      I have had problems on and off for a long time now and went two years with no tinnitus.

      Anyway it flared up a year ago after a pregnancy which is the same pattern as before. Anyway I seem to be struggling to hear what people say on and off but again this happened years ago before it settled when the tinnitus went away. Its almost as if I struggle to hear because of the tinnitus because when its gone I hear fine.

      Anyway audiology said i dont need an hearing aid as my levels are still within normal range sometimes slightly lower but always returns to normal. I am already deaf in one ear since birth. Anyway why I am so scared is because today tinnitus is obviously loud but I keep getting muffled hearing like as if under water and ill pop my ear and it returns to normal.

      It keeps happening the past hour or so if I move my head in certain positions or even talk its like moving my jaw brings it on and everything sounds muffled including my own voice before returning to normal when i pop my ear by blowing out and holding my nose.

      I have just taken a shower but got no water in my ear. I should also mention i find when i bend over my hearing also muffles as if under water and then returns to normal when I stand up again.

      What could this be? Does anyone else get this?

      My tinnitus appears louder when this happens I guess not hearing clearly probably makes it appear louder. Its strange because I still hear a lot of stuff obviously when tinnitus is loud Its harder.

      I just need to stop myself having a panic attack right now because of this.

      Thanks in advance x

      I have had something similar before also where i was eating and every chew my ear was popping almost as if something was hitting off my eardrum. I did wonder if this was more of an ETD. I guess its just scary because its not something i am used to and how it makes me hear in that moment. I feel scared to even move or talk right now incase I keep getting it x

      It seems to have stopped now not sure what caused the constant popping and muffled hearing maybe it was my ET or maybe being in the shower I don't know.x

      Hi Glynis how are you? I am not great to be honest. Currently in bed. Been to a&e this morning after having another spike this morning and its still loud now. They just looked in my ears and said ear wax and to see someone about getting it removed. I am finding it hard to hear on and off and even worse with this loud tinnitus. Struggled to sleep last night had to go sleep on the sofa was so restless and still am but really tired. I think I may take a diazepam tonight if still feeling the same. I hate feeling like this x

      Aww Glynis thats lovely and great for you to spend quality time with your grandchild. Its good you still can do that ie collecting from school. My daughter started school on Tues and goes properly full time the end of the month and she also has to wear a uniform now. The school run keeps me active as with out it I would stay indoors and convince myself things are that bad I can't go out. I haven't done it today though my partner took her so I could rest. Can I ask Glynis do you ever or have you done any travelling by air plane since all these ear problems? I ask as I would love to take my daughter next year or the year after abroad but I never book as I talk myself out of it thinking I can't go with how I feel. I worry I will trigger more symptoms or worsen them. Thank you Glynis I think I do need to treat myself a little I don't know what that feels like lately. I do love tv and films though :) I know what you mean its hard with the spikes to do anything. I have not had one like I did last night and this morning in years it was at the scale of when I had it when I first got pregnant. I think Its scared me because it was 2 spikes in less than 24hours that lasted a couple of hours so I think I hope this isn't the pattern for it now. I hope I don't have one tomorrow. Fingers crossed. Hows work are you back there now after the hols and still doing the same hours?x
