Ear Like Blockage And Reduced Hearing?
I want to ask why my ear hurts and it feels like it’s clogged and even my hearing is reduced…. once I went to the health center just to see it…. in fact I was very dizzy… I wonder why my ears yes
Hi Harimikia, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously I informed that the ear or ear is divided into three parts, namely the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. The outer ear consists of the auricle to the eardrum, the middle ear consists of the ossicles, and the inner ear contains the cochlea and semicircular canals, which affect hearing function and balance.
Conditions that may happen to you:
1. Cerumen obturans
Cerumen is a form of body defense to protect the ear and foreign objects. Cerumen is also often referred to as earwax. If the amount of cerumen is too much, it can become a blockage in the ear that interferes with hearing or what is known as cerumen obturans.
2. Otitis externa
Otitis externa is an inflammation of the outer ear, starting from the auricle to the eardrum. Source of infection can be due to too often picking ears or bathing in dirty water such as lakes or rivers.
3. Meniere's disease
Meniere's disease is a disorder that occurs in the inner ear. The things that can be felt are the sensation of spinning or vertigo, the ears feel full, and decreased hearing.
4. BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)
Vertigo or spinning sensation that is felt due to a change in position that affects balance in the inner ear.
To get a more comprehensive picture of your health, you can consult a doctor or an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist. The doctor will conduct an examination in the form of questions, physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed. Things that you can temporarily do are avoid sudden head movements, immediately rest or sit when you feel the spinning sensation, and can use several pillows so that your head is in a higher position. You can also read the articles “Vertigo” and “Serumen Prop” which may also be of help to you. May be useful. Thanks.
