Hi,
This condition is called Tinitus aurium.
It is likely that you might have some problem in the middle ear,there may be infection in the middle ear, some swelling in the ear.
If after the treatment if you do not get relief you consult ENT specialist for further investigations.

I ent to a dr who told me I had no blockage inside my ear and that it was just maybe air moving and some mucus and he provided me with a nasal spray , actisoufre. I am using it now but still have a slight feeling of blockage and have started to have an ear ache since yesterday, what should I do? Thank you,

My ears were having pressure like riding on a plane. The pressure was worse in the lower level of my house. I thought it could have been from some type of gas leak since they are changing the lines in my backyard. Can gas cause air pressure to change?

Hello, I was wondering if there may be something wrong with my ear/s? My ears spontaneously feel as if there is an air bubble or something in there, and I try to yawn, which usually works with air pressure when you go on a flight for example, but it doesn t help. It comes and goes and is very random. Most of the time it is painful. Do you have any theories as to what this may be? Thank you for your time.

Age 37, height 5'6, weight 140. No allergies to medication. Never had surgery. Currently not taking medication nor birth control. I injured my left ear while surfing today. I now have muffled hearing. Also, when I pinch my nose and blow I can hear air coming out of my ear my neighboor heard it too. He said it sounded like bubles. When I put in ear drops to get ride of the water (95% alcohol) it hurt a lot. It felt like a severe burning sensation. How should I treat? I am a flight atttendant and I have to work the day after tomorrow. Am I going to be OK to be in the pressurized environment of the airplane

39 yom CC: L ear. PMH: Healthy. I have small, tortuous ear canals so I get semi-frequent ear infections. When I do I irrigate my ear with 50/50 H20/H2O2 and then apply Cipro ear drops. Unfortunately, I'm out of Cipro ear drops. Any reason I can't gently apply triple antibiotic ointment via Q-tip instead? Yes, I know. Never insert a Q-tip in your ear but I promise not to ram it in like mongo. I don't want to drive 30 miles and pay $60 for an office visit just to get an Rx. So the question is whether or not triple antibiotic ointment will work. Thanks in advance!
