I am experiencing the following symptoms:

Ringing in my ear
I can hear sound from my body (moving my eyes, heartbeat, breathing)

I had ear surgery for otosclerosis a couple of months ago on my left ear. But the condition of my ear stayed the same. Six weeks later when my doctor told me that I should notice improvement. I still can't hear well on my left ear. However, lately I have noticed that if I pop my ear, pinching my nose at the same time, and hold it that I can hear perfectly fine on my left ear. Once I let go I feel my ear is plugged and can't hear well. Anyone that might shed light about my condition? I suffered for eight years. I was anticipating improvement with my surgery but it turned for the worse instead. I'm desperate for relief.:confused:
