      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hi - I had some hearing tests on Friday (yesterday) due to unilateral tinnitus in my left ear.

      Yesterday evening and today I feel like I have ETD (Eustachian Tube Dysfunction) in my left problematic ear. I have some pain deep in my inner ear and under my jawline. I have had these issues in the past but there was certainly a sudden spike in symptoms since the hearing tests yesterday.

      I do not have any issues with my right ear.

      I think some of the tests puff small amounts of air in the ear which I am thinking caused the spike in symptoms.

      I had a tympanometry test, acoustic reflex test and otoacoustic emission test in addition to the other common hearing tests.

      The tympanometry test revealed intact and mobile tympanic membranes bilaterally which I think means that I do not have ETD. So my symptoms do not match up with the test results.

      Has anyone ever had similar symptoms after these types of hearing tests?

      Thanks in advance!
