Ear Echoing
Hi there,

For the last few years, every now and then my ears tend to echo. I know it sounds odd, but I can't hear what I'm saying at times because when I speak it's so loud in my ear. I don't think it can be fluid in the ear because its an intermittent problem thats been going on for at least 4 years.

Please help.
Many Thanks
Tienkie

Hallo Tienkie
You have to let a ENT surgeon look at your ears - you may need to get Grommets ( small tubes that allow air into the middle ear) Your middle ear may not be ventilating properly.
