I, like other's on this section of the forum, am wondering if you think that what I've been experiencing could be PT. For as long as I remember, whenever I yawn I hear that whooshing sound in my ear. It wasn't until I developed T that I became hyperconscious about the sound. I began to realize that I could yawn without the whooshing if I was intentional about it when I was yawning. I can also hear that whooshing without yawning. It's not constant, it's just when I contract whatever muscles are behind my ear on purpose. It's really easy to do, and I asked some friends if they could do that and they said no. I never thought it was PT, I was just worried that one day it could become PT if I kept yawning like I do and purposely contracting those muscles. Yesterday, I went to pop my ears with the plug your nose and blow technique, and my ear drum seemed to not pop back. That's when I heard my heartbeat in my ear. It stayed there for about 5 mins or so as I kept trying to mess with it to make it go away. I'm just wondering what you all think about this, and whether or not this situation could possibly turn into PT somewhere down the line...? Is there anything I can do to help prevent it?
