Hello. I have been hearing vibrations in my right ear for almost one week now 24/7. I do not have any ringing nor do I have pain yet. Also I do not have a fever. I feel fatigued because of the lightheadedness and dizzeness that I have. I understand that the vibrations that I have been hearing cause the dizziness. I had a cold last week. I took afrin nasal spray for the first time in my life. I took it while my face was facing forward. Afterwards I learned that the face must face downward. Also I may have blowing my nose too hard. The noise has is not as loud as it used to be.
I have been reading that the ear heals itself. Will this problem heal itself? What could this ear problem be? This problem has a created a semi handicapped life for me.View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I went to visit the doctor as you suggested. He said that I may have an inner ear infection but since he could not see the inner ear he could not say for sure. He said that if it is an inner ear virus infection it will take about two weeks to heal. He reccommended cleaning out the ear with water because I had a lot of ear wax in the ear. After I had my ear cleaned he said that the middle ear looked good. Today I believe that I feel 50 percent better. I believe that the ear cleaning helped to heal my condition. I believe that if I had both ears cleaned as good as possible that may help even more. I am wondering if the Afrin nose spray chemicals got stuck in my ears and may be causing this. Have you ever heard of patients negative symptoms going away after having their ears cleaned? Have you ever heard of chemicals from nasal spray getting stuck in someones ear and causing this problem? Thank you.View Thread
