Ear Ache

I have sort of a ' heavy'  feeling in my left ear. It is not actually an ache, but more a sensation. Can you please advise what I can use as the doctor saw nothing in my ear.
Thank you

Dear Mary

There are a lot of possibilities for the feeling that you describe and it is important to get to the root of it. If you have already seen your GP, it will be advisable to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. A few possibilities are; wax, fluid build-up, infection, allergies or it could be a symptom of something else. If you don't know of a good ENT in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you (izabelle@widex.co.za).

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
