Brief Answer: Get ENT consultation urgently Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for the question. You had trauma to the ear in childhood and now infections. You should get ENT consultation done for examination of ear ,if there is perforation then you must get it operated. Ear drum perforation if persist for long causes hearing loss with every episodes of infection. So before surgery a hearing test ie pure tone audiometry is a must. As you are also complaining of dizziness so before surgery you should get done a HRCT scan temporal bone to rule out bone erosion due to disease. Hope I have answered your question, please write back to me if you need further clarifications. Wishing you good health. Regards

April 1, 2011 woke up with ear ache and went to doctor and he indicated that I had some fluid on the ear and the ear drum was bulging and red. He gave me an antibiotic. I took that for approx 2 weeks. He then gave me a steriod and I made an appointment with an ear, nose and throat specialist. He did not find any fluid but I told him it felt like by ear canal was being pinched. He gave me a hearing test and hearing was ok. He gave me some ear drops and told me to get Mucinex-D. Today is June 28 and my ear canals mainly the left ear still feels pinched or very tight. Any suggestions? thanks

After a swim 2 weeks ago, I started hearing this tinny sound in my right ear. It hear/feel it when walking/running or when sounds are loud. Normal level conversation/sounds are not an issue, but as soon as it reaches a certain pitch/level it sounds tinny (slightly distorted). Hard to explain. Saw my doctor the other day and she suggested getting a hearing testing to see if there is fluid behind the eardrum. if there was fluid, and would have thought that my normal hearing would be much more impaired. Any other ideas as to what it could be?
