Dripping, liquidy feeling inside ear
Hi. :wave:

I sometimes feel a liquidy, dripping feeling in one of my ears. Sometimes it starts for no reason, like in the middle of the day. Other times it happens when I sit up after lying down (like waking in the morning).

It feels like oil slowly dripping inside my ear. Creepy and itchy!

Has anyone felt this?

Peace and health to all.

Thanks guys.

Once, I was desperate for relief from the lack of balance and the jiggling vision, that I went for raindrop therapy.

Raindrop therapy is a massage-type thing where the therapist uses special oils. I can't recall the name of the oils, my memory is so bad today. The therapist rubbed oil into my feet, my spine and my neck. A different oil was put on my ears, not in my ears, just around the lobe and a tiny bit around the inside of ear opening.

It didn't help my balance at all but it sure felt good and I smelled great! It was $100 a session so I only did 4 of them.

The first morning after this therapy, I noticed that there were small dark spots all over my pillowcase where my ears had been. Its as if this gooey liquidy stuff in my ear dripped out during the night.

I've never had waxy ears so I don't think it was wax. It freaked me out to see those little spots.

I asked the therapist to sell me the oil she rubbed on my ears so that I can see if it happens again. She said it takes a few weeks to order the oil. I may be reaching for straws by hoping that an ancient chinese oil will drain my ears - but it can't hurt.

If something miraculous occurs (which I doubt), I'll be sure to tell everyone. Until then ... peace and health to all.
