Cant hear out of my left ear..
    #2347183 - 02/17/04 08:35 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

A couple of days ago after I hopped out of the shower I was cleaning my ears when I accidently pushed the q-tip in too far and got a quick sort of sharp pain in my ear... After that I could barley hear out of that ear but i figured it come back in like a day but its been like 3-4 days and I still can barley hear out of it. Whenever I talk I cant really hear myself in my head and it's starting to worry me. Any suggestions before I end up going to see a doctor ?

Go to the doctor immediately...could be a perforated eardrum. It's not something to take lightly...I'd recommend seeing a doctor or immediate care center or clinic...

Yes, doctor as soon as possible. It could have been that you pushed a peice of earwax to the back... they can clean it out properly if that is the case.
Sometimes is easier to ignore a problem than it is to tackle it, this could be serious.

Sounds exactly like a popped drum.. =\ sorry, but chances are you'll never hear out that ear again.

Don't use q-tips to clean your ears, there are special washes you can buy to do it.. Its not worth the risk to save a little money =\

GO TO DOCTOR NOW...seriously. my buddy just did the same thing and he went to the doctor the next day because his ear was killing him. the docotor took a look and said it was a partially perforated eardrum or something like that and it triggered an ear infection. he went on some pain meds for a week or so but i'd say get to the doctor NOW cause that is your only hope. don't try to sit and wait injuries...5 weeks ago i went for a jog and when i came back my knee was hurting. i didn't go to the doctor cause i'm stubborn so 4 weeks later i was still limping around. every time i let my leg hang it felt like it was popping out of the knee joint. finally it is getting better but it is still a little sketchy. i could have seriously done some bad damage and made it worse by not getting it checked out. good luck my friend.

I did the same thing maybe 7 years back... poked too hard while cleaning my ear, and went deaf in it. I went to the doctor, had him look at it. He told me that it could have caused permanent deafness, but the perforation wasn't so deep, and so after a week or two the hearing came back. I don't know so much about ear science, but I remember him talking about perhaps stiching the eardrum, if the wound did not heal by itself... I'd say go to the doctor, as others have suggested, and hope for the best...

About the same thing happened to my friend. He blew his ear drum by pinching his nose and blowing as hard as he could, so the air blew out of one of his ears (destroying the ear drum). He said it everything was fine again after some time... I dont know how long it took, but everything was fine in the end.

I went to a doctor earlier today and he said I have like a huge bruise/hemorage in my ear and I have to take anti-biotics for a week and if that doesnt help I should see an ear specialist to see if they can do anything.. And like many of you said he told me I might not be able to hear so well in that ear if the anti-biotics dont work..

I wish somebody would have told me about not using q-tips. But ohwell atleast I can still somewhat hear out of it.

Thanks to everyone who told me to goto the doctor right away!
