Wax Impaction: You probably moistened a near complete wax impaction and made the blockage complete. This may require an ENT doctor to fix but you can try dissolving the wax. Debrox and Cerumenex are good at this. I suggest repeat usage several times a day until the wax dissolves. If it doesn't after a day or two time to see the doctor. Seeing a ENT rather than your pcp is recommended. ...Read more

I've been prescribed ear drops for my ear. Before taking them I was fine, after taking them It feels like I lost hearing in my left ear, is it normal?

Not normal: If you were fine before, what was the indication for the ear drops? It is most likely the ear drops have deposited on the ear drum. This will block some hearing. Have an ENT doctor observe the ear under a microscope in office and suction the ear drops off the drum and it is most likely your hearing will return to its previous state. ...Read more

Ear popping with swallowing or yawning signals pressure equalization between inner and out ear.

While annoying, this problem usually isn't serious. Rarely, if it persists and worsens, it can lead to a perforated eardrum, an acute ear infection, and even loss of hearing. Be sure to see your doctor if you develop fever, severe ear pain, or drainage from an ear. ...Read more

Eustachian tube issu: Yawning straightens out the canal between your middle ear & back of the throat. This often allows air movement back/forth. You likely have some transient swelling in that tube that prevents it from remaining open at rest. It normally allows moisture from your middle ear to drain into your throat & air to enter the space. If blocked, moisture can build and vacuum may pull in the drum. It will pass. ...Read more

Whenever I yawn I hae a tiny crackle in my ear. I am sick to?

Normal: When you yawn, the Eustachian tube (the channel that connects the back of the nose to the middle ear) opens and gases (air) from the back of the nose reach the middle ear space and often the patient can experience a crackle. This is a normal physiological phenomenon and every body should experience this event. Your sickness probably is independent of this normal process. ...Read more

Do you chew lots of gum? All these types of questions are important to answer your?? . See your doctor for confirmation. ...Read more

After everything went black, I was hearing some loud echoing noise, like the wind was blowing into my ear. It's happen once before, but not recently.

Blacking out?: I would be most concerned about why you blacked out. If you know why it happened (too much alcohol, etc), then you know how to prevent it from happening again. What happened after you blacked out isn't that relevant. But if you don't know why you blacked out, then you need to see your family doctor to help you figure out why it could have happened. You might need to see a few specialists. ...Read more
