Stop all the medicines that you are taking. There could have been a traumatic perforation of the ear drum or the nerves in the inner ear might have got temporarily damaged. Get an ent consultation done to rule out if there is any perforation of the ear drum. Do not allow any water to enter the ear. Put cotton inside the ear & keep the ear dry for about 15 days. The ringing sensation should go on its own.

Hi. Do you hear to music a lot. The pain can be due to wax also. If you have too much pain then take a pain killer. You may check your ear with a ent doctor so that the pain cause can be checked. It can be due to ear drum problem also.

How to clear ear?

Do not use ear buds. It will push wax deeper inside and cause pain, blockage and injury. Best way is to clean ear with edge of towel after a hot water bath. If ear is blocked due to wax you can use wax dissolving drops upon prescription from a near by ent doctor.

Dear you need to get the ear drum repair done, than at least in further life you can have hearing aid to hear, if ear drum rupture is there than hearing aid will not work properly, you will be able to hear but will not understand or differentiate the words.
