My 13 year old son has some ear problems can

Patient

Q: My 13 year old son has some ear problems can you please diagnose this. He said that whenever he tilts his head it feels like something is moving in his ear.

Symptoms:  Headache.
Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query for your son.

His classical history of something moving in his ear on tilting can be due to 2 things.
- Wax in the ear canal or
- Fluid in the middle ear.

You can certainly put a light in and see if the wax is there or not.
Surely meet the ENT as proper diagnosis and treatment is then only possible
