Hello everyone, I usually post in the anxiety forum but a friend told me that my issue could be due to my allergies. I have been having some issues with my ears lately that are absolutely driving me crazy. Last summer i visited the ER because I woke up and I had a rumbling sound in my ears. Nothing relieved it and any noises were intensified and distorted. The only relief I got was to put some cotton balls in my ears. The doctor cleared out my ears but it only relieved my symptoms a little. Two days later the rumbling was gone. Now the past few weeks I have been having this feeling of pressure in my ears...mainly the right one. Its not present all day it comes and goes but when its present its really annoying. The only relief I get is laying down. Now as far as my allergies I havent had a skin allergy test done but my doc told me I have nasal allergies I sneeze alot, itchy nose, ears, runny nose etc. Im scheduled to see my doc tomorrow but is was wondering if anyone here experiences this along with their allergies. Thanks guys.

Did the doc clear the outside (wax buildup) or the inside of your ears (through your nose)? If this was me, I'd be thinking of a sinus infection.

I would consider seeing an allergist and see if you can get some help. I get allergy shots and have no symptoms anymore.

If an allergy is causing irritation and a lot of mucus, it can build up in your sinuses and an infection can get in on top of it.

Hi Alcie...my doc checked my ears and said I had a build up of wax. He flushed the wax out through my ears but I didnt know they do it through my nose. He gave me a script for flonase and loratadine and blood work. My ears feel less stuffy for now and he wants to see me back in 6 weeks. I do want to see an allergist and will definetly share that with him.
