Slight Ringing In Ears
I've woken up with muffled hearing in my ear tried to clean but hasn't helped. Now I have a slight ringing in ear and a headache. what could this be?
Couple thoughts: If this is new, usually due to ear wax or fluid in the middle ear. Cleaning with q-tip often compacts the wax worsening the problem. Can try ear cleaning solution from drug store. Another common cause is fluid trapped in middle ear and this may drain on its own, or is often relieved by 1-2 days Sudafed. If not resolved or if headache worsens, let your primary doctor know. ...Read more

Was sick. Went to doc. Took azythromycin and oxycodone. Blew nose too hard. Have slight ringing, muffled hearing in one ear 4 days and can't "pop" it.
Tha'r She Blows!!!!!: This is very common: blowing air back into your ear when blowing your nose but the overall congestion won't allow it to escape. Then after a while some fluid can collect, and then if that hangs out long enough it can become infected. If the fluid or air can be removed with decongestants you'll feel better. And be careful blowing the nose: gently, one nostril at a time. chewing gum may help too. ...Read more
