      Hello Everyone,

      I was wondering if anyone has gone through what I'm currently going through right now.....

      This morning I went for a shower and while I was showering, some water got into my ears from the shower and splashed in.

      No big deal right? Well I got out of the shower and went downstairs to make breakfast and all of a sudden I got a real fullness feeling in my ear, it felt like there was something in there and my tinnitus all of a sudden started fluctuating a lot.

      It stuck around for a bit and thought that I just had some water in my ears, and it was my TMJ issues acting up.

      Anyways, over the next couple of hours it started to feel a bit better. I tired moving around my ear lobe to help "massage the water out" which seemed to help a bit. However, after going outside for about ten min to help load some things in my dads car (it was a bit windy today). I came back in and my T was quite spiked and has stayed like that for the past hour and a bit.

      I've had issues with water in my ears before and it usually resolves. But this is really weird.

      Does anyone have any advice? Could water from the shower that splashes in there cause damage?

      Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated :)

      NO WAY...

      Just let your ears dry out, you will be fine.

      Thanks @quietatnight , I have TMJ too and sometimes these achy jaw muscles mimic worse things like ear infections or other things haha.

      Hopefully a good sleep tonight (a little advil night time) will help me get a good sleep and it should feel better by morning and the spike should simmer back down.

      Spikes are weird.

      Thanks again!

      Yes Spikes are weird, and maybe your TMJ may be effecting your tinnitus, even if we stretch it, and say that the sound of the shower messed with your tinnitus a bitt. But a little water going into your ear ? Sorry I just can't see that being a problem.


      As for taking advil, that may help, but I really think that a good night sleep is still going to be the best thing for you.



      Good Luck
