I have had a crawling sensation in my left ear off and on for 2 years. It started out that I'd feel it only at night when I laid on my left side. Now it comes as goes all day long. Now it's almost constant. It is getting worse and now it feels as if I'm losing my hearing in that ear. Just 2 days ago out of nowhere it sounded like I went into a vacuum. I can still hear, but it sounds like my ears need to pop. Sometimes my ear will hurt, but not like an ear ache. Today for the first time my jaw on that side was sore. I'm worried I'm losing my hearing. I've been on prescription ear drops, nasal spray and now a 10 day antibiotic. I have 6 days left on it and my ear is still not right at all. Nothing seems to be working at all. any suggestions? This is really starting to bother me and I cannot sleep on my right side because my ear starts getting that crawling sensation again. thanks
I have been having some ear problems and whilst researching my own I have learned a lot. To me, it sounds like you have an infection that is affecting your Eustachian Tube. That would affect your hearing and cause problems. As for the ear crawling, I cannot help you there as I know nothing about it.
Tell us any more symptoms you have and maybe somebody (or myself) can tell you more!
