Hello doctor,

I am an 18-year-old boy weighing 147.71 lb and 5 feet and 8 inches in height. I feel a vibration in my left ear when I do push-ups, and it becomes hard for me to do because I have to apply more force. Every day when I wake up, I find my ear blocked. Whenever I sleep, turning my head to the left, the same happens; it gets blocked. Whenever I go to a noisy place or when someone shouts loudly, I start feeling the same vibration. Kindly advise.

You must get an otoscopic ear examination with pure tone audiogram testing done. You could be having glue ear or serous otitis media. This needs treatment medically at the most. The symptoms would go away with proper treatment. It is advisable to get a professional consult, and then we can help you regarding it by giving a second opinion.
