      Yes I have hearing loss. Don't know if it's from the t or in addition to the t.

      Yes. Have had mild Tinnitus in one ear since 2008 but last summer had Eustachian tubes block up overnight and since then the Tinnitus has worsened and hearing loss significant too. Only 2 separate days since August where my ears felt fully open.

      I see...is there any treatment for eustacian tube blockage? you would think they can just stick something in there to "clear" the pathway lol

      The ear fullness and eustachian tube problems puzzle me. I have them as well. They should not have anything to do with the classical T theory with hearing loss. Or have I missed something??

      If the Eustachian tube is blocked or inflamed, yes it can probably make the t temporary worse or make you have t ( which should be temporary) but I don't know for sure. I was diagnosed with ETD 2 days ago. My dr explained to me how it can cause ringing in the ear, pressure feeling that gets bad or feels okay at times. It's deff a symptom of ETD. ETD can also cause temporary hearing loss, Muffled hearing etc.

      Yes, ETD can cause T. But can T cause ET problems and why / how are these two linked? Another T mystery for sure... :)

      Hi, I have moderate hearing loss. It's no joke, it's a problem. The hearing loss came first and then the T a few years later. I had both of these problems for a number of years but never any ear fullness or ear pain problems. That started 2 months ago while I was sick with an upper respiratory infection. While I was sick, one of my ears plugged up and hurt. That's when I developed tinnitus for the first time in the affected ear and in general my T spiked involving my other ear also. I'm still having problems with the ear that feels fullness and pain. It's very frustrating because doctors don't see anything wrong so I end up treating myself with antihistamines, decongestants and nasal spray. These things are helping but it's hard to treat yourself without the help of a doctor. :-(
