I’ve just remembered another ear related problem that I had for a few years. Sometimes I would wake up with one ear feeling full or blocked and my hearing would be slightly impaired. Early on it was quite random but after a few years it would last for a couple of days and then a couple of weeks. It really affected my day to day life as i had real trouble hearing and my hearing isnt great anyway.
I’ve always gone to audiology departments and ENT specialists at local hospitals about my hearing and I now have hearing aids but each time I went i would ask them to check the pressure on my ears and it was always fine.
One day I decided it had to be related to something I was eating even though I never had an immediate reaction to anything.. i guess it was delayed. The first possible thing I found on the internet about it was wheat and gluten so I cut that out and I’ve not had that problem since!
If those symptoms began around the same time that I developed candida then I have had this for around 12 years
