Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 11 months ago.
Maria thanks a lot for your input. Yes it does sounds like congestion or some fluid behind your ear drum. Usually it happens due to dysfunction or congestion of the ear tube present behind the nose. Till the time this congestion is present, yes it can interfere with your hearing test but this congestion goes away with treatment and i have few suggestions to enhance the recovery. Tab Sudafed twice daily for ten days along with xylometazoline nasal spray 2 puffs thrice daily for five days are excellent in reliving the problem. Both are available over the counter. Lastly do take steam inhalation with menthol drops twice daily. If problem persist then see ENT and get your tympanometry test to proceed further but hopefully you will feel better soon. It takes around 10 to 14 days to get rid of this congestion in most of the cases. I wish you good luck that you get well soon, please ask if you have any question because our discussion always remains open so you can always ask more till you are satisfied, You can click the smiley to rate the answer.

Thank you for ur help, my hearing test is for a job that I applied so can I fail the test if this don't go away. Thank you
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 11 months ago.
Maria there are two types of hearing loss. One is conductive loss and other is sensorineural loss. For job purposes we are concerned with sensorineural loss because it has no treatment. In your case even if some haring loss is detected it will be conductive type. Conductive loss is almost always treatable so for job purposes it doesn't matter. So don't loose hope, you are going to clear it in either case. I wish you good luck that you get well soon, please ask if you have any question because our discussion always remains open so you can always ask more till you are satisfied, You can click the smiley to rate the answer.
