I have been experiencing noise in my ear. I went

I have been experiencing noise in my ear. I went to the ENT today and he said I have 3 hairs laying on my ear drum which is causing the noise in m year. He couldndt pull them out but he gave me some ear drops that supposedly will wash the hairs away. Is this a common thing? I'm afraid that my hairs may not wash away.

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.

Hello, My name is Keyron Smith, my symptom is in my Left year. It kinda feels like a Tinnitus/ ETD/ Eardrum Rupture, all at once. Instead of the ringing, its just a Crackling noise. I am not sick, so there is not Mucus in my throat. I feel as if every time i hiccup, or yawn there is a extreme stream of pain that dissipates shortly less then a minute. But a small aching pain that follow it lasting a very long time. How did i get this problem? my dog licked my ear and i didn t clean it. at first it was just hard to hear so i thought maybe it was a build up of ear wax so.. here i am cleaning my ear with an over the counter product called ERO i take the syringe that comes with the box and remove the ear wax. I ended up working the small little syringe deeper and deeper until i got to (what i think is the eardrum im not sure) but i continued to remove the ear wax out my ear. I struck something some little wall or something in my ear with the syringe. Now that i continued to use ERO i completely drained my ear with ear wax but now me doing that i know i damaged something. Now i can hardly hear/ small continuous pain/ and ripping/crackling sound keeps going in my ear. It hurts when i hiccup or burp, so i know it has to deal with the pressure in my ear. I read to ease the pain is to use something hot and dry, so im doing this. But is there any over the counter medicine that will help me get my ear better? or some kinda syrup to insert in my ear to help heal it? the pain that i measure 1/10 is when i hiccup or burp its a 9 for like 5 or 10 seconds. but as it hurts now it will be a continuous 3 thats still going even now. it started yesterday (4/15/2014) and it hurts more now (4/16/2014) trying to clean my ear as i do it. the pain is cruel.. so please help if u can..

Last night I went to bed, and within a few minutes I felt an almost flush feeling in my ear. I got up to look in the mirror and had blood running down the side of my face coming from my ear. I tried to clean it and soaked up approx. 10-15 q tips, before it seemed to be clean. Went back to bed within 5 minutes it happened again, mire blood running from ear. If I put a q tip in my ear now there is still some bood but not as much as before. I haven t had any injury, haven t been exposed to loud noise, no flights, scuba, swimming or other pressure or temp changes. Was not picking or cleaning it, and only used q tips after it started bleeding.Also no pain, although now does feel a bit like I have been swimming and got water in my ear but I haven t. Any idea what might be causing this? Thank you in advance for an help -Maggie
