      For around 4 years ive had crackling in both my ears when i swallow, yawn etc. Ive had no ear issues in my life. I do suffer from migraines.

      2 days ago i started to get a dull ache in my right ear and then the tinnitus started.

      I went to the doctors yesterday who told me my ear drum isnt flat like most peoples. Its coned shaped. She said i have blocked inner ear which is why im feeling like i do.

      She told me to go home and inhale salt water steam twice a day for 3 days.

      My question is....is this really going to help? What is actually wrong with me and will this tinnitus be permanent?

      Thanks

      Just want to add...prior to this the ear crackling has caused me no issues what so ever.

      Hi Colleen.
      Steam inhalation works great to unblock your tubes from and unwanted mucous and should help but get your ears checked again in a few days to see if your ear drum looks better as they can alter in shape and check you might need drops.
      Steam inhalation for me and olive oil drops in your eara are the first point of action and a good MOT for your ears....lots of love glynis

      It's very early days for you and as every chance in going away once your ears have settled.
      Try to relax and be calm as tinnitus can cause anxiety and the anxiety can increase your tinnitus and soon have you with a low mood as emotions take hold.
      Stay positive it will settle down in a few days as I'm sure it will....lots of love glynis x
