: Hi,
: I've written to this message board several time and i've got some good advice in the past.
: Anyway, about 6 months ago my ears started whistling and hissing, I went through agony at the time thinking I had damaged them but the doctor diagnosed me with having just fluid behing my ear drum and told me to use a nasal spray (the same one as I use for hayfever) it persisted and I ended up going back to him 5 times, followed by an ear specialist. Anyway looking back I think it was probably caused by stress (GCSE's)but about 4 weeks ago I went bowling with my friends (thinking it would be quiet) but was bombarded with loud disco music and left with my ears ringing, which they have been doing since. My ears were sensitive to sound with the whistling, now they are even worse, I am worried that I may have damaged them. Then, I went swimming about two days ago and after getting water in them, my left ear made a noise when I walked. I ignored it thinking it would go away when I went to sleep and would drain out. Now the noise has gone but my left ear is really aching when I walk and If its still got a bit of water in it, I don't know how to get it out. Please help me anybody, and tell me whats wrong with me!

Two different things going on Joe. The whisling etc is probably tintinitis. There are some good sites for information, the bad news is no cure for it at this time. The wet stuff in your ear is probably a swimmers ear infection, caused by pseudomonas bacteria. Check the site under ear infections and see if this sounds the same. They have an ear drop that stops it real fast if that is the problem.
