From this study (1 month ago):
I was only taking tramadol for 4 days and had pain in my ears followed by a feeling of intense air pressure. Then sound diminished to only being able to hear my husband shout at me. Then it was like a metallic sound and high pitched. Also had a constant loud drumming in my head. (like the sound a fridge freezer might make but 10x louder which increase with any sound entering my ears.
From this study (2 months ago):

Feels like pressure in both ears, as if fluid trapped in inner ears.
