This is happening since about 2 years now, I think. Whenever there is any kind of high volume noise/music, or when I put on my headphones, the sound in my left ear seems to crack (like when you set your laptop speakers to 800% volume) and I can feel is vibrate inside. My hearing is fine in bother ears in most cases - I hear low and medium volume sound fine.
Also, when I try to clear my ear with cotton buds, my left ear seems to create some sort of pressure difference when the bud is inside - and it feel like air is coming out from inside - not even touching the walls of the ear. I don't feel any air coming out normally when I breathe. A bit of a search showed me that people have a hole in their eardrum, but they have air coming out if they close their node and try to blow - that doesn't happen for me.
I'm not really sure what's wrong - does it sound something serious? My hearing is intact since the last 2 years so I haven't really had it checked out.View Thread
