Ear pressure/sensitivity

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello everyone, hope your all having a great weekend.. I recently started a new job and for some odd reason my ears feel sensitive whenever I sit at my desk(full then clear)..I also sit under an AC which although blows out nice air temps, it also makes me feel slightly uncomfortable due to my ear plugging every now and then.. I feel like my ears react to sound and pressure builds up especially when my work load is a lot...I suffer from mild anxiety and I know this is adding to how I feel.. The only problem is I often get a plugged ear and I struggle to hear my voice clearly in the moment as it then makes me panic..I feel like all of this is due to anxiety.. When I leave and go home I’m perfectly fine.. Anxiety presents itself as a physical feeling and when overwhelmed it can trigger all kinds of overwhelming sensations... Need to rush out but will expand on this later.. Hope you all take things easy and try and please try and stress less...x

    Hi there,you said your fine once your home.the problem could possibly be the AC blowing into your ear I would try blocking the ear canal  with cotton wool to block the air blowing into your ear .its worth a shot at least you could rule out that problem if nothing else.i used to get a lot of earache & ear infections when out in the wind I now use headphones when I’m out & it has helped no end

    May not be the a/c itself but the duct work. Could be full of dust. Most place don't have them cleaned regularly. It turns on blows dust around. Irritates your sinuses.
