Ear Flushed Out quote:

Had my left ear flushed out felt like a blow torch and now have vertigo i think totally off balance.

Anybody else experience this and how long does it last?
Ringing is the worst part.
Nurse says give it a couple of days.
Never should have drove home.

I remember it being a little painful while they were doing it but don't recall any side effects. How long has it been since you got this done?

just had mine done few weeks ago. Felt a little uncomfortable during the flush, but man did the ears feel clean after. No side-effects like you've described.

This doesn't sound right at all. I'm no expert but my dad punctured his ear drum and suffered the same issues - I'd get it looked at ASAP.

I've had my ear flushed several times and while it's uncomfortable during the flushing, there should be zero side effects after.

Wow sounds pretty harsh. I might have tried a simple oil-based home treatment first before a serious procedure.

Same here, only side effect I had was noticing how much treble there really is in this world.

Definitely sounds like ruptured ear drum. Have you had tubes in your ears? Should probably see an ENT.

I get this done like 3 times a year. Nothing like this has happened before.

I would be going to the hospital. Likely ruptured ear drum.

Jesus man. Those are classic signs of a torn ear drum. I can't even imagine why the nurse would tell you to wait a couple of days. Get to the hospital ASAP.

Visit family doctor tomorrow for reassessment of your tympanic membrane and external canal.

I just found that out.

Still though, I'd be getting it checked out.

This is where I can only say that I would exercise caution in saying that a guy should go to hospital ASAP.

There are experts in multiple fields here who have always been willing and ready to post a response when necessary to provide advice.

That really means nothing though since we can't look at his ear, we can't look at him, we can't assess the overall picture.

Still though, I'd be getting checked out by your family doc.

I've had to get my right ear flushed out about a dozen times over the years. There were no side effects other than my ear feeling much better. Although it felt like Niagara falls in my ear and I always questioned how this procedure is not perforating the ear drum.

Wow, that doesn't sound pleasant. But it sounds rare judging by some of the posts in here. Sorry I can't contribute much, I have never had it done before, but I'm looking to get it done, I've been thinking about it for awhile.

Where can you get your ear flushed? Just at a regular clinic?

Procedure is safe when no contraindications exist.

This, how does one even come to a conclusion that they need an ear flushed? Are there symptoms or physical signs?

You will know.. it's like when the plane lands and pinch your nose and blow with your mouth closed to unplug the ears for the pop.

And why am i answering this question 2:30 am because
i can't sleep with the room turning over and over.
Feels better upright but laying down forget it.
