      hi all :)

      I have tinnitus long ago, 10+ years, and cope with it, to date its been pretty mild but noticeable.

      However these last 2 days i'm feeling a weird sensation, kind of my right ear is blocked. It's the same ear where I have the T. I also feel kind of some head pressure. It affects my mood bc. i'm kind of scared...

      I'd say it might be stress-related, I'm under stress right now, however I am pretty used to it, but these sensations are new.

      Anybody can shed some light? thanks in advance :)

      I had blocked ears for about three months and then it just disappeared. You will find that most of the time is just goes away on its own. Don't worry too much about it. if you are really concerned see your own doctor.

      Hi, Rob, and welcome!

      Yes, the feeling of pressure and blockage that you describe is fairly common; a lot of us have experienced it. I had tinnitus for many years without any problems; then, about 3 years ago, my tinnitus got worse after taking an ototoxic drug. I had the feeling of pressure and blockage for several months, and it finally went away on its own.

      If you're under a lot of stress right now, it could have something to do with that. I hope yours calms down soon. If not, I agree with Miss Lavender that you should see your doctor to discuss.

      I don't think it's anything to worry about, but it might ease your mind to see your doctor about it.

      Best wishes,
      Karen

      Hi Karen

      Glad to hear it went away in your case. I have been pretty paranoid these last two days because T's been totally steady for 10+ years.

      however I guess I fulfill all the requirements to deserve all of it: big stress, fast food, lots of work, little holidays, random sleep...

      I am also the kind of person that is terrified about hospitals, doctors, until theres no other choice, but im taking your advice and Ms Lavender's and go visit one.

      Thanks for your help :)

      Good on you Rob! I know you don't like doctors but sometimes they might be necessary. There is no harm in visiting your doctor, I fact he/ she may even have some advice/ suggestions. I wish you luck and don't be afraid. Fear is destructive. Ciao.
