      I am seeing an audioigist tomorrow. 3 weeks ago I woke to having my hearing to more the right side of my ear. Bass sounds would gravitate more to this ear aswel.
      But today it seems now like the bass and hearing is more towards my left ear?
      Could it be a blocked eustachian tube? or something more serious?
      Thanks

      Could be, my eustachian tube was blocked on the right side for well over a year. Seems a lot better now. Best to let an ENT check you out. Those hearing aid places are in it to sell product.

      blocked eustachian tubes can definitely distort or lower hearing.

      the honest truth is it's hard for them to figure it out. perhaps checking the ear drum itself is a better way
