      Tinnitus Since:
      I've been having ear problems for the past 7 months or so and I can't figure out what it is :

      - Pressure in ears (Switches from side to side)
      - Very low tinnitus (recent development) I can stop the tinnitus if I open my jaw really really wide. It's only noticeable in very quiet rooms.
      - Slight burning pain in ears (Switches from side to side)
      - Certain sounds seem to make my ears "tense-up"

      I have no dizziness, my hearing tests have come out better then normal and my LDLs are normal as well. This is driving me nuts!

      I thought for a while it was Hyperacusis, but like I said, my LDLS tested up to 110 dBs (Max allowed for the test I guess) I've been to plenty of loud places such as bars and what not and it might be a little uncomfortable if it's really loud but I don't think thats abnormal. It seems the symptoms are all tied to when my ears feel full.

      Any suggestions on what I should do to diagnose this?

      Tinnitus Since:
      With low pitched tinnitus and intermittent fullness, cochlear hydrops comes to mind - but that's really much more of a guess and much less of a diagnosis at this point in time. My suggestion would be for you to see a neurotologist for a thorough evaluation, which will clearly serve you far better than my "shot in the dark."

      All the best -
