Inner ear pressure

I have been dealing with inner ear pressure for quite some time.
The ENTs have said that it is common, but I have no fluid build up.
It feels like being under water.
Has anyone else experienced this and hopefully someone can help me with ideas to relieve the pressure.
It very much creates balance issues.

I found some helpful discussions on the forum related to inner ear pressure relief ideas. Here are a few posts that might provide some insights:

  1. @Onandon03 shared about experiencing ear pressure similar to head pressure related to their condition. You can read more about it here.

  2. @Revolving mentioned a sensation of pressure in the ear and asked for ideas on reducing it. Check out the post here.

  3. @turnitaround recommended strategies like keeping your head up as much as possible to alleviate ear pressure symptoms. You can find more details here.

  4. @Janb shared their experience with cranial massage as a potential relief for ear and head pressure. Read the post here.

  5. Another suggestion includes herbal tea, staying hydrated, and avoiding activities that increase head pressure. Check out the details here.

I hope you find some helpful tips from these discussions!

I was misdiagnosed with eustachian tube disorder because of feeling ear pressure but it’s actually a common symptom of vestibular migraine. You’ve already said there’s no fluid in your ears so it seems that you’ve ruled out etd. I never found relief specifically for that symptom other than treating the migraine itself. Whatever medication or treatment works best for you should eventually ease the pressure along with your other symptoms.

Thank you for your help.
