Yes, I do quite often experience sounding like I am under water, my pcp told me to apply a little peroxide with a qtip just at the opening of my ear and that will draw the moisture out of the ear canal. I was surprised, but it really does work, I have to do that every 2 or 3 days.
The tinnitus drives my nuts sometimes because it will sometimes get louder than normal. It used to be that both ears rang at the same pitch, but not any longer and that is really annoying to say the least. I sleep with a fan at night to help cover up the ringing. It seems to run in my family. My grandmother had it, my sister has it so bad that it has caused her to go completely deaf in one ear and I'm not far behind her. As far as I know they haven't come up with a cure or even any relief for tinnitus, sure wish they would. I've had it so long that I can't remember not having it.
