    Ear Doesn't Vibrate As Much?

    Hello, I just got back from an ENT doctor a less than a week ago with a disappointing diagnosis of sudden sensorineural hearing loss, and that there was nothing that indicates what caused it or what can be done (other than an MRI). Part of this misdiagnosis (what I believe it to be anyway), could be partly due to me not relaying as much information as I could, as I felt the doctor seemed rather rushed. Slight hearing loss was noticed on the morning of 2/13; the day after I started wearing my new....

    Sore/dry "cobble-stoning" throat for two months. Anyone with similar experiences?

    I have had a sore/dry throat for about 2 months now with few other symptoms. No fever, cough, runny nose etc... I do however have thick or excessive mucus production in the back of my throat. It has not improved or worsened over time. I saw a doctor virtually a few weeks ago and she noticed that my tonsils had tiny holes in them which she referred to as "cobble-stoning" likely caused by the mucus build up. She prescribed me Amoxicillin which did nothing to help. I've now been prescribed....

    Possible strep?

    I'm a 21 yo F and suspect I may have strep. I've been struggling with a sore throat and nausea for about a week, and have had some various pains, including an on and off headache and strange nasal pain, that feels like it's just inside my skull, plus a slight runny nose (mild spring allergies, though I don't recall anything beyond a touch of runny nose previously) I've also been experiencing abdominal pain, typically on either side, sometimes at the bottom of the ribcage and sometimes....

    Tonsil swelling, little to no pain

    I’ve had tonsil stones on and off for over a month with almost no pain, just a scratchy throat. Recently for the past week, both tonsils have been red and swollen. There also appears to be “pockets” in my right tonsil, which is bigger than the left one. Have had a bit of excess mucus but nothing that’s not manageable. I wasn’t planning on getting it checked out unless they got bigger/painful, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

    Uncommon Issue: Clicking with apparent connection to engagement of the soft palate, ear popping when swallowing

    7 months ago or so, I noticed a certain clicking noise that seemed to be coming from my nasopharynx area when I said certain words. "Favor," "cookie," and "papa" to name a few. Although this clicking is not particularly noticeable to others, it is indeed audible if they know to be listening for it or if we are in a quiet space. It is very audible to myself and, more importantly, very audible to a microphone. As an aspiring voice actor, this issue has caused me much consternation....

    Ears checked

    I am off balance and unsteady all the time. When I walk I stagger and I feel like I'm leaning to one side and I also have to hold on to something. I also get lightheaded dizzy whatever you wanna call it, but it comes and goes. I get a ringing in my ears sometimes. Last night it was in my right ear and my ears pop when I swallow or yawn. One of my coworkers told me that's not normal when your ears pop. Does anyone else have this problem.

    Swimmers’ ear??

    I had a physical a few weeks ago, and told the dr I thought I might have some kind of outer ear infection. My outer ear canal itches, sometimes unbearably! Occasionally, I also have a mild to medium earache. She said there was no wax , no discharge, no redness, no rash. Everything looked fine. I’m afraid to put cortisone cream there, or any other anti itch cream, for fear that might really cause an infection. I’ve been trying a few drops of hydrogen peroxide but while nothing is getting worse, the....

    Ear infection

    I had ear blockage a few days ago. I used wax rx to clear my ears. Afterwards my right ear started hurting. I used cbd oil to elevate the pain. It worked fine but soon after my ear started to swell inside. I've used olive oil also to help medicate with little success.
