Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
I think that you should get the grommet checked out.
You should see your doctor rather than waiting it out so that your ear can be examined.
any idea what the problem might be and what I can do to help?
I think that the problem is that the eustachian tube may be blocked.
and probably the grommet may not be working which is causing your to have the ear pressure and the ear feeling heavy.
yeah, it feels like theres something there and thats what making the crackling
Any more questions?
any thing I can take to clear it up? and also, I saw a doctor last week while i was taking the antibiotics he just said that the grommet was still there and that the eardrum was pink in places I'm just worried now though cause its not clearing up
Are you taking something like sudafed or any decongestant?
Can you enumerate the medications that you are on.
none at the moment
finished the antibiotics on monday
Is your ear still hurting?
What are your symptoms at the present moment?
it feels blocked, sometimes when I move my jaw i hear an echoey sortal kinda like when you put your ear to a shel, muffled hearing
Have you had your ENT doctor have a look at it?
it feels kinda sore but i wouldn't call it pain you know
no i'm in england, so you gotta wait a few months to be reffered and such
If you are not having fever or any ear discharge I would not worry too much
Meanwhile you can take over the counter decongestants that contain pseudoephedrine to help.
would you know which one(s) do specifically?
sorry to keep bothering you
But I am not sure if this is over-the-counter in UK.
okay thank you sir
have a nice day
