Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. My name isXXXXX completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
It is possible that you have ruptured your ear drum.
The good news? In the vast majority of cases this heals on its own in a few weeks without any treatment.
If, however, the pain gets worse, you have any discharge from your ear or things seem to be getting worse, you should consult with your doctor.
Does this make sense to you?
