Water in my ears
« on: March 03, 2012, 12:27:58 PM »
Anyone of you ever hear or feel like there is water in your ears, I had this for a few months now, and it's kinda annoying, if I turn my head one way I hear water, or some type of congestion, could this be waxx, or some kinda cold  :-[

If its water , there is a over the counter drop called swim ear that will help in some cases . 

I use it when I scuba dive and it works everytime for me .

Thanks Jeff, I'm currently on ass-loads of antibiotics for my tummy, so if this is some kinda infection or congestion, I'm sure is will clear up soon, I had this way back in the dark ages of AIDS in 90' or 91
and I was giving k-flex for about 10 days, and it cleared it right up......then it went to the lungs and turned into
PCP, so I was kinda worried  :-[

Hey Dennis,

It probably wouldn't hurt ( if you haven't done it in awhile),  To go to Walgreens and pick up one of those earwax removal kits. I use one of these several times a year, and if there is a wax build up, this product works great:

With all those antibiotics that you taking, are you having some daily yogurt?

Thanks Ray, back in the early 90s (when I had real good health Ins.) I had to have my ears professionally cleaned the ear waxx got so bad, I had hearing problems........

yeah, I got Ice-cream, and some real nice cheese, that seems to help somewhat......thank you for the ear wax tip, I'll have to go buy some of this..

 my current Health Ins. really doesn't cover much, I have lotta of out-of-pocket-cost  :-[

when I had both of my ears clogged up, I had to get them drained by an ENT and then have tubes put in, thats how bad it got for me. Sometimes your natural drainage doesn't work.

I had ear drainage problems about 10 or so years ago.  They put tubes in.  Overtime, the tube in the left ear fell out on its own.  The one in the right ear did not. It's still there 10 years later. The Doctor said there is nothing to be concerned about as the canal still looks healthy and I don't feel anything.

Funny though, about 5 years ago I had an ear infection in the left ear with balance issues.  Took antibiotics and it cleared up.

The hearing in both ears is fine.

Go figure.

I've had wax problems in my ears.  I also wear ear plugs at night so I'm sure that doesn't help, but I had problems even before then.  I've had my ears purged by doctors twice.  All I remember is a huge metal syringe and a flood of water and then the wax plugs came out about the size of a pencil eraser.  I never noticed a feeling of water in my ear.  I think I heard something once about liquid in the ear that causes balance, not sure.  Last time I took a bubble bath I stuck my head under water for a few minutes, mostly up to my ears and my nose was out of the water, after that the wax that I had built up came out.

I have  regular  visits to my Ear/nose   Dr.. have had  "wax " problems since  childhood... he  "vacuums" them   every 6 months  but in between  about  once a week  he  told me to use a few  drops of Hydrogen Peroxide...wait till the "fizzing" stops  and rinse with warm  water....( usually  just stand in the  shower)feels  weird  but clears  the passage  and works  till I get Vacuumed again..
