Clogged ears are often due to impacted earwax. If you have experienced muffled hearing, your ears itching, or a plugged feeling in your ears, then earwax could be the cause. We can safely and effectively remove impacted earwax in office.
Ear infections can worsen the symptoms of vertigo, dizziness, or balance disorders. Because our sense of balance comes from within the inner ear, a disruption – such as an ear infection – can cause balance problems to temporary worsen.
Hearing loss affects everyone differently. For some people, they may only have hearing loss in one ear while other’s experience it in both ears. No matter how hearing loss affects you, it’s important to wear binaural (two) hearing aids. Wearing two aids will ensure you can hear all the sounds around you and that one ear doesn’t worsen.
Symptoms of inner ear problems include:
- Feelings of dizziness
- Hearing loss
- Feeling unsteady on your feet
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
