Customer Question
My son got hit...

My son got hit playing basketball on his right ear and immediately said he couldn’t hear out of that ear. No pain other than when he chews it hurts a little he said. Not sure if that will clear up on it’s own? What could of happened?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

He just got hit 2hrs ago. Pain is minimal. It only hurts when he chews or lays in that side
