My ear issue started with blocked Eustachian tubes. I now have tinnitus along side the blocked ears. The tinnitus is more distressing than the blocked ear but the more gummed up my tubes, the louder the tinnitus. I have tried a lot of things to clear this, nothing is helping. Any ideas? I believe my tube problem started with lifting weights and not breathing properly at times, creating presure. I now do anything excercise related and I'm almost deaf after, and my tinnitus seems to rage out of control from the lack of outside information to the ear.
