Question: I have had a bronchial infection for several weeks which is much better now after treatment. I also have high blood pressure which sometimes becomes erratic. I have regular doctors to consult however, after my last round of antibiotics I have developed a hearing problem. Sort of like you might feel if your ears feel like popping at high altitude. Also continually hear my pulse every ime my heart beats. I have never had a hearing problem but now I have trouble hearing anything normally.

Brief Answer:
do an Audiogram.

Detailed Answer:


I can understand your concern and I am sorry for your situation

As you explain the history if you were my patient for your concern I would recommend you to do a hearing test called Audiogram. After its result, if it is positive the ENT doctor will decide further for the proper treatment it will be needed.

I wish a fast recovery for you.
