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.
