CT, ENT exam, tymp test, &audiogrm normal: Cause of ear fullness & muffled hearing? Hard to hear myself singing mid-range/using facial resonators.
Eustachian tube dyfx: you are likely suffering from Eustachian tube dysfunction. The Eustachian tube lies between the middle ear space and the back of the nose. You can check this tube by holding your nose and blowing hard. Your ears should pop. This may help the fullness feeling in the ears. If it helps, do this at least 30 or 40 times a day. If your ears do not pop, you may need a nasal steroid. Good luck! ...Read more
Inner Ear: Loud noise damages the microscopic hair cells in the inner ear. This damage manifests itself as tinnitus.

You really need to see an ear specialist to examine your ears and do a hearing test. ...Read more

I have middle ear fluid, chronic tinnitus, hearing difficulties, ear fullness and severe balance issues. Would myringotomy tubes or hearing aids help?
Beat of the Drum: When the middle ear is distended due to fluid or air pressure accumulation, it can disrupt normal sound perception. If a condition exists where there is obstruction of the eustachian tube, then it is possible to hear noises like your own heartbeat from a vessel close to the drum. In most instances this is normal and resolves. Persistent perception should be examined to rule out other problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please help me differentiate between hearing damage / tympanic membrane perforation symptoms. A gun was fired near my ear today. Certain hearing loss.
NIHL.: Most likely noise induced hearing loss. This sometimes happens when sound pressure exceeds the 120dB range - OSHA allows up to 140 dB single exposure. Sometimes this will get better over a few hours / day. Cannot rule out a rupture of the tympanic membrane. You need a good exam and visit with an expert to see if there are any options or need for repair. Maybe Magnesium? ...Read more

5yo perf eardrum mild hearing loss that is getting worse. Failed tympanography. Why hearing getting worse? Worry about mastoiditis? Regular ent appts.
It happens/rare: Mastoiditis is rare today in children or adults that have access to medical care. When there is a recurrent middle ear issue there is often mild hearing loss due to the muck that accumulates in the middle ear and interferes with the ear bones ability to amplify hearing.Over time, it should improve & regular monitoring is your best way to assure that it does. ...Read more
