Why Did An Ent Puncture Both My Eardrums At The Same Time When I Was Twelve
About 11 years ago I was hit by a car and lost 80% of my eardrum. The doctor then, under surgery gave me a prosthetic eardrum. I am aware when one gets a prosthetic ligament they need to get it re sized. Does the same thing happen to an eardrum? My ear ha

What is wrong with my girlfriend? My girlfriend went in for surgery then released. After a couple months i noticed her ears were flaky. So when i looked at both ears i felt to clean them. Three days later more layers appeared so i did the same. This has b
Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your girlfriend's condition. I also don't know what her surgery was for. From the stand point of chinese medicine, the ear is a microsystem of the rest of the body. The body is represented by an upside down homonculus in the ear. Different organs and parts of the body are represented on different places on the external ear. It is not uncommon to have flaking or discoloration in parts of the ear that correspond to the involved body parts. For instance a doctor friend had flaking of her ear in the area that represents her elbow. In talking to her - she had chronic tennis elbow. This may or may not help to explain her flaking. ...Read more

Hard : Hard to know from this history. A look in the ear may reveal more wax down by the ear drum. Tinnitus, that noise you are hearing in your ear, is often brought on by other problems in the ear. As those problems resolve the tinnitus can go away. If it is persistent, you may need a hearing test and an evaluation by an ent. ...Read more
My daughter's right ear is painful and throbbing. We just took an airplane yesterday so at first I thought it was from the flight. It has been about 36 hours since we flew. Also, it feels clogged all the time. Thank you. ?
I got two cartilage piercings on the same ear right next to each other this past sunday (almost a week ago now). They are still red, a little swollen, and hurt a little to touch? Are they infected? What should I do?
Maybe infected: get it check out by a doctor or your PCP. ...Read more

When my implant was removed two injections were given to me at the same place what is it for?I didn't see my period since then and not pregnant.
Anesthetic: My best guess would be that this was a local anesthetic to numb the area and has nothing to do with your delayed period. Remember that you can get pregnant as soon as the week after removal. To be sure what the injections were you would have to ask the person who gave them. Hope this helps. You might want to check a pregnancy test. ...Read more
I had my 3rd spinal surgery in the last 2 years and this time he closed up with staples instead. What would be the reason for that? they hurt!
Ask your surgeon: There are a variety of potential reasons they were used. You could probably get the best answer from your surgeon himself, although there is not much that can be done at this point. I would let them know if they are particularly painful as it may be a sign of some form of complication. Staples in the back typically come out at 10-14 days, so at least it will have an end soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctor, can i know if subconjuctival hemorrhage will have the affect on the ear? Because 2-3 days after i have ringing sound at the same side.
Not directly: Subconuctival hemorrhage is benign local bleeding or bruising. The cause could be from trauma(rubbing, injury), straining(cough, sneezing, heavy lifting or constipation). The other most important cause could be from high blood pressure or blood thinners. The ringing of the ear could be from high blood pressure. Please check your blood pressure to make sure its not high. ...Read more

An ant got in to my ear last april and i got no consultation yet at doctor does it damage my ear? or barrow at my inner ear?
I had a root canal done in my molar. After one month i felt pain while eating on it. I went to the dr. And he told me it's broken into two halvess i don't want to remove it if at all possible. Do I have other options?
Nature will prevail: Most rct teeth that fracture in half require removal. No one can force you to have treatment that you do not want. However, if the tooth is unrestorable, as advised by your dentist, and you elect to just leave it, in time you are almost guaranteed pain & swelling & have less options & more problems. Sometimes one has to accept the inevitable and cut their losses early. If unsure, seek 2nd opinion. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I went to an orthodontist a while ago for the clicking in my knee and he told me it was inflammation under the knee cap (i think- i can't remember where exactly in the knee area). He recommended therapy for six weeks and then a follow up. I have not gone

I'm virgin. I never had sex but I can see a transection like at 3 o clock on my hymen when i look it in the mirror. Will it bleed at my first night?
Maybe/not: Some girls are born with little hymen tissue or lose what they have in childhood in a non-sexual event. Some have one so thick and hard it must be surgically opened because "first time" sex will never get through. You have what you have & may or may not bleed. You know you're a virgin & don't need that marker for proof, because it isn't proof. Think of all the partner sex that avoids the vagina ...Read more
I got a cartilidge ear piercing in the very beginnig of august. When i take the earing out now it will start to close up in a few hours. Why is this?
Why did doctors used to hit us on the knees with a tiny hammer like thing back in the day? I always wondered what was expected of me.
Hello. : Hello. We still tap on knees and other locations with a reflex hammer. The patient's job is to relax and to try not to focus to much on the tap. This allows the doctor to determine if the patient's reflexes are strong or weak, and if they are overly fast, over slow or just the right speed. Great question. ...Read more
