I was diagnosed with ETD three years ago ie blocked ear (only one ear) distorted sound, tinnitus and other symptoms, tried steaming, blowing a balloon up, face exercises etc.... nothing worked, it eventually cleared itself up over a few months.
Back to now, I have had a slight blocked nose feeling in my affected ear for years, so suspecting I have a chronic thing going on, I have had a permanent runny nose for what seems years, never without a tissue. A few weeks ago I suspected that my EDT was coming back, bit different symptoms this time, my ear is blocked, at first it only blocked whilst laid on that ear and cleared as soon as I moved, but now it is blocked and full feeling all the time with muffled hearing, I can hear my own voice a bit in my head, a hollow sound on the bones around my ear, when holding my nostrils and breathing out, I can pop the ear after a few times, but the blocked feeling comes back instantly, pulling and prodding the outside of my ear also gives momentary relief. I is driving me mad but also getting used to it. Just hoping it sorts itself out but I'm probably prone to it, I always get pains in my face when I have a cold or headache. For some reason it is far worse with noise, noises are heightened, but at least this time I haven't got thd distorted sounds, anyone else have similar symptoms?
