Myringotomy (ear tubes) Problems in Adult

I had ear tubes put in three days ago and the pressure, noise level, clogged feeling is almost unbearable.  I feel as if I have an echoing in my head and I can hear my own voice rattling through my head.  I can also hear when I chew and I can hear my pulse!  I can also hear the air conditioner, cars, and other humming type noises at an incredibly loud level.  However, I can hardly hear the TV or other people talking.  I feel as if my head is underwater when I hear and the pressure is like being in an airplane.  I had pressure and a clogged feeling before, but this is worse and I want to rip these things out.  Has anyone else had this happen to them??  Does it go away and I just need to be patient or is this not right.

I had a tube placed in my right ear yesterday and i am feeling exactly what you described. My eardrum ruptured from an infection a few days ago so the tube has relieved some of the pain, but my ear feels completely clogged.  A very annoying feeling.

I too am having this problem.  The pressure and pain is terrible.  Did yours ever get better and how long did it take.
