Ear pain may be due to infections and inflammation of the external, middle or inner ear as well as from structures that are located adjacent to the ear itself. Ear pain usually occur in children, but they can occur in adults as well. An ear pain may affect one or both ears, but the majority of the time it’s in one ear. It may be constant or come and go, and the pain may be dull, sharp, or burning. Ear pain is one of the most disturbing pain. It affects not only ears but also jaw, head, cheek bones and even neck. The most common causes of the ear pain are:
- Impacted Ear Wax
- Ear Infection
- Cough and Cold
- Tubal Blockage
- Swimmer's Ear
- Temporomandibular Joint Pain
Injury, infection, irritation in the ear, or referred pain may cause earaches. Referred pain is pain felt somewhere other than the infection or injured site. Ear Wax is one of the most common causes of ear pain that we see at Gurgaon ENT Centre, Gurgaon. Wax generation is a common phenomenon wherein wax is generated and automatically goes out. However when the process is not proper or fiddled with, it leads to ear pain. Outer ear infection can be caused by swimming, wearing hearing aids or headphones that damage the skin inside the ear canal, or putting cotton swabs or fingers in the ear canal. MIddle ear infection can be caused by infections that stem from a respiratory tract infection. Fluid buildup behind the ear drums caused by these infections can breed bacteria. Labyrinthitis is an inner ear disorder that’s sometimes caused by viral or bacterial infections from respiratory illnesses.
The treatment would depend upon the reason for ear pain. If teh ear pain is due to ear wax then the ENT specialist at Gurgaon ENT Centre would try and clean the wax to relieve you of the pain. In case the wax is hard or impacted then the ENT specialist may advise you ear drops to soften the ear wax. However if the infection is the root cause of the ear pain then the treatment would be directed towards treating the infection. Treatment for outer and middle ear infection are generally treated through medicine and ear drops. However in certain types of inner ear infection ENT surgeon may advise surgery if required. Surgery is generally advised in case the infection has reached mastoid bone. The surgery is advised in case there is discharge from the ear and also hearing loss. There are cases of inner ear infection which are also associated with vertigo. In these cases we at Gurgaon ENT Centre have seen that the patient's vertigo may or may not go. The aim of the surgery is to treat the inner ear infection which could be more damaging in the long run.
I absolutely loved the experience or having consulting her. I should have gone to her before. Extremely satisfied with the advices and initial treatments she suggested. She is really caring kind and explains the causes to the patients in the language they speak.
"Affection is a powerful medicine". I think that's what is her doctrine. Dr. Priyaranjana comes across as an angel, in those real tough times. Treatment and pills surely cure a disease, but love and affection is what makes all the difference. One of the most loving medical practitioner have ever come across. She is brilliant at her art and refined in her techniques. An absolute blend of intelligence and devotion in all what she does. Recently, gone through Tonsillectomy and Nasal Septoplasty in August 2018. It was one painful episode creating turbulence in my life for a month, but results were over whelming and worth all the pain and discomfort. I now breathe smooth with a better throat. Sigh of relief - making my living a lot more peaceful and productive. Plus this antibiotic and infection free living is so much fun and lively. Been associated with her for past two years gives me all the power and reason to write about her with absolute conviction. Not just during my surgery, she devoted her best in me, but have been encouraging through out my consultation with her over the years. I just don't recommend her, adore her completely. Doctors like her are rare. I respect her for living her profession with utmost honesty sincerity and love. We need more doctors like her, who are masters not just in their profession but winning hearts, wherever they go, and whatever they do.
Every time even a single drop of water in my left ear drum would lead to severe ear pain and infection. It was becoming a prolonged problem and finally in Apr’17, I decided to get it fixed. I started looking out for best ENT Specialist in Delhi, but could not find any because most of the specialists had mixed reviews. I was about to end my search, when I thought about looking out in NCR as well and Voila!! I found Dr. Priyanjana A Sharma with the best reviews ever and based on the online reviews, I decided to go for a consultation and I AM SO GLAD, I DID!! To begin with, she has all the patience in the world to hear you out properly. From the very first meeting with her, I knew it that she will cure me completely. She told me the problem with my ear drum is because of enlarged tonsillitis in my throat and adenoids in my nose. Within that same month, I decided to get it operated as advised by her. I wasn’t nervous at all and it was all because she is so convincing and has such a gentle touch, that I was completely assured at the back of my mind, that I am in safe hands. My surgery was successful and I recovered within 15 days. Not only her “before” and “during” the surgery care is extraordinary but even post-surgery, she took care of me very well. Even today, if I face any difficulty she is only a phone call away and that’s so comforting!! Her reviews helped me a lot and that’s why, I am writing a review for her today because she totally deserves one. If you have any ENT problem, I strongly recommend you to please visit Dr. Sharma once and you will be grateful to her forever, like I am. THANK YOU Doctor, you are truly a blessing, the most ingenious inspirer of hope. Thank you for everything you have done to keep me in best of spirits. I wish the best for you always.
Few months back I had a troublesome sinus infection and was suffering from earache and headaches due to sinus blockage.After visiting few doctors I finally luckily found Dr. Priyanjana. She looked into my reports and explained all the problems and prescribed alternate medicines for some of the steroids I was taking from previous doctor's prescription. We discussed about the solutions and I had FESS and septoplasty surgery performed by her.She clearly explained the procedures and how I would feel in the recovery period.I am writing this review 6 weeks after the surgery and I am finally feeling a LOT better now. She is a genuine doctor, very true to her profession and a humble human being.Thanks ma'am.
Her credentials already say how good a doctor she is, so i may not be required to say that again here. You may find good doctors who can cure you, all around the world. But with Dr. Acharya you have your doctor always with you (just a call away) all around the world. Always happy to help. With very few doctors I have seen such commendable commitment to be there for your patient whenever one is need. Kudos !

Doctor with multiple degrees is useless if he/she don't listen and satisfy psychologically a patients. Dr. Priyanjana understand the patients concern very sciencerly which helps a lot in overall treatment. Dr. Priyanjana is a beautiful person, talented and dedicated professional. She don't hype the problem rather cool down the patient logically and do her job best...now a days its rare in medical field. ultimate doctor!!!
It was my first surgery in my life and i was really scared & nervous.The thought of hospitalization is scary and traumatizing. But caring doctors like you make it friendly and pleasing. Thanks for your effective analysis and diagnosis, really thank you Dr Priyanjana
