    Echoing in my Left Ear
    Vikramvxs posted:

    Hi All

    I had pain and echoing (hearing my own voice) in my left ear 2 weeks ago and I saw my GP and she said I had an ear infection and gave me Amoxicillin 250mg 3 times a day for 5 days. It's been a week I finished my dosage my ear pain is gone but my echoing problem is partially cured, I have tried closing my nose mouth and blowing air.

    But it still seems to be echoing in my left ear, does it gradually recover by its self or should I be concerned please advice
    Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
    You may have a patulous (open) Eustachian tube. There is a good chance this will self-resolve in time, but unfortunately, there is no way to determine when. You would need to see an ENT specialist if those symptoms persist, but you may want to give it a few more weeks to resolve on its own.
