Am I losing my hearing?
« on: February 21, 2014, 11:27:47 PM »
I was just sitting around when suddenly I lost most of my hearing in my left ear, and heard a loud screeching sound. This only lasted for a couple of seconds, and my hearing is totally normal now, but is this a sign that I'm going deaf soon? Thinking of rushing to the hospital.

Don't rush to the hospital, but have a doctor look at it. It may just be wax.

Wax especially if you use Q-tips quite a bit...

If you have Hydrogen Peroxide, I suggest taking a cap full and lie on your side, and pour a cap full in your ear, to allow it to penetrate pretty deep. This will help with that problem.

Sometimes I get ringing in my ears but my left ear isn't as well hearing as my other one, I might try tmyelf.

Might save you a doctor's visit.

Sometimes, when I'm home alone, I fill my bathtub with tomato sauce and pretend I'm a meatball.

I get that all the time - I always thought it was just wax shifting or something.   It feels like your hearing goes out, then it slowly returns with that really loud humming?  Or it feels like someone cupped their hands over one or both ears real hard and then the humming starts?  I've been getting that for years and years and years here and there - my hearing is fine.   YOU are fine.
