Odd Noise in Left Ear
I just started noticing an odd noise in my left ear. It occurs when I either lean my head to the left, or press along the right edge of the ear.
The sound is very hard to describe. It sounds similar to when you stretch a rubber band along a ruler as it stretches to the max, that little creak that is made by the rubber band.
Bit of history. Never listen to loud music in earphones, don't use in ear earphones (All over the ear type earphoes). Do not use q-tips (I use rinses, or just let the water in the shower do what water does) no current sinus infections, colds, anything that might block up the ears.
I did, however last month, fly cross country about 5 times. All of the times I had layovers of less than an hour, so my ears never had a chance to fully regulate the pressure again before going back up. However, did not have any type of cold of sinus issues when flying.
Since I don't have insurance ATM (Starting on the 15th) I was wondering, is this a potential problem? If it is, I will go in to a ENT even before insurance kicks in, but I just haven't gone yet.
