Issues with hearing or your ears can be very bothersome and make daily life difficult. If you have an ear disorder, you may first notice an earache or mild hearing loss. Without proper treatment, ear diseases can cause long-term and debilitating problems — including infection, hearing loss, vertigo (dizziness) and facial paralysis or weakness.
