Type of Ear Problems
Hearing loss is a pervasive medical condition that affects the auditory system and can range from mild to profound. It occurs when sound waves are not successfully transmitted to the brain, resulting in difficulty hearing and understanding speech.
Tinnitus is a serious condition in which patients experience ringing, buzzing, or humming noises in their ears. These sounds exist without any external source and can become quite irritating for the patient
Earache, also known as otalgia or otic pain, is a symptom of infection or injury of the inner, middle, or outer parts of the ear. It is typically characterized by uncomfortable sensations such as a dull ache in the inner ear, sharp pains along the outer ear, an overall pressure in both ears and sometimes even neck pain.
Fluid from the ear
Fluid from the ear, also known as otorrhea, is a condition marked by the abnormal flow of blood, lymphatic fluid and/or other body fluids from the eardrum. It can cause discomfort, hearing loss and infection.
An ear infection, also known as otitis media, is an inflammation of the inner, middle or outer ear caused by bacteria or viruses. Ear infections can be either acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long-term).
Meniere’s disease is an inner ear disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear. It is believed to arise from fluid buildup in the inner ear resulting in disturbances in vestibular nerve activity.
