Solutions To Overcome Ear Pain When You Wake Up?
Excuse me doctor, I have a question. This morning I woke up because my ears were sore, felt a throbbing and there was wind in them. I’ve tried the Valsalva technique, holding my ear to the pillow but nothing has changed. What should I do?
From the information you convey, any complaints of ear pain, throbbing, and feeling full can possibly be caused by inflammation or infection in the associated ear. Complaints in your ears may have occurred 1 or 2 days before, but the initial complaints may not bother you, so that in the next few days, these complaints increase and bother you.
Some of the other conditions below can trigger complaints that you feel, such as:
1. trauma to the ear or eardrum
2. complaints of cough or flu that you are currently experiencing, and you may have experienced a few days before
3. swimming where the pressure in your ear increases after swimming activity
4. listening to a continuous sound or boom, such as using earphones or listening to music that is too loud for more than 30 minutes
However, all of this needs to be confirmed directly by your family doctor or your ENT doctor. So that direct examination is needed to establish the diagnosis and confirm the cause. Treatment and medication will be given according to the results obtained.
For now, you can do a number of things, such as continuing the valsalva technique, getting enough rest, avoiding the trigger factors, and you can evaporate warm water on your ear area.
That is the information we can convey, also read sore ears.
