It sounds like paper is stuck in my right ear... - Page 2

Ever wonder why Earwigs are called Earwigs?

They burrow into your ears then use those little pincers to eat your brain. Sounds like you've got one o them. Luckily, they're easy to remove. Just use a Vacuum Cleaner.

Ears can get annoyed temporally and then clear up by themselves. If i go for a long drive with the windows open my ears freak out and i can not hear any bass for a few days after. went to the doctor before once and he told me my ears need to rest.

or..

you have water in your ears, i use a cotton swab and yes its safe just go in slowly! and don't talk on the phone and run around the house at the same time.

or..

your ear is telling you that a tooth problem or ear infection is coming..also it could be your getting sick.

take some cold eeze to figure help any colds that may be in their baby stages, give your ears a few days of rest from listening, don't go out in the windy wind or don't have your windows rolled down, use a cotton swab if you want AFTER you shower (or put a tiny drop of Rubbing alcohol in there to dry any moisture up), and see what happens in a few days.

if you get pain then you have an ear infection..and they really really suck!

I called local hospital, person said its likely water in the ear or wax, and not torn ear drum, due to the fact my ear does not hurt or in any pain.

joshatdot,
i highly doubt you eardrum is perforated, considering there is no pain, loss of balance, and your hearing seems fine otherwise.
i would bet there is some debris that is making contact when you move your ear, likely some stray wax or, as schoenberg3 mentioned, a small hair.
get it checked, but i wouldnt panic.

Stop scaring the poor guy..
they sound the same to me...*rub rub rub*

HEH, I didnt think that rubbing my finger & thumb would make much of any noise at all....but I hear it in both ears.

I don't want to use Q-Tips, as they might push whatever it is deeper into my ear canal.

Anyone else have this sensation?

I am going try and setup a ear Dr. appointment tomorrow.
Wax build up. If you are using IEM's this will occur. I had a pair of er6i's and my right ear closed up all together. Scary. I had tro go to the doctor and have him flush my ear. Don't try it yourself. You will only make it worse.

My ears have sounded like this my entire life. If I yawn, swallow, put my finger in my ear, or even move my jaw, I hear the crinkling sound.

It seems pretty normal, so I wouldn't worry about it.

From that same article:

"Nevertheless, being exploratory and omnivorous, earwigs probably do crawl into the human ear; even if they are only looking for a humid crevice in which to hide, such behavior provides a memorable basis for the name."

Ai.

Well this morning the crinkling was less..and after a shower (cleaning my right ear throughly) the crinkling has gone away.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I have that "cringling" sound whenever I yawn or blow through my ears.

Maybe it's no biggie.

I had that for a bit. It ended up being a piece of hair that got into my ear.

I had the same thing, "clicky" sound when I yawned or moved my ear in some way.
I laid on my side and after awhile it felt a little itchy, and some fluid fell out, after that it was gone.

Hope you can fix it too~

Ok, try this. Buy some murine ear drops, with the blue rubber bulb. First rinse the canal with clean warm water. Now put the recommended dose of the ear drops in. You hear the chemical churn as it works on your ear wax. Then drain on a towel, and rinse with warm water a few times and recline so that all water will drain out. It takes quite a while sometimes. Repeat as neccessary. You'll be fine! ;-)

That is the stupidest, most ignorant response ever. Earwigs do not crawl in to your ears and those pinchers are for defense. Please at least do some basic Googling before you open your fool mouth and let everyone know what a dummy you are. 

 

The poster probably has some ear wax in there and needs to get a kit from the local drugstore to flush that stuff out.
