So for the past two weeks, I have been suffering from sore ears / pain that feels almost like equalization pressure when u dive/get off a plane etc..
I have been to an ENT and dentist to check for problems / infections but there are no obvious signs of issues. Ear pressure tests are all good, visual inspection was fine, teeth are fine etc...
Its definitely worse in the mornings when I wake up, which may be pointing to a stress related issue of jaw clenching/grinding (not visible in tooth wear), while I sleep. Chatting to the dentist for solutions to try and take that out of play (bite plate) currently.
When I now try and warm up or do lip rolls or lah exercise (I've been getting back into it lately), I sometimes (not always) feel like I need to equalize, pointing to some kind of pressure issue/ blockage somewhere...
Has anyone else experienced this? Are there ways to monitor that I am not in fact somehow "singing into my ears"?
It's really been a painful few weeks, and just want to make sure I am not somehow causing the issue when I sing/train?
Thanks all !!!
