sudden simptoms

About 4 days ago i noticed that in the mornings and like today in the afternoon i have this strange " feeling"  in my ears.im 41 this year.Now this feels the same to me like if you were in a very loud place where the music was very loud,and you go outiside!That sound like someone is either speaking to loudly or to softly!And a few days i also noticed that theres a loud thumping in my ears,like when i was pregnant and the bloodflow increase,and it sounds like some-ones music is too loud and you only hear the drums.Today when i went for a nap with my little girl i also noticed a " suising"  in my ears.I just wanne tell my kids to shhhhh like everything is hiper sensitive.I just realised today that al of these must have started the same time,and maybe they are connected!Whats wrong,i might be 4-5 days now!?should i see my Dr or a ear doctor?Thankyou

Hi Tasja!

Based on a detailed review of your concerns, it is imperative that you visit an Audiologist and an Ear Nose and Throat {ENT} specialist, as a multidisciplinary approach would be most appropriate. Based on a speculation of your findings, it could possibly be tinnitus and a probable underlying abnormal growth in loudness. If you experience even slightest discomfort or pain, please do not delay in arranging a consult with the above mentioned health professionals. However, irrespective, please consult with the above professionals for a proper diagnosis upon consultation, without delay.

Kind regards...

My linkeroor reeds 3 weke toe
Suising in oor
Gehoor swakker
Die gevoel van wanneer jy swem en daar water in ore is
