  • Should I Clean Wax from My Ears?

    If I can’t use cotton swabs, how am I supposed to clean my ears?Have you ever heard someone say, “Don’t put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear”? That suggestion is fun to visualize, but it is also great advice. Humans and ear wax, also called cerumen (suh-room-in), have been around...

  • Ringing in left ear?

    Sometimes we (humans) experience "transient ear noise" that comes and goes and doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong with you or your auditory system. However, when you have loud tinnitus that doesn't subside after a few minutes, it could mean something more serious is happening. My suggestion is that you contact your nearest otolaryngologist (ENT doctor) and tell them you need to be seen ASAP. Immediate treatment can reverse or reduce the long-term effect. Left untreated, you could suffer additional damage and symptoms, such as permanent hearing loss, dizziness, and tinnitus. READ MORE

  • Clogged right ear for 3 days?

    Contact your ENT doctor right away. This might be very serious and require immediate treatment to preserve your right ear hearing. Your description of the symptoms are also similar to someone with ear wax (cerumen) blocking their ear--so the issue could be resolved right away by the ENT or an audiologist by removing the blockage. In either case, please make get in to see the first available ENT doctor. READ MORE

  • Hearing question?

    You are experiencing tinnitus. People often describe tinnitus, not so much as a tone, but a humming or buzzing noise, often with a high-frequency element to it. Tinnitus can be caused by a host of things ranging from caffeine or sugar intake to side-effects from medications or exposure to loud noise. If you work somewhere noisy or expose yourself to loud recreational noise, such as loud music, firearms, motorcycles, etc., I suggest you use hearing protectors. Check your medications and diet to see if they are contributing to your tinnitus. Often all it takes to reduce tinnitus is changing medications, adjusting your diet, or exercising to lower your blood pressure. READ MORE

  • My hearing loss is being attributed to my mental illness?

    I am so sorry to hear that your experience with the audiologist was not helpful. If possible, I recommend you seek another exam from a different audiologist and take your previous test results with you so they can compare. There are a number of reasons that hearing loss may fluctuate from test to test. It would be best to get a second opinion. READ MORE

  • Hard bump behind ear, no pain, is getting bigger?

    Please schedule an appointment with the next available ENT doctor. Tinnitus, headaches, and dizziness may be symptoms of a more serious condition. An ENT doctor (otolaryngologist) will be able to evaluate and make an appropriate diagnosis for observation or treatment. READ MORE
