I have a weird condition that, out of nowhere, the hearing in my right ear gets severely muted and replaced with a sound like the vibrations of a tuning fork. This only happens like twice a week for about ten seconds each time. The "tuning fork sound" is not loud, but it is pretty much all I can hear out of my right ear during that ten seconds. My left ear never seems to have this. I believe both ears work fine, because I always pass my hearing tests fine. It has been a while since I had a hearing test, but I have had this condition since I can remember. I did used to have really bad earaches when I was a kid, and I almost needed tubes (bleh!!!). Anyone else have this or experience this ever?
