Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: Ear Popping w/ Dizziness Thereafter


deenosaur - Thu Jun 09, 2005 3:04 pm

Hello Doctor,

Just a couple of days ago, while clearing my nose in the bath, there was a loud single "POP" in my right ear. Immediately after, I lost the hearing of high frequencies and sounds were very muffled. I was hearing through my head, not my ear. At almost the same time, I almost lost my balance and fell. I got worried, The condition did not recover to normality till at least 6 hours.

Thinking it was ok and isolated, just yesterday, I was in the shower again and I experienced the same thing - including the lost of balance!

Each time, there is no pain, just the uncomfortable and "alarming" dizziness and deafness.

Now, everytime, I need to blow my nose, though carefully, I can hear my ear near "POPPING".

Please advise if its normal or if I need to seek immediate medical attention.

Thank you.

Go and visit an ENT specialist immediately. You need to have an otoscpy done which is an examination of the structures inside yur ear which seems t have been damaged judging from your history.
