Middle ear infection

I suffered from a middle ear infection last year. I am currently experiencing the same symptoms since I have been listening with my earphones on my cellphone? Do you think this is related?

Dear Middle ear infection

There is a possibility that the use of insert earphones can cause irritation in the outer ear. I don't think it is very likely that it will influence your middle ear. If you are however concerned about middle ear infection, please see your GP as soon as possible and make sure that everything is in order. One should never neglect an ear infection.

Please let me know if you need any further information

My apologies for the late reply, we have been experiencing some technical problems
