Stuffy ears anyone? Is it another peri symptom?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I had this issue during my first pregnancy, they blamed my hormones for ear fullness and sinus problems. I've been having worst time in perimenopause for ladt 6 months, anxiety, palpitations, mood swings, missed or light periods... but this ear fullness is driving me crazy... anyone else experiencing this?

    Yes. All day, every day. My ears pop with the pressure like being on an airplane. Drives me nuts!

    I've had this since January, sometimes it's not too bad but sometimes the pressure gives me a headache, when it's bad I take sinus medication, helps some. Apparently it's quite common.

    Yes! The last 6 months of my preganancy my ears and sinuses drove me nuts. And literally the day after my child was born it went away. Then, when all this hormone business started with peri all the fun came back. It's hit and miss for me.

      Yes same here. It started right after my anxiety and palpitations started out of the blue in March... it's been down the hill since... but they say nothing lasts forever so let's hope it ends soon

    Yes for a couple years. Feels like cotton stuck in them. Usually one ear at a time. Doctor checks them,says they are fine. Told me post nasal drip,which I am now treating. Don't know if it's hormonal but it's another annoyance to deal with.
