    Artificial Ear Drum

    So, I'm not sure if I'm explaining this right but.. I've had problems with my left ear for some time. Because of this, I have an artificial ear drum, along with 3 of my "ear bones?" Replaced with titanium ones. This was done over 4-5 years ago. Well, for the past 5 months or so I've had an ear infection. I've been taking antibiotics, but haven't had the money to go to a doctor. (I'm working on it) Well, the other day my more "permanent" tube had fell....
  • 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....

  • 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?

    Extreme ear fullness/pressure all day every day, accompanied by pressure in the head and behind the nose, also headaches

    The symptoms have lasted for over a month now. I'd get up in the morning, will feel some fullness in the head. A couple of hours later (depends on the day really, not accurate) ear fullness will come on, when I yawn, the ears pop for like 3-4 seconds, then return to the fullness again. When I'm lying down on my back, I feel extreme pressure in the back of the head accompanied by pressure/fullness in the ears and behind the nose. It also feels like something's pressing against the throat....

    Sore Throat Around 6 months now

    Hey, So around 6 months ago I got a sore throat and a cough, after 3 months I noticed it wasn't easing or going away so I went to the doctor.

I'm not in agony but the left side of my throat has a sharp pain and I can feel it in my left ear also. I'm going to head back to the doctors but its super expensive as my....

    constant ear ringing

    Please Help!! I have experienced ringing in my ears for several years, but not this severe. I have been to an ENT, had a hearing test and surgery for a deviated septum. I have entered medications currently used and they do not seem to cause ringing. This started 4 days ago. I have used OTC drops with no relief. Please advise! Thanks!!
