      This may be a weird question, but obviously I have Tinnitus, so I understand my ringing to an extent. But about 20 minutes ago while just browsing the internet my left ear went deaf and I got a different ring, it was very high pitched. The ringing and the "deafness" slowly faded but now my ear still feels a little stuffed up.

      Has this happened to anyone else?

      It happens to me quite often I don't know what it is or why but it's scary, thankfully it goes back to normal after a few minutes.
