      Every so often my ears feel like they are being pulled back, kind of like if you were to "wiggle" your ears and keep them held back, if that makes any sense.

      Has anyone felt this before? It never lasts long, but if anyone has experienced this, what is it?? It's not painful, it just feels sort of like a pressure or pulling sensation.

      It's a strange feeling, it must have something to do with pressure that causes tension. Or perhaps it's the ears adjusting or something? My girlfriend who doesn't have T said she gets that from time to time, so maybe it is unrelated. I noticed that it was very prevalent when I was chewing gum and it stopped when I spit the gum out. My guess is that because my jaw is irritated from trying to constantly trying to unplug my ear, it was putting a lot of pressure on the ear canal and as a result my ear felt pressure. Not entirely sure though.
