I am now 6 1/2 months post-op and really didn't expect to develop any new symptoms at this late date, but for the past few days, my tinnitus has just about doubled in volume. I also have a lot of pressure inside my AN ear and my balance is slightly worse than usual. I tried OTC ear drops because I thought ear wax might be causing this problem, but apparently that wasn't the culprit. I have e-mailed my doc, but haven't heard from him, so he is probably enjoying a well deserved weekend off. I'm sure he'll get back to me by tomorrow, but thought I'd run this by all of you in the meantime. There was a new development this morning today too. When I first woke up this morning, I had no tinnitus at all while I was laying down. Shortly after getting up it started again and is just as loud as it has been for the last few days. Has this happened to any of you?
