I have been suffering with dizziness and a blocked ear for almost a year and a half tried everything to try and fix it in the end I had a gromet put in my ear on the 2nd Nov this year when I first woke up from the anaesthetic I was completely deaf which freaked me out then I had extreme pain for a week went to GP no infection I have the same thing as everyone else the cotton wool feeling and the whooshing hearing your pulse thing although I don't seem to be hearing that as loud as it was luckily My pain has got better my dizziness dose seem slightly better less pressure in my head I have ENT appt on the 24th so will see what they say sadly I have lost my job through this of 10 years I have been very down and had panic attacks when I get dizzy I'm only 33 years old and I feel like my life is on hold I just pray that my ear gets well just so I can live my life again and success stories would be nice to hear from anyone even if a small improvement will update after my appt I really wish everyone on here the best it's a horrible thing to have

hi there.
i have also recently grommet surgery-left ear and the same feeling of fullness/blocked ear plus that lovely pulsatile swoosh everyones talking about. my husband thinks I'm going mad. and my ENT whom i've been back to see 4 days after surgery says theres nothing he an see wrong with my ears. so go figure.
Im hearing you. hang in there and maybe get a second opinion which is something i will be seeking if this sensation doesn't alleviate within 7 days time.

I have had a history of tinnitus and catarrh since 1978 and between 1978 and 1983 have had 2 grommets put in my left ear and 4 grommets in my right ear...swallowed it would cause loud bangs in my ear......worse......also a perforation in 2007 in the left ear.......the ears got worse last year after an infection and when I ning my hearing has gone very deaf......severe pain in the left ear...dr said it is swollen of the hearing and then the left ear drum was sucked right in and pressing on the bones in the middle ear........so a fortnight ago I had grommets put in....yet again and then and red......and to cap it all...I have horrific load hissing in both ears with a rumbling and loud roaring in head or ears..........I also have a tune come on which I feel I can hear it in my head from somewhere in the distance....but it is in my head and can't switch it off.....life is hell...................I cannot cope.
