OK guys: Decided to explore an ear symptom survey. Might follow up with an eye/vision specific one later
It’ll be multi-select, you just have to say which ones you have experienced.
Here’s my draft set of symptoms.
- Never had tinnitus with my MAV (no new sounds)
- Ear fullness
- Cracking sound from neck/jaw every once in a while often initiated by a yawn or opening the mouth wide when e.g. eating
- Hissing Tinnitus
- Pulsative Tinnitus
- Roaring Tinnitus
- Humming Tinnitus
- ‘Pure-tone’ beeping tinnitus
- ‘Industrial whine’ tinnittus
- Very loud spike in pure tone tinnitus occasionally
- Tinnitus in one ear usually
- Tinnitus in both ears usually
- Constant tinnitus
- Tinnitus only occasionally
- Increase in tinnitus when bending over too far (“Sound of the sea”?)
- Increase in tinnitus when clenching jaw
- Increase in tinnitus when turning neck to extremes.
- Increase in tinnitus after a meal
- Intermittent light Clicking/Ticking sound
- Muffling of hearing for a few seconds when rising from bed
- Bubbling, dripping, gurgling sound often when rising from having been reclined
- Dulled hearing, especially in morning
- Hearing own voice occasionally
- Ears ‘pop’ spontaneously every so often
- Feeling of ear pressure (e.g when travelling in car or train)
- Sound distortion around loud noises
- Intermittent ear pain in one ear
- Intermittent ear pain in both ears
Any sensations I’ve missed? Anything I could phrase better?
