I woke up after a nap on 1st June with a loud ringing in my left ear with quite bad hearing loss in the ear to match. It lasted for 2 weeks (the hearing loss part) and then it got better. The ringing persisted and often changed in loudness, for the first few weeks it was very depressing and hard to sleep. Doctor booked me in to have ears syringed but that did nothing eventually got appointment to see ENT.
they did an MRI scan of my ear to see if anything wrong so far that's all that's happened in 7 months. I thought I had eustachian tube dysfunction but not sure if I do as that would go away by now. And I think I have developed a ringing in my right ear just now but in a different way. It's not same as left more of like an occasional sound like of waves on a beach or wind. Or maybe it's just in my head I'm not sure yet. I have had quite bad mucus (lots of it) since christmAs day. I read that's related to tube dysfunction. New problems since June 1st with ears are also when I hear certain sounds my ears beat like a drum. Like typing on keyboard it's very annoying. It's like the ear drum vibrates. And second problem whenever I sneeze yawn etc I get a loud noise coming from inside my head like when I suddenly look up with my eyes I get a noise out my right ear. Maybe it's related to tensing muscles in the face. I don't know. When I yawn I get the noise out of both ears. Its hard to describe what it sounds like.
So basically is this permanent or curable? If it is eustachian tube dysfunction. Or did I randomly just wake up with tinnitus that will be with me forever? And if so why do I have these other ear problems suddenly. And I also have visual snow (started same time as tinnitus) just read up that they are linked. Any hope for me?
