Ear gets blocked and started ringing while laying down. What should I do?

Every time I lay down on my right side, my ear gets blocked and starts ringing. I don t have a cold or anything and also, there s no wax. I used this wax removal fluid which didn t exactly help. This has been going on for a while. I feel like i can t really hear out of my right ear and I m getting a little nervous about that.

HI I have gone through your mail, I am suspecting probably you are having some problum in your internal ear or at the internal acoustic meatus,so you are adviced to go for some investigations like;(1) Pure tone audiometry, (2) Impedance Audiometry,(3) C.T.Scan of ear H.R.C.T. These are the basic investigations which will give some clue to diagnose your case.Thanks.

hello dear
first of all dont be worry , your problem seem to be caused by ear wax , some times when you try to clean your ear by cleaning sticks you push the wax to your ear drum and the wax will stuck there and you get blocked ear , using wax removal fluids in this condition well increase the feeling of blocked ear
So i recomed you to have a ear examination by otoscope at your doctor, and it is simple thing to treat
take care........
