I have had an ear leak for about 7 or 8 years now it is at night in my right ear only

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I have chronic sinus for about 30 years. About 7 or 8 years ago I had an ear infection (right ear) that was treated with medicine. It was then the leakage started first occasionally and today it is daily.

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

Other than my leakage in the right ear I am in good health. I have seen several ENT doctors , had an MRI and they say it is nothing to worry about but it does wake me some nights

Thank you for your question.

Can you please let me know what the color of the leak is?

Did the ENT examine your ear from the inside and see a hole in your eardrum?

Please let me know.

Regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
