Re: Perplexing Ear problem
I've joined this site for similar reasons. Over three months ago, some of my first symptoms was the popping in my ears--like in a plane, but without being in one. My first ENT said it was TMJ. However, the popping is truly in my ears, not in my ear joints. So...look up TMJ to see if you have more symptoms in line with that. Another thing to look up is Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. That is why my ears are popping. It could be due to allergies as well.
I've continued to have several other symptoms occurring since February, like vacuum-sensations and pressure to pain without relief. But remembering back to the beginning, my symptoms were like yours. Good luck to you.
