My both ears started paining while using ear phones

Hi i am a music lover. I usually listen songs via ear phones. But for past few months my both ears started paining while using ear phones. I consulted doctors but still having pain. I cannot listen songs even in low volume. Somebody please help. Thanks Thanks for your information. I already did audiometry and temporal bone tests and the results shows nothing to worry. Even my doctor also told everything is fine and advise to avoid earphones. But i would like to use earphones to listen music in my office. Thanks again.

Dear thanks for query,prolonged use of ear phones is definitely not advised.This can lead to the problems like you have of pain,some foreign sounds in ear etc.Please avoid using them for a while.The doctor must have checked you ears for any problem and if they are fine there is no need to worry.Please take a brake for some time and you will be fine.this is common now a days with too much use of ear phones,hands free sets etc.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
The ear pain you are getting while using earphones is because the phone plugs are pressing over the cartilage of the external ear rather than by sound itself. This constant pressing of the plugs over the cartilage causes reduced blood supply to cartilage and hence inflammation, leading to pain. I would advice you to refrain from using earphones and try using headphones. If you feel the same pain, then it is wise to stop using any ear appliances.
Take care

Dr. Naveen Kumar
