sound, nausea (no vertigo) - help?
Sudden ear changes: Hello, this is a case for your local ENT specialist. He/she will review your MRI scan. If the MRI was of your brain, a detailed exam of the temporal bones may be needed as well as a audiogram.
After infection clea: It depends on the infection whether it is viral or bacterial and if there is residual fluid left behind the ear drum after the full course of antibiotics and reexamination by the doctor if the infection has all clearedand there is no residual fluid behind the ear drum, your hering should return to normal gradually within 2to3 weeks.
Hearing: After an ear infection, the ear drum will be swollen and there could be fluid in the middle ear. Both of these problems need to resolve before your hearing will get better. In children, there are those who take over 3 months for this process. For adults, we don't tolerate it that long. If your hearing isn't back to normal within a month, you should really see an ENT for a full ear evaluation.
2-4 weeks: If not, then you should have your ears checked again to see if the infection is still present. You can also have fluid that remains after the infection, but that should be followed to make sure it resolves.
When Healed: Not only when the infection is gone, but the fluid and damage is totally healed. This can take an average of 2-6 weeks in kids.
Ear infection gone (or is better) I have lost some hearing and have ringing in my year is there fluid left when fluid leaves will I return to normal?
Most likely: Up to half of all people with a properly treated ear infection will have residual fluid in the middle ear space. This fluid often will muffle sounds and cause hearing loss at some frequency. Once the cause of the infection (ie, a cold) has resolved and the swelling of the tube between the throat and the ear improved, your hearing should definitely improve. If not, see your doctor.
Just finished meds for ear infection still can't hear & have paralysis in right side of face. Is this normal?
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
