Take the Poll

So long story short, should I feel confident about not seeing an ENT specialist (at least not immediately)? If the symptoms are meant to naturally go away, how long should I wait before "seeing an ENT" might be a good option?
  • You should see an ENT professional immediately.
  • Wait about a week to see if the noise goes away, then an ENT.
  • See an ENT specialist no earlier than 2 weeks if the noise stays.
  • If nothing changes after 1 month, I would worry and see an ENT.
  • I wouldn't see an ENT expert ever for this. Be confident!
