      A few days ago my right ear started feeling full and I have the feeling of light pressure. I sometimes get a very light sharp pain.

      It started only to occur when I was driving, or doing exercise.

      Today I got it when I was in the shower, and the feeling persists long after. My right ear also feels a bit funny, and I have this sensation of pressure/tiredness in my right jaw/cheek, sometimes pain in teeth and neck.

      It seems to get a bit worse with loud sounds.

      Since getting tinnitus, I have been sensitive to sharp sounds as my brain thinks it's my tinnitus or something.

      Can it be hyperacusis, TMJ, or just ear wax?

      I have the same symptoms as you, but mine are in both ears, currently wondering if I have hyperacusis as well.

      Other than that I don't really have a problem with loud sounds unless it's a balloon popping, screaming or motorbikes.
