    Chronic Ear Issue

    One day about two years ago my left ear started feeling weird. The sensation is like a dull ache with no pain. It's just uncomfortable. This was a stressful time for me but I figured it would just go away on it's own. I'm going to note that I am a pretty active individual but my work is very sedentary. I usually sit at a computer screen for hours on end.

    Months started going by and it really started to affect me. I developed pretty intense anxiety and found it hard to get motivated about anything, all because of this sensation. Sometimes my ear rings for ~10 seconds and then goes away. I have made dozens of trips to ENT offices, neurologists, had CT scans, even had a septoplasty in hopes that somehow my deviated septum was connected to the issue. NOTHING has worked.

    It has really impacted my life in a negative way. I have learned to live with this and defeated my anxiety but it's something that is always there and I want nothing more in this life than for it to go away. I'm not expecting some profound diagnosis here, just seeing if anyone has had a similar experience.
