      I went to the doctors about it and he told me it's normal. I have ear pain and fluttering tinnitus. I had grommets when I was 4. He also mentioned that I have a hole in my ear drum and he basically laughed at me for using my tiny camera inside my ear. I know that's silly but I never touched my ear inside so it was fine. I had blocked ears from fight few years ago. ETD think it's called?

      Anyway should I worry about what's going on inside my ears? A doctor once told me I have the most weird looking ears.

      He just "mentioned" this. Having a hole in your ear drum is not normal. Do you know the cause? Did he discuss healing and what might be done if it doesn't heal?

      He reckons the fight caused the hole in my ear drum like the blockage problems I had. Yeah he just came out with it. I kinda barked at him and said what?? A hole in my ear drum is normal?? He was like yes. I need to see another doctor I think.

      Nope he didn't say anything else if it don't heal.

      That's what I thought. I also get some discharge and pain in the ear. I did mention that but the doctor dismissed it

      I have met some idiotic doctors, but yours is on top. Go to a real one.

      Actually I think it's scarred tissue (maybe from the grommets?) that makes your eardrums appear white
