    Ear candling worked amazing for me!

    My Dr's have told me that WebMd is a reliable sight for medical info. I just did ear candling on my ears and the wax I got out was amazing. I was so disappointed to read that WebMd considers this method to be dangerous and unfounded. I know what my gross ear wax looks like. I have ear wax problems because I have tiny ear canals and removing it has been difficult. I tried the candling and the amount it removed was remarkable. No pain, supervised for safety, and very fast. My wax was hard and dry....

    Bacterial Throat Infection Every Menstrual Cycle

    For years now, every time I have a period, I get a bacterial infection of some kind. Most of the time it is tonsilitis. I have reduced the amount of periods I have by taking the pill without breaks, as recommended by my gynecologist. It seems that the infections were caused by anemia, due to the large amount of blood I was losing. Since reducing the number of periods I have, I haven't had as many throat infections. However, recently they have come back. Obviously I will get my blood tested for....

    Chronic coughing

    Every year around this time I get a really bad cough which lasts up to a few months sometimes. Everything aggravates it; from standing up to breathing in too fast. It's really painful and sometimes I taste blood in my mouth after a particularly bad coughing fit. Should I go to the doctors? I've only had it this time for a week but it's already so severe I can't leave the house because I'm coughing too much.

    I started getting tinnitus in my right ear last night and it hasn't gone away...

    I was meditating when I started to hear a ringing in my right ear. It hasn't gone away since. What worries me is that it's just one ear. As a kid I had a lot of ear problems. Lots of infections, a tube in my ears, etc. Is this an emergency? Should I see a doctor? I should mention that I don't have health care.

    Hearing thing's more high pitched after recovering from fever.

    So i recovered from a 102.4 F fever, and now the thing's are more high pitched by a small amount than normal. At first i thought it was my headphones but how would that be the case i thought, i tried watching a familiar movie on tv to see if it truly was my headphones, but it was not, even the tv sounded higher pitched so it had to be me. I tried looking this problem up but didn't find anything. Does anyone know what this is or how to fix it? Will i ever hear things normally again?

    Frequent Nosebleeds

    I have been getting frequent nosebleeds recently. I have always got them when the whether changes and I would say about once a month minimum but lately I have gotten 4 in a weeks length. When I was younger I was hit with a baseball and broke my orbital and nose and to my knowledge, deviated my septum. I always attribute the nosebleeds to this but now that they are becoming a bit more frequent I am starting to get worried. They are always from the same nostril and do not last very long at all but....

    Vibrating while sitting in chair

    Hello. For about 4 to 6 weeks now, I am experiencing a very troublesome and at times painful vibrating while sitting still in my recliner. I wonder if anyone has any ideas to help me? I posted under ENT because I wear headphones quite a bit while in my chair and listen to loud music and movies, so I wonder if it has anything to do with my ears or hearing? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
