Anyone ever have one? My sitter called me today saying my 5 year old had blood coming out of her ear. I couldn't leave work so I had her dad take her to the emergency room. They say she has a ruptured ear drum. Doesn't this hurt? She's running around playing like normal.

I've had it happen several times. It doesn't always hurt, no. After it ruptures that usually releases the pain. Definitely take her to an ENT, though as soon as you can.

My husband has one from all the times he went to the war. He says it really doesn't hurt just annoying as hell.

I have hearing loss due to my eardrum rupturing and that ear does not pop so plane rides and deep diving is very painful.

Ruptures relieve the pain, that is why she is content now.  Both of my kids have had ruptures...I have one who has had 3 (with tubes!), and one who has had 2 and has an appt. coming up with ENT to get them because of how easily he ruptures when he gets an infection.

My left side ruptured about two years ago, after having the flu. Didn't know it was infected til it actually popped. It hurt like hell, I had to have someone take me to the hospital and was literally puking from the pain.

Kidney stones was the worst, then childbirth, then the ear drum rupture...
It also took about two weeks for my hearing to come back.
