Could be something as simple as impacted ear wax. Been there, done that. See the doctor. This is probably easily fixed.

I hope you find out what's making your ears ring or echo. Let us know what the doctor says it is.

Good to hear you're bike riding a lot...much better than computer games!

I also had the same thing for 4 days - echoing, then total deafness in one ear. After a small clump of wax came out in the shower, it was back to normal. Try directing some hot water at the ear.

My mom also had total deafness due to wax buildup.

I'm not going to the doctors yet. I will try the remedies. I just did yahoo search ask yahoo. And I typed in" left ear clogged. Got a lot of good answers. I usually never do that. But my good friend always told me see fix your self before you go doctors. Anyway gas is very expensive in my Dr.'s office is 45 min. away. I got a lot of suggestion on the website. A lot of people thinks it's buildup wax just like you said here and gave me some tips. On how to treat it. I have my therapist today. After that I will go to the pharmacy and get things for my ear clogged my left ear. I could not even sleep tonight because of the clogged of the ear. It doesn't hurt, but one person thought it was infection. Yes I do get a lot infection in my ears. Always did since I was a baby in childhood, even as a adult. I'm now on the 5 megs lowered my Internet speed on cable because a lot cheaper. I have to think about the economy is getting hard and need food, the 5 meg still works good with my PC games and my Oma, I'll be saving $5.00off my Internet bill. Lately they don't give me enough food stamps and I don't make enough money to get food, but I've been trying something new. When I do food shop I buy all the storebrand stuff lot cheaper. I'm learning. Mountain bike Den

There is also an inexpensive ear cleaning kit with a special syringe you can try (it's sorta messy but it works on wax buildup.) You can use diluted hydrogen peroxide or just warm water.

I think they also have a coupon site online, and maybe you can print them off at the library, Den. I used to have so much fun with coupons. There are actually people who buy a ton of stuff just with coupons!! You have to pick out only things you would use though. It might be great to try this. I used to bring them to the store when it was coupons were big in my younger days. I would get some that were double coupons, too! Safeway has a program where you can get gas 10 cents off around here if you spend $50.00, and often many sales. Check the newspaper for sale items, too. You can save a lot of money that way.I also loved to enter contests,and actually won some prizes. That was when I was in my 20's.

Den:

Sometimes home treatments work to remove impacted ear wax and sometimes they do not.

I had a similar problem in my left ear in early March. Loss of hearing and "echoing". My family physician made several attempts to remove the ear wax by flushing the ear. It was not successful and I was referred to an ear specialist. It was necessary for him to use an instrument called a curette and suction to remove the impaction.

After it was removed, my hearing was fine. He recommended that I use an eye dropper and place a few drops of undiluted hydrogen peroxide in each ear once per week. After the peroxide drops are in the ear, you lay down for about five minutes to let the peroxide do its thing. Then, repeat in the other ear.

Never use Q-Tips and/or ball-type syringes. You can damage your ears.
