When To See A Doctor For Muffled Hearing
Woke up with ear pain two weeks ago and have had muffled hearing since. Pretty sure it's fluid. Is this an ear infection? Should i see a doctor?
I had mono went back to the doctor and she didn't see a virus anymore.I still feel dizzy with hearing loss could this be a sinus infection from mono?
Dizzy, hearing loss: Those issues may be somewhat unrelated to mononucleosis. If you had upper respiratory symptoms with the mono, then may be related. I would suggest seeing an otolaryngologist at this point to sort things our further, get a good head/neck exam, and possibly hearing testing. ...Read more

A hearing test: It depends on how long the hearing loss has been going on for. The first thing that will happen is the doctor will look in your ears and see if there's any wax or other problem that can be fixed. Then a hearing test will be performed. If the hearing loss is only of a few days duration high-dose steroids can be quite helpful. If the problem is fluid and then it can be drained. It is very important to see the ear nose and throat doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
Hi doctor. My child has complained of suddenly hearing loss, some time he could not understand word.dr advise hearing aid after test . Please help me.
Sudden hearing loss: sudden hearing loss is a abrupt loss of hearing of 30 decibels or more over at least 3 frequencies on the hearing test. Acute hearing loss can be treated with steroids or observed. Some hearing comes back even without treatment. If the doctor recommended a hearing aid, I am assuming his hearing loss is older that one month. 1 month seems to be the golden window for treatment. ...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

Depends: If it's a recent traumatic perforation then the likelihood of healing spontaneously is high within 6 weeks. If it doesn't heal then it will need repair. Depending on the size of the hole repair can be anywhere from simple to complex. You should have an ENT doctor following you. ...Read more

As with any medicine the side effect list is rather long. You can Google this. If he has a history of diabetes or stomach ulcers or kidney problems he should not take this medicine. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck ...Read more
I had MRI scan of my ears TODAY. They wouldn't tell me anything after. Hearing loss in right ear. Sinister? Don't be rude like previous doctor on here
Hearing loss. Irrigation, olive oil & ear drops all failed. Any ideas doc? It's reoccurring, found out the other day I suffered /w bad ears as a baby.
See ENT: You most likely have a cerumen impaction (earwax build-up). Even though you tried some outpatient therapies for ear wax build-up it is still most likely. I would see ENT though so they can assess the cause of the hearing loss. If you don't have a cerumen impaction then there can be a more significant cause of your hearing loss. Not sure what "suffered with bad ears as a baby" means. ...Read more

Ent doctor said hearing loss due to fixed bone behind ear but no scan done only a hearing test. Right ear has loss. No scan. Is this sinister?
Sounds OK: If you have conductive hearing loss on the right side only and a normal-appearing eardrum, the most likely cause of hearing loss is otosclerosis. This is fixation of the stapes bone in the middle ear. This can't be seen on scans; the most reliable way to confirm in middle ear exploration. Some ear surgeons will perform a CT to assess for other causes, but most do not. ...Read more
