  • Inner Ear twitching + ear pain plus side of head pain.

    So basically, for the last few days my inner ear will sort of twitch/flutter and that feeling will lead to my inner ear/ear and then the left side of my head hurting. It happens at random intervals as does the length of the pain. I've used earwax removal drops 3 times over the last three days and flushed with warm water and to that extent am thinking/hoping it is not a bug. Google isn't coming up with anything definitive so I just thought I would ask here. Unfortunately my last doctors visit....

    Ringing/fullness in ears.

    So ive had this feeling in my ears for about a two weeks. I've almost gotten used to it, but i know i should ask. So i was on an airplane coming back from my vacation, and once i landed, my ears didnt seem to "pop" back. I didn't think much of it. but the ringing and fullness in my ears seemed to stick around. So I looked it up and thought i just had some water trapped in my ears and learned if you close your nose and blow through it, it will sort of pop back the ears. So i did....

    Constant throat clearing / mucus

    Hi! For about 7 months now I have felt like there is something stuck in my throat. I am constantly clearing my throat, and when I do, the feeling goes away briefly, but returns minutes later. Some days are worse than others, but when I clear my throat there is definitely mucus in the back of it. It seems like post-nasal drip, BUT it gets worse with certain foods/drinks, such as caffeine, carbination. I have a history of acid reflux, and have been on and off antacids, but that has't helped the....

    Throat Infection due to Environment Change

    I have had pain on one side of my throat for over a month. I went to an ear, nose and throat doctor and they found a lesion on tonsil which was an infection and swollen lymphoid on that side of the neck. The doctor said the infection was from environmental changes since I recently moved from Florida to California and prescribed me a antibiotic. I took the medication as directed and have had no relief from the pain. Has anyone ever heard of an infection from an environmental change? IF so, can you....

I left work and went to the ER where they took a CT scan of my brain and blood lab tests which both came back....

    HELP!!! Dog bite resulted in lose of cartilage in nose and infection—VERY SERIOUS!!

    Hello, I am writing on behalf of my sister in law. A year and a half ago her dog bit her on the bottom of her nose causing extensive damage.

She has visited various EMTs and plastic surgeons within the Dallas Ft. Worth area but everyone says the same thing—they “have never seen anything like it”, check her nose to see if the condition has worsened....

  • Ear pressure

    For the past couple of months, I have been experiencing a pressure in both of my ears, mostly in the morning time, as if there is a large build up of wax. I did a cleaning with a mixture of white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, which yielded no results. I haven't had an ear infection in years and I had my wife look inside and she could see nothing that would be causing these symptoms. Any ideas?
