Why See an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Specialist?

An Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist or an ENT doctor are essential for diagnosing and treating health conditions that involve the ear, nose, neck, or sinuses. If you are someone who frequently experiences symptoms from seasonal allergies, ear infections, or nasal congestion, you will most likely benefit from seeing an ENT specialist.

What Conditions Can an ENT Specialist Treat?

An ENT specialist can diagnose and treat the following conditions:

  • Chronic ear infections
  • Hearing loss
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Chronic stuffy nose
  • Chronic sore throat or tonsillitis
  • Lumps in the neck or enlarged lymph nodes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Sinusitis

Most patients who can benefit from treatment recommended by an ENT specialist may be experiencing common everyday symptoms that mimic a cold or seasonal allergy flare-up. However, if you find that these symptoms do not improve over time or are recurring, you should visit an ENT specialist to find treatment for long-lasting relief.

What Are Common Sinusitis Symptoms?

Patients suffering from sinusitis symptoms may experience the following:

  • Bad breath
  • Loss of smell
  • Cough, often worse at night
  • Fatigue and general feeling of being ill
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pressure-like pain, especially pressure pain behind the eyes
  • Toothache
  • Tenderness of the face
  • Nasal stuffiness and discharge
  • Sore throat
  • Postnasal drip

Patients suffering from allergy symptoms may experience the following:

  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Itchy or running nose
  • Constant sneezing
  • Rashes
  • Hives (a rash with raised red patches)
  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing

When Is a Good Time to See an ENT?

If you suffer from chronic symptoms involving your sinuses, ears, nose, or throat, it is generally a good idea to see your ENT doctor for regular checkups and monitoring of symptoms. However, when it comes to how you experience symptoms and for how long, there are some alarming situations that may warrant an immediate visit to your ENT doctor. We recommend visiting your ENT doctor if:

  • Your sore throat causes you difficulty swallowing and breathing.
  • You go several minutes without breathing during sleep (sleep apnea).
  • Your allergy symptoms impair your complete everyday functions.
  • Your dizziness and vertigo prevent you from standing, walking, or moving with proper coordination.
  • You develop a hoarseness or wheezing when speaking or coughing that has not improved.
  • You have a fever.
  • You are experiencing severe pain.
