Sudden problems with ears
voicetek20 posted:
I'm a 33 year old male and for the last two weeks I've had problems with my ears. First it started with a little bit of light headedness and then came some ringing in my ears. Over the course of the next week, pressure and pain started to build in my ears. Now this week, my ears are starting to pop and crack when I talk and swallow. This whole time I've also had a feeling of fullness in my ears and I can hear myself inside my head when I talk or hum. I've also become very sensitive to sounds. It seems like sound even aggravates these symptoms to an extent.

I've been to the doctor twice and they looked inside my ears and said everything looked fine, but could be fluid or sinus pressure build up, but not completely sure. I've currently taking Zyrtec, Flonase, and Prednisone in order to reverse some of these symptoms.

Has anyone heard of anything like this or had any of these problems yourself? I guess my only choice as of now is to go back to the doctor and see what else they say, but I'd like to get some opinions first. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
