Ear fullness

Hi, I've been struggling with what I thought was water in my ear after washing my hair in the bath. Some of the water came out but I still had this "fullness" feeling in my ear for weeks. This morning when I woke it is suddenly worse so that I struggle to hear, I also have a ringing sound in my ear it's starting to get painful and my neck is also very stiff and sore. Should I see a doctor or can I treat this at home?

Dear Linda,

I would recommend that you see a doctor or Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. It may be a middle ear infection that needs to be treated.
