Is it possible to go too deep into brain when you are cleaning your ears?

Is it possible to go too deep into brain when you are cleaning your ears?

Unlikely: If you're using a q-tip (which is inadvisable), then you probably won't go past the ear drum. But, theoretically, if you stick something long enough, you may puncture your way through. ...Read more

Is it possible to die if your eardrum bursts and infection gets into your brain?

Is it possible to die if your eardrum bursts and infection gets into your brain?

Yes but...: Any ear infection can theoretically spread to the brain and result in meningitis or brain abscess and with a worst case scenario result in death. But, this is really unusual. In 20+ years of practice I have seen less than a handful of ear infections that have spread to the brain and none of those patients died. ...Read more

Theres a rumor going around that parasites can hatch in your ears and get into your brain is this true how would you know if they was in your ear?

Ear parasites: The person who told you this probably already has something destroying their brain. You can get mites in the ear canal, but they do not get into the brain. Occasionally Ascaris will get into the inner ear from the GI tract, but does not get into the brain. Do not worry about this, it is nonsense. ...Read more

What is the medical term for when your ears are crackly and blocked with distorted sound? I need to swallow or force pressure into them to fix it.

?ET obstruction: The most likely diagnosis is eustachian tube (et) obstruction. This is probably confirmed by your forcing open the tube to ventilate the middle ear space when you swallow or force air through this tube to equalize pressure in the middle ear and the outside barometric pressure. I probably would recommend an ENT doctor or an allergist. But i definitely think you have et dysfunction. ...Read more

Mental Health: Hi this is a great forum, but for mental health nothing beats talking to a specialist in person. It is hard to diagnose or offer advice online. But, this may just be normal. It does not sound like hallucinations to me. There are some great mental health specialists here in the seattle area. ...Read more

Can your vein blow from too much pressure, from the rubber band being too tightened? And if so can you also pass out from this BEFORE knowing it blew?

Can your vein blow from too much pressure, from the rubber band being too tightened? And if so can you also pass out from this BEFORE knowing it blew?

Vein distension: With a tight band, blood would pool below the vein but bleeding from the distended vein would be unusual. It shouldn't cause loss of consciousness either as the volume of pooled blood wouldn't be large enough to affect blood flow to the heart enough to cause a blackout. ...Read more

Your : Your friend is lucky to have someone who is concerned about her health and well being. After some research into the subject, the two main harmful effects of doing this are respiratory (lung) and GI (stomach) issues. The respiratory concerns are impaired breathing which can lead to respiratory distress and even pneumonia, both of which can be deadly. The GI issues are mainly vomiting and abdominal pain, and esophagitis. I hope your friend stops this behavior afte rlearning of the harmful side effects; if not please encourage her to seek help.

I always turn bass all the way up on my radio. If you put your hand on the walls you can feel it. You can hear it in the other room(bass). Is it bad?

Too loud=bad hearing: It is well know that too much noise exposure from any source including music from a radio can damage your hearing. And more exposure equals more chances at more damage. Loud music, concerts, loud machines or engines, fireworks, firearms, aircraft, all can damage your hearing. Be sensible. ...Read more
