    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi, My eardrums were ruptured during a flight on 10th Feb 2013, I have lost most of my hearing. I felt extreme pain around my ears, especially behind the ears I just got my ear checked by my family doctor, and she said that my right ear seemed to be fine, but I still can't hear from right ear. I am only on Amoxil. A still hear the painful ringing sound all the time. I never had any ear problem before, except that I have some sinusitus before traveling, but it was not that bad.

    Since the date of your injury is a few weeks from now, do you mean last year (2012)?

    Have you seen an ENT specialist? If you are still having hearing problems a year later, you most definitely need to see a specialist.
