Why Do Both My Ears Ring When I Only Have An Ear Infection In One Ear
Comes from brain: Ear ringing (tinnitus) typically is generated in the brain, so it can be perceived as coming from both ears or "inside the head". Occasionally it is generated directly by the ear or nearby structures. If chronic and/or pulsatile or assoc with other symptoms, best to see a specialist (otologist, neurotologist) to properly evaluate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There are three different types of ear infections that affect different areas of the ear. Outer ear infection (Otitis externa) affects the ear canal and the outside part of the ear. Middle ear infection (Otitis media) affects the middle ear and leads to fluid accumulation behind the ear drum. Inner ear infection (Otitis interna) is a less common inflammation of the inner ear that causes vertigo, ...Read more
I have an ear infection and was given Ciprodex ear drops. When I out them in my ear as I lie on my side and they just sit there. ?
Ciprodex: Ciprodex ear drops are treatment for an external ear infection (swimmer's ear) otitis externa. The ear canal is not particularly long and it is blocked off by the tympanic membrane. Therefore the ear drops have most likely made their way down to coat the entire canal and they just filled to the edge of your ear. Use less drops next time. ...Read more
I have a hypermobile tympanic membrane in my only hearing ear. It flops in and out when i swallow, and close my eyes, when i pop my ears. what are the?
Eustachian tube: The ear drum closes a chamber that otherwise has only one opening, that tube goes into the back of the nose. When you go up and down in a plane or elevator the air pressure changes. If the tube is blocked by allergy or inflammation, the change in pressure will "pop" your ear drum. When you swallow, cough or sneeze pressure builds up in your nose popping you ears. Check for allergic blockage, ...Read more
Do I have an ear infection? I have lost my hearing, my ear is very painful, when i blow my nose there is a crackling sound in my ear an its very sore
I have had an inner ear infection and now find myself with tinnitus in one ear.. why is this the case?
Infection irritation: If there is an infection within the middle ear then, the increased pressure in that compartment may be transmitted to the inner ear apparatus which is where the 8th nerve lies. Also, the infectious entity itself may be accessing the inner ear compartment since it's all fluid connected and this may be having a direct toxic effect on the 8th nerve hence, the tinnitus. ...Read more

I had an ear tube placed in right ear for ETD. It has helped; however, now my left ear feels clogged. Why is this, and do I need another tube?
My ear feels clogged I do have some pain, then when i open and close my mouth everyone can hear the the crackling sound and it blowing my nose dose not help also I do not have water in it. Could it be an ear infection?
This : This could be eustachian tube disorder, but the fact that others can hear the crackling makes me think that another option could be your jaw joint--the temporo-mandibular joint (tmj). Disorders and pain in that area is often referred to the ears with multiple symptoms: pain, fullness, popping...The pain can radiate to the head and cause headaches, or down into the neck and throat areas. It is the most common cause of ear pain when the ear looks normal to a doctor. This can be evaluated by your primary care doctor or a dental surgeon. Most common treatment is NSAID medications and physical therapy--rarely surgery is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need more info plz: When they say that your ear is "fine" does that mean that they checked it simply with an otoscope, made sure you were waxless, and then, sent you on your way? Or did they do some blood work, perhaps an audiogram, and perhaps, an MRI of your brain? Do you have headaches? How old are you, are you fertile, and does your vision dim?
