Question: Ear Problems

Saberwolf - Sun Jun 20, 2004 10:17 pm

I'm a 24yr old Male. I have a problem with my hearing. When I lie down on my Right or Left side to sleep my ears fill up with Fluid and I am unable to hear. After I have sat up my ears drain and I have no problems. I thought it might be my teeth I still have my Wisdom teeth in but they do not cause me any discomfort. Is there something that can help with this? Please Let Me Know.....

I think you need to get your ears checked. If for example the examination reveals too much wax in your ears then the doctor will clean them for you.
