    It's important to see a doctor or nurse when a blow causes loss of hearing and pain.
    How old are you? (You sound under 18?)

    I know I should go but then again I'm scared to hear what the doctor has to say because what if it's bad ? And I'm 15.

    And what if it's not bad? Don't you think that the doctor could probably fix it?

    What if it's bad and you don't go. It will get worse, wouldn't it.

    Yeah you're right . And I think they can but I heard many people say that there is no cure so I'm worried . Also I'll take your advice and go to the doctor . I'm just freaking out . And I keep waking up from my sleep cause I'm so scared .

    Not true. An eardrum has the capability of repairing itself given time. My husband ruptured his eardrum this past spring. Took a couple of weeks, but he can hear fine again.

    I don't know if you will hear fine again. I can't see your eardrum.
