knock to ear

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
A while back I had a knock to the ear which subsconsequently leaded to me having partial hearing loss for 1-3 days. Then it was grand and hearing returned to normal. Same thing then happened again two months ago, but only lasted around an hour.

Was this normal ( for hearing to go partially after a knock to the ear), and is it serious?

Also something I noticed was that hearing loss occured in both ears as well as the ear that wasn't knocked.

Thanks.

    I suggest that with hearing loss after a blow to the head you should see your GP or even go to A&E.

    Perhaps, but it was some time ago. Also, thought I might as well mention this, it was a palm to the side of head.

    But it still resulted in hearing lost. I really think you should see your GP.

    i'd say go to the doctors as well as you don't know what damage has been done

    Any hearing loss should really be checked out - it's one of those things that might not automatically get better without some medical help.

    Ok thanks for replies. Could it be serious? I have been trying to look it up on the net but haven't found much on it.

    Could be serious, might not be serious - main thing is you won't know till it's checked :)
