      Maybe it's just me, since my T is related to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, but my family is going to a water park and being I have to follow them, maybe even swim as well. Does it affect T badly? Anyone with experience?

      Swimming never effected my T. I love to swim in warm waters. Helps my T. Maybe because of my tensions.

      I can't see swimming affecting ETD, just don't dive deep into the pool, cause that causes pressure in the ears.

      But it may be best to see what others with ETD say as well

      Has anyone with T gone for a swim? If so, how was your experience? I have ETD, which was actually caused by swimming and having the water stuck in my ear. I haven't gone for a swim in over a year since then, but I don't know when the feeling of wanting to go for a swim might come back.

      I grew up swimming competitively. I swim everyday. Swimming is refuge from tinnitus. I asked by GP when I contracted tinnitus and after he looked into my ears and saw no infection he said, he thought swimming would do more good due to the exercise value than foul. I have heeded this advice. I see no change in my tinnitus due to swimming and swimming not only keeps me fit but the water washing over my head and body as I swim literally drowns out my tinnitus.

      I did swim for the first time the other day in a while. I had plugged ears a couple of days later. Haven't had that symptom in over a year. But I did swim underwater quite a bit. I would say go swim have fun, but be careful about swimming underwater.
