Air escaping?
Hello, first time here.

Everytime Iím around someone that talks loud or I hear something loud (for example, shouting, loud music, kids), it feels like and sounds like air is escaping from my left ear (and never my right ear). I donít have tinnitus because it doesnít happen when itís quiet and itís not constant, it only happens when I hear loud noises. Does anyone know what it might be? Is it something that happens everyone?

Re: Air escaping?
The symptom you describe are very similar to those that I experienced when I started developing inner ear issues.

Mine was always my left ear. It would happen with loud noises and it would happen when I talked to other people.

I described it as a hissing/click/whoosh combo.

I would suggest seeing an ear nose and throat doctor (ENT) if you can, which is something I did not do at the time.

Tinnitus does not have to be constant to be tinnitus.

I read the symptoms and strongly sure this is not the case of tinnitus. I can relate it with barotrauma. It is connected with the internal ear probably deposition of wax or some injury in the tympanic membrane. I would recommend you an Otolarigologist consultation.

Go see an Otolaryngologist which is an ear, nose and throat doctor. You should be checked out for inner ear issues and find out what else might be causing it.
