      Tinnitus Since:
      This Monday I went to my ENT appointment - a second Opionion at a new hospital and Doctor for my pain, pressure and blocked ears.

      1.They did a sound test - no hearing loss.

      2.They checked inside my ears- no fluid or damage visible.

      3. They did a pressure test - no sign of any pressure issues but the day I went I was a good day for my ears ( Sod's law).

      I went to a music event in a club, was exposed to 4 hours of loud music and came out with painful swollen throbbing ears which has become 6 painful months of pain, blocked ears and pressure. Each day is different and there is no key indicator why on some days my ears are better.

      Even on the good days the blocked pressure feeling never goes away 100% but at least the pain is not so bad. I have tinnitus in both ears but I am not bothered with the sound.

      I have had accupucture, taking Supplements : NAC + and Gingko.

      The hospital say it's nothing,
      but yet I have this terrible pain and pressure. Today is so bad - I feel like my ears are about to explode.

      I don't know what to do anymore- my fear is taking over. There doesn't seem to be a cure or a drug as such for the symptoms I describe.

      Why can't the doctors help or find anything? I don't know what to do anymore....
