Tympanometry

Hello,

When I went to the first ENT 14 months ago, they did a tympanometry test and they found out that my right ear eardrum was over compliant: type Ad.

**************************************** ********** ***********
Type Ad (A deep) suggests a flaccid tympanic membrane, a middle ear system, or a disarticulation of middle ear ossicles. Usually a disarticulation of ossicles results in a compliance peak higher than the recording parameters (ie, off the chart). Compliance peak is -150 to +100 daPa, and immittance is more than 2.5 mmhos.
**************************************** ********** ************

What I noticed since few months is that my right ear bothers me more than my left ear. For example, if I plug my right ear (the bad one), i can handle most of the noises. If I plug my left ear (the good one) then I am very unconfortable.

My hyperacusis specialist was the only one to give a comment on it asking me if I did some diving for example. I didn't do any activities which can create this kind of issue. The first ENT said that it doesn't matter which astonished me.

Does anybody knows more about this type Ad and is there any medical procedure which can fix the compliance.

Lulu
