    Tubes in ears and head congestion

    I had tubes put in both ears yesterday. Ever since my head has that very plugged feeling and sound. I even tried some Advil Cold and Sinus but it did not clear. Is this normal. They did this inoffice with just numbing in the ear, no anesthesia.

    Ear pain when turning head/cool burn

    Hello, I've been experiencing uncomfortable pain in my right ear when turning my head to the left. It feels as though a cool burning liquid (similar to a Vicks Vaporub sensation) is shooting down from my ear canal into my neck. The cool burn will linger once my head returns forward. I can hear fine, I don't feel congested and I don't believe I have allergies. Any insight?

    Fluid behind the ear drum

    I flew on a plane about 3 weeks ago and my ears were got clogged. One never popped. I went to the Dr's after 2 weeks and they gave me ear drops and Zpack . Seems I had some allergy or cold. That didn't work. I went back after a week they gave me prednisone for inflammation. The dr thinks I might have fluid behind the ear drum. He told me I should hear again by the 3rd day. It's been 5 still can't hear and the meds are not working. He said if you can't hear by the 6 day you should....

    Ringing in Ears After Concert

    I went to a local concert last night that was held at a small coffee shop/pub. Three bands played over the course of about three hours, all of which I practically had a front-row spot for. It was a heavy metal show, so it goes without saying that it was absurdly loud, but I didn't think anything of it at the time. I had been to several concerts before, and had only experienced a ringing for about three or four hours afterwards. In addition, the noise level wasn't painful to me, so I figured....

    Constant ear infections and ear pain

    I'll start off by stating that I am 16 years old, and an overall healthy teenage girl. When I was younger, (toddler age) I got frequent ear infections that my doctor said would go away as I got older. I also had highly sensitive ears. I stopped getting them almost completely as I got into school age. Now, when I turned 16, things got bad again. I started with a minor ear infection and was treated with, I believe, Zithromax. This gave me some bad symptoms/ side effects. Being the naïve young self....

    I was punched in the nose 5 days ago, no swelling, but the pain won't let up. Any advice please? Should I be concerned?

    I was punched in the nose 5 days ago. It bled heavily for about an hour. The next morning, I woke up with pain all around my nose. The pain has now receeded to only the where the bridge of my nose connects to my face. All around that area of the bridge is very sensitive to touch. The pain almost feels behind my nose. It also hurts a bit in my upper mouth above my front teeth. I have been reading many posts online, but they all say I would have swelling if anything was wrong. I do not have swelling....
