Causes of Fluid in Adult Ears By Janelle Vaesa Fluid in the ear can cause pain, dizziness and make it difficult for individuals to participate in daily activities. Most often children are the ones who are diagnosed with ear infections; however, it can occur in adults. Fluid in the ear often goes away on its own and medications can be prescribed.
Fluid behind eardrum, known medically as otitis media with effusion (OME), is the accumulation of fluid, often in the middle of the ear, with no sign or other symptoms of an ear infection. This can occur in one or both ears, and can sometimes last for prolonged periods of time, although this is more often the case in adults than in children.
Went to my Dr. for ringing in my ears. No pain, but the ringing is so loud, it has created som hearing loss, my Dr.. looked in my ears and said, there was fluid behind my eardrum in both ears, she stated it was from allergies, and there was some drainage in the back of my throat. I was surprised, because I have no other symptoms.Author: Iliriana Bisha Tagani.
Earache, No Infection (Adult) Earaches can happen without an infection. This occurs when air and fluid build up behind the eardrum causing a feeling of fullness and discomfort and reduced hearing. This is called otitis media with effusion (OME) or serous otitis media. It means there is fluid in the middle ear.
