Last Wednesday, I noticed that my right ear was doing something odd. If I talked, or blinked hard or somesuch, a weird vibrating buzz would happen in my ear...like a muscle spasm, it seemed.
I tried to ignore it, though it was very frequent. On Thursday is started to hurt, so we went into the doctor...who told me it was likely just negative pressure caused by a blocked eustachian tube from nasal congestion (which I had been sneezing & having a nasal drip).
Anyway, all the doctor said was to take decongestants or plug my nose and mouth and blow.
I've been diligently trying to unblock this stupid tube since Thursday and nothing's happening. I've been yawning, blowing, chewing gum, etc, etc and nothing is working.
I feel at a loss, and the "vibrating" in my ear every 10 seconds is driving me up the wall...
