From this study (3 weeks ago):
at first I lost hearing on my left ear for several weeks with pain, eventually hearing came back. Then it occurred on my right, eventually recovered hearing. But both ears had extreme pressure and now tubes were inserted. Left ear recovered from pressure but continue to have pain. Right ear sounds as if I have water inside and I hear myself as if I'm talking inside a closet or enclosed room, only in my right ear. But both ears hurt like if my ears are being pulled downward.
