      If the hill was of a high enough altitude, then you will experience changes in the air pressure while driving uphill or downhill. It can cause your ears to feel blocked to the point you feel like you 'went deaf'. I experienced something very similar in a plane.

      @Cillian yeah sometimes things like this do make us feel uncomfortable, but there's not much to worry about as long as nothing serious resulted from them :)

      When I brought it up it made me think that it made my T worse and probably stopped it from going away but that's how bad my anxiety can get :)
