ENT said not labyrinthitis, hearing test monday, muffled hearing in my left ear, super scared it's acoustic neuroma. All symptoms except numbness.

Asymmetric hearing: Asymmetric hearing may be due to multiple etiologies: infectious, Meniere's, membrane rupture, autoimmune, medication, tumor. An audiogram followed by an ABR (auditory brainstem response) with asymmetry is reasonable. An MRI may be warranted pending evaluation also. Acoustic neuromas are rare even with the associated symptoms however should be evaluated. ...Read more

My ears feel plugged and muffled and I am now extremely sensitive to sound. Hearing even footsteps hurts like crazy. Is this a normal earache?

My ears feel plugged and muffled and I am now extremely sensitive to sound. Hearing even footsteps hurts like crazy.   Is this a normal earache?

No: An earache means your ear actually hurts. Does your ear hurt? Are you more sensitive to internal sounds such as that occurs when chewing or hearing your own footsteps rather than of others? If that is the case and your ear does not hurt, when considering your other symptoms, it sounds like you may have accumulated fluid behind your ear drum, what we call serous otitis media. ...Read more

Earwax in my ear canal. when myself or people talk louder than normal my ear whistles. no hearing loss. ?

Earwax in my ear canal. when myself or people talk louder than normal my ear whistles. no hearing loss. ?

Earwax: I think its due to the ear wax - attenuating the sounds. I would avoid using Q tips to clean your ears. Your family doctor should be able to flush your ears out if needed and that should take care of the problem. You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax. ...Read more

Why do I keep hearing white noise or ringing in my ear?

Good question: Ringing in the ears is a very common complaint seen in an ENT office. If the sound is symmetrical in both ears, it is probably of no concern. If it only on one side, a complete ear workup is mandatory. If it is the result of excessive noise exposure, it is usually not correctable. The why in your question is that the most modern concept is a synchronous electrical discharge from the brain. ...Read more
