Clogged/Fullness in Ears and Pressure/Vertigo in Head
I have been having this problem for the last 4 years and still didn't find a solution for my problems. It started with ear pressure and my ears feel clogged and full all the time and I keep trying to pop them every day. I keep opening jaw and pushing through nose to try to keep them open but with no longterm success. This has been happening on a daily basis for the last for 4 years and it is really hard to live like this.
The second problem is the head pressure and these weird feelings in my head. This is something that comes and go (or is bearable at least for some time), but when it is there I feel like there is constanly some pressure around my forehead, eyes, sometime at the back aswell and in my neck. I feel a bit of vertigo and I find it hard to focus because of this (with stress it gets even worse). If i lie down I can also very easily hear my hearbeat in my head.
I have already been to multiple ENTs,Neurologist, took CT of head, sinuses, went to TMJ specialist,chiropractor,bioresonance and probably some other stuff that I can't remember now. Thing is all results came back normal and noone could tell me what is wrong with me while I know something is not right.
If someone has experienced this or found a relief or know what it is, then PLEASE help as I am desperate to get better.
Me too - exactly the same. For years and years, and it's getting worse. Diagnosis was chronic 'inflammatory sinus disease'.
Treatment....sniff up salt water....use nasal spray and so on and on. Had all the tests, brain scan, sinus exam and like you, hearing and balance tests, eye tests and other stuff that I can't remember because this is so hard to cope with that my concentration and memory is affected when it's bad.
I have found no answers! Doctors have given up! Anybody, please help us both if you can.
Anyway Playaz, you are not alone.......there is somebody out there.....(me)
It's me again - I forgot to ask where you live and what the weather is like. Are you affected worse during weather changes or rainy or humid weather? Or in summer or winter or all the time?
I ask because I live in a mild sub tropical climate and mine used to be worst at the start and during winter which is dry, but the last couple of years I'm affected really badly when it rains and in the humid stormy summers.
I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering as I am... actually I was just thinking about this aswell and at the moment it is worse again and it is winter time here. I actually felt better in last months(as for head pressure, ear are clogged almost always) but in late December i started to notice it is getting worse again. What do you think this could mean ?
It means that we have the same problems but no answers. It's obviously connected to climate and changing air pressures; allergy for sure but to what I don't know. I have met other people who get this stuff when the weather changes from fine to rainy, but it only lasts a day or two. Us, it's most of the time.
Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications. Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate. This can block the tubes. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC antihistamines.
I have been having these same symptoms for the past few years as well. At least 5 years or longer. Recently it's becoming unbearable, and it's effecting my ability to focus and as you mentioned, my memory. Everyday it seems as if I feel more and more twitches and pulses around my head, and my ears are clogged now more than ever. I'm wondering if any of you ever got a definite diagnosis on these symptoms.
