Hello, I have had this problem on the left ear area and was hoping someone could give me a bit of insight on what it could possibly be. I have been dealing with this for about 6 months now.

Here are my symptoms: Dull achy feeling in my left ear. Swollen feeling on lower left cheek under my left ear. (I find myself biting the inside of my cheek to try and relieve the sensation.) I also have a head achy feeling around my left temple. Also some dizziness

The biggest thing though that has me perplexed is the following: Whenever I hear a sound, my left ear reacts by making a static like or bubbly sound. For instance, if my dog barks, my ear makes that sound after each and every one of his barks. If I am talking on the phone using my right ear, as the person on the other end talks to me, my left ear is making those “static like” sounds.

Could I have damaged my inner ear? Why the swollen feeling in my cheek though???I have used deborox to try and clear out anything that may be in there but that just ends up making the inside of my ear canal sore.

Anyone ever experience this or have any ideas?


Thanks!
:)

  • Sounds like you have an middle or inner ear infection or disease. You may also have a small hole in your eardrum that is not healing well. The sound you hear may be due to fluid in the middle ear or disease. I suggest you see an ENT doctor as soon as you can.
