Ringing and dampened hearing in one ear, headaches.
Hello,

I am a 23 year old male. For the last week or so, I've been experiencing trouble in my left ear. I can't exactly sure that I can pinpoint when it began. I've been experiencing tinnitus-like symptoms in both ears for quite a while now. However, it seems as though my left ear has suddenly gotten worse. I'm experiencing dampened hearing in the ear. It doesn't seem to sense the same higher pitches as my right ear does. I also have minor pain in the left side of my head, which occasionally seems to flash over to my right. I haven't participated in anything I can think that might have caused it to become worse, such as swimming or flying. I've also tried hot showers and holding my nose while blowing to no effect. Is there anything anyone can recommend?
