    First, definitely agree with others to check w/ dr. to see if blocked and to get flushed if needed ( or do at home if you feel comfortable doing so)

    If not consider being evaluated for TMJD. I have the sensation you describe, it is from TMJD. The inflammation from it can be so severe that it can cause terrible earaches and add to your headaches ( am assuming headaches as seems *most* me/cfs patients have one or more kinds of headaches going on all the time )

    good luck !

  5. I have this, but have never found a medical provider that knew what it was.

    I've had this since ME onset, a full, blocked up feeling, plus the usual tinnitus/hyperacusis/dizziness that comes along with ME. My best guess about what it is in my case (not having asked a doctor about it yet) is secondary endolymphatic hydrops.

    I get blocked ears mainly due to taking the anti-hypertensive drug Nebivolol. I am keeping it reasonably at bay by doing the Valsalva manoeuvre every day - several times some days.

    I did used to get it before I started taking Nebivolol as well - cause unknown. Maybe my previous anti-hypertensive?
