Ear problem

Hi Doc, What can be the problem? My left ear seems to be very extremly sensitive. It doesnt pain but sometimes the best way to explain its like the vibration you hear when loud music is played in a car. The vibration in my ear only happens sometimes. I avoid listening to loud music and even using ear plugs. The other day putting my head down to the water tap the noise of the water opening wide made that funny vibration noise in my ear and thats the only time it slightly pains.

Dear Sammy

It is important that you have that ear looked at. You can start with a visit to your GP, who can then refer you if further evaluation is needed. I would also strongly recommend that you have a full hearing evaluation by an Audiologist. If you don't know of someone in your area, then please let me know and i will gladly refer you (izabellepieterse@gmail.com)

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
