Anyone else have ear problems in Peri?

Posted , 12 users are following.

hi ladies

Is anyone else having ear problems in peri? I have been getting ear pressure, ear fullness, ringing. It constantly changing but I never get a break from it. I noticed I used to get ear fullness around my periods but now it's just random at any time of the month. Not to mention the constant headaches I have since my peri anxiety started. I do take allergy medicine and nasal spray but not much difference in my ear symptoms. Is this another annoying peri symptom?

    I also have had weird ear stuff going on.

    Awhile back I had a popping sound in one ear, I just realized it has completely stopped.

    But now I have the ear ringing. I have this most days. Some days low ringing, some pretty high.

    (it goes away some days but comes back)

      As an update, today my ear ringing is gone!

      That's just for now. I just wonder why some days it is SOOO bad and now completely gone.

    Yes. My head pressure is always there. Has been for several years. Ears pop all the time. Almost like cabin pressure on an air plane. Certain sun glasses make indentations on my cheeks cuz my sinuses are always slightly swollen. Tried nasal spray, allergy meds, etc. Nothing seems to help. Now after 2 years menopausal, just trying to accept this as the "norm" 😟

      hi Angela unfortunately no I don't have anything that works or helps my ear symptoms. I take melatonin to help me sleep sometimes. I blame it on anxiety brought on by peri. hopefully as our hormones settle, so will the symptoms

      yes I have that rushing sound in my right ear. Also some buzzing, rumbling on and off. Makes my head pressure worse when I get that rushing sound. why hormones have to create such havoc... 😭😭
