May be other entity: There are other "things" that can cause one to hear swishing sounds in the ear so if your doctor has only sent you for audiometry testing you could inquire as to their opinion in performing some other tests to rule out something abnormal within the inner ear or even the neck itself.

What is wrong with my ears electronics hurt my ear now? A weak ago I had lots of wax in my ears the doctor cleaned out all the wax I went home now when its quiet I hear a high-pitched sound from the television and when its quiet I hear a hissing sound my
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
