      I am just curiuos who has fullness in the ear feeling?. The type of feeling you may get when you go swimming and can't get the water out of your ears etc.. I haven't made a poll before so I hope I did this right.

      Do you have that type of feeling in your ears?. I am just trying to get some info as to how many people have it.

      Options are, I want to know who has fullness feeling in their ears.. Yes or No... Also there is other options to choose.. Yes or No for fullness in the ear with or without ETD. (Eustechian Tube Disfunction.)

      I hope I did this properly. If I made this up right... you should only be able to pick just one option.

      I've had this fullness feeling for quite some time. I hate it but there's nothing I can do unless anyone has any ideas that worked. No ETD as far as I know.

      I've had fullness since the onset and the ENT was clueless at every visit. I know now that it's down to muscular strain for me. Every time I do certain exercises I get the fullness and it can stay for a while. It's down to a tightness in the tendons / muscles around my neck and shoulders, which if you feel then, connect right up behind your ears.

      It can also fell like an itch in my ears and does dull my hearing too.

      Only when my jaw muscles are tight. There are trigger points I can manually release in the mouth but it's very uncomfortable.

      I had an ETD diagnosis at the onset of my tinnitus but the fullness only became noticable in recent years. The inner ears feel ticklish pretty often too albeit for a short while each time.
