hi i'm a healthy 21 yo male with no past medical history. for the past 4 months my left ear has been bothering me i can't stand using a headphone in that ear.

Whenever i stimulate my throat there is a strange feeling in my left ear sorta like there is trapped liquid in there i hear so roaring sound. this happened after a month of feeling so sick i dunno wat virus i got but icudn't leave the bed for about a month cuz i wud feel lik im going to faint whenever i used to walk or stand up.

now i still feel tired very easily and anxious most of the time. I don't know if this tiredness is related to my ear cuz i get tired after feeling nausea and its aggravated by sounds and walking.

what i mean by stimulating my throat is lik when i tightly close my mouth or just simply touch the ceiling of my mouth with my tongue i hear sorta lik an ocean roar in beats. sometimes i also hear my heartbeat in my left ear but not all of the time.

could there be something wrong with my throat or ear ? I've seen an ent abt 2 months ago cuz i was feeling off-balance all the time and i did the tests along with the caloric testing and there is nothing wrong with the labyrinth n i dun have vertigo.

some days i feel very nauseous and dizzy and i think it might be related to this. i believe tht liquid tht seems to be trapped in my head is giving me anxiety which makes me feel dizzy?

i tried many decongestants including nasal steroids to no avail. i'm going to see another ENT soon i hope something could be done about this cuz i believe if tht feeling in my ear goes away i will finally feel normal again.

I've had an MRI once and CATSCAN twice of my head so there is no tumour or anything. I had countless blood tests for my dizziness and nothing is wrong except low platelet count.

any ideas from ENT specialists or anyone out there will be much appreciated!
