Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: ear popping etc.

lwood201 - Thu Nov 18, 2004 7:24 pm

My ears pop when I swallow, and I have muffled hearing in the same ear. Sometimes I can hear a sound in my ear like someone blowing in an empty pop bottle. I have already been diagnosed with tinnunitis last year. I have lots of Headaches, and have lots and lots of dizziness...sometimes for hours. I have some bouts of extreme fatigue. My eyes tend to jump, or it seems like they do, during my bouts with dizziness. A CT scan showed an enlarged auditory canal. An MRI was normal....what can this be?
