Important Signs You Need To See An Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist by nishimj16(f): 5:08pm On Jan 05, 2021
Discomforts on the head and neck region come in a myriad of shapes. Even though allergies and occasional breathing issues are natural, seeing an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist like Dr. Dennis Chua is imperative(https://drdennischua.com/) if the symptoms persist or don't seem to subside even with OTC medications.
Also known as Otaryngologists, these doctors specialize in treating conditions of the ears, nose, and throat region. They also treat conditions affecting areas of the brain linked to the ear, nose, and throat.
Can you see an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) Specialist without a Referral?
Usually, it is recommendable that you only visit specialists like, in this case, an ENT specialist with a referral from your GP. This may be beneficial to you in terms of the insurance.
Insurance mostly requires a referral if you want the appointment to be covered by your insurance. From an ENT's perspective, a referral may be necessary to ensure that they only help patients who need their attention the most and minimize wait time for critical conditions.
However, that doesn't imply that you must have a referral to see your Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) specialist. There are instances when you can see and even get your ENT specialist's services without a referral. Perhaps your only concern would be that you may need to pay up for the services upfront.
If you're contemplating visiting an ear, nose, and throat specialist, here are the telltale signs you must not assume.
• Sore Throat Complications
You may get a sore throat from allergic reactions or infections. Apart from the fact that the condition may not only cause pain, it may also make communication difficult.
There are basic medications that your GP may prescribe to manage throat conditions like Strep throat [https://www.webmd.com/oral-health/understanding-strep-throat-basics#1]or the pain that may come due to an infection. If the medicines don't help or the condition only gets severe, you should see a qualified ear, nose, and throat doctor.
Using their diverse knowledge and understanding of the conditions affecting the throat, for example, upper digestive issues, they will assess your condition. From their diagnosis, they may recommend operations or medications to help manage the pain and inflammation to make you feel comfortable.
• Ear Infections or Disorders
You may have at one time experienced mild ear pain. Ideally, the pain ought to subside on its own or easily be managed by medications your primary care doctor may recommend if it isn't caused by a severe condition.
However, if you continually develop ear infections, something may be amiss somewhere. Therefore your best bet would be to book an appointment with a board-certified ear, nose, and throat doctor.
If you suspect that you have a chronic ear infection, here are a few signs you may need to take seriously.
I. Fluid drains and does not entirely stop or keeps on recurring
II. Headache
III. Pain and/or pressure in either one of your ears or both of them
IV. Hearing loss
V. Low-grade fever and
VI. Sleeping difficulties
During your assessments, the doctor will be able to diagnose your condition and causes. They may then improve your ears' drainage to stop the buildup of fluids and infections in the ear by surgically implanting special tubes into your eardrums. This will be pivotal in managing the primary cause of infections to avoid permanent damage to the ear.
• Sinus Infection
Sinus infections can be really scary if not managed on time or treated correctly. You can get a sinus infection, also medically known as rhinosinusitis, if your nasal cavities are infected, and swollen.
This condition is mostly caused by a virus, but you may also get it from bacteria or fungi though the latter is very rare. You may also experience sinus pain from other conditions like tooth infections, allergies, and nasal polyps.
Some of the common signs of a sinus infection include pain in the sinuses, nasal discharge, nasal congestion, headache, dental pain, and ear pain. You may also experience sore throat and hoarse voice, mainly due to the post-nasal drip.
Consulting an ear, nose, and throat doctor for sinus infection can help you manage the effects of the condition by dealing with the causes, which may be due to a virus or allergies, etc.
• Tinnitus
Ringing in the ears is one of the foolproof signs of this condition. You may hear sounds and noises with this condition, but you can't verify the source of all the sounds and noises.
Tinnitus is usually temporary, especially if you've been to a party or concert. However, if the symptoms start getting worse or gets more frequent, you will need to see an ENT specialist.
They may recommend treatments and therapies, which may include using a sound machine to mask the sounds or noises you hear due to tinnitus. The treatments or therapies are necessary as tinnitus may impact your hearing ability.

You should not let an ear, nose, throat condition affect your quality of life. We have what it takes to diagnose and treat ENT disorders. Leave us your message now and we’ll help you schedule your appointment whenever convenient for you.
