    Default Dislocated ear bones

    So I know that's not the correct terminology but that's all I have to go on right now. (it's the bones in the middle ear)

    Has anyone experienced this and had the bones fixed/removed?
    Can anyone give me more info?
    I can't find much on google.

    I've been partially deaf in my left ear for 12 months since I had a bad car accident. Today I seen an Audiologist for some tests after still having so many issues and the gp just looking in my ears repeatedly. Turns out I can't hear for ****. Which I knew but I didn't realize the severity or seriousness. They were talking about bone replacement and hearing aids!

    I'm freaking out

    I'd like to know more.
    I have hearing loss in both ears and got hearing aids at 20, but never use them. My mum is a bit patchy on details, but tells me I was in a car accident at one and had to see a specialist for my ears for a while afterwards.
    How did they tell the bones are dislocated?
    I also get ear aches as soon as I go in wind and wonder if that is related...

    I had a series of hearing tests and a pressure test thingy (sorry I have no idea about ears at all!)

    Have you had a hearing test since being an adult? I'd go see an audiologist or ENT. I have to see the ENT about the procedure etc.

    It happens from being hit in the head. I was hit in the face quite severely by my cars airbag.
