I hear bubbling noises in my left ear. What is this ?

Whenever I listen to music in that ear through earphones, no matter how low it is, it feels as if there are bubbles inside my ear. When I take off the earphone, the bubbles immediately stop. I ve also noticed I cannot hear as well out of my left ear.

your history is suggestive of probably otitis media, even though trivial causes like wax, fungal infection has to be ruled out first
pl consult an ENT surgeon and do a pure tone audiogram to assess your hearing

Thank you for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

By the description of your symptoms it seems like you might be having

1. Middle ear infection.
2. Wax in the ear canal.
3. Sensitive Tympanic membrane (Hyperacusis).

I suggest you to please consult your ENT doctor for a physical exam and appropriate treatment.

I Hope I have answered all your queries.

Do get back to me if you have any further queries.
