Good evening, I do have following question: yesterday morning

Resolved Question:

Good evening, I do have following question:
yesterday morning after I woke up, I realized a kind of pressure, like beeing under water associated with a loud humming-hissing sound on my right ear and I felt that I could not hear properly, because of the pressure. The pressure has gone now, but the sound ist still there, not as loud as it initially was. It is something to be worrried about?

Hi there,These symptoms are likely due to the eustachian tube inflammation causing the increased pressure in the middle ear cavity.There may have been ear effusion or fluid accumulation as well.Viral infection and seasonal allergies can cause this commonly.Not concerning.The symptoms will gradually improve over next few days.You can try a steroid nasal spray daily.Fluticasone nasal spray is over the counter and can be used 2 sprays each nostril daily for next 2 weeks or whenever the symptoms subside.

Would it be supportive/advisable to take Gingko biloba tablets and Aspirin?

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.
You can take ginkgo biloba which can be helpful.Avoid aspirin as it can cause ringing in the ears as side effect.Best wishes

Hi. You shouldn't try to treat this on your own--either with ginko biloba or a steroid nasal spray. You need to have you doctor evaluate you for possible serious ear problems and you might even risk hearing loss
