ear pain: causes and symptoms
An earache or ear pain can impact patients of all ages and range from dull discomfort to sharp, severe irritation. Earaches are usually caused by an ear infection, inflammation, injury, changes in pressure, water trapped in the ear, or perforated eardrum. Other factors, such as earwax buildup and getting a foreign object stuck inside the ear, can also result in pain. Signs and symptoms of ear discomfort usually include impaired hearing, fluid drainage, muffled hearing, loss of balance, fever, and tugging at the ear. Cross Timbers ENT provides individualized care to Midlothian, Arlington, and Mansfield, TX patients to ensure optimal ear health. Contact our office today to get the relief you need.

"Ear Pain Problem - My Mother is deaf in her left and has partial hearing loss in her right ear. For the past year and half her right ear been hurting her but the 2 ENT specialists she saw could not figure out the problem. They performed several tests, but the doctors just couldn't provide an answer. Dr. Jonathan Wu examined my Mother and was able to determine what the issue was and explained the reason for her pain. He was patient, extremely informative and thorough. We are so happy we scheduled an appointment with him. His staff is also very friendly.
