Blocked ear - TMS?

    Hi there

    About a month ago I started getting a blocked ear in the morning. It feels my left ear is underwater and everything sounds muffled. It usually only lasts until the late morning/afternoon but today it has been particularly bad (it's been all day and still no sign of leaving).

    The fact that today has been particularly bad makes me think it could be TMS. I drank quite a lot of alcohol yesterday and I've been feeling quite stressed recently.

    I've had TMS before - back pain/shoulder pain and wheat gluten intolerance but I managed to cure those a long time ago. I've only read one TMS book: 'Healing Back Pain'.

    Any thoughts? Should I read another book? Which one?

    Hi, albertmac. Many people with TMS say that besides Dr. Sarno's books, they found most help from Steve Ozanich's book, The Great Pain Deception. You may just need a boost in confidence that your ear problem, is TMS. You say you had a lot to drink over the weekend, so that could mean a sort of leftover hangover. Also, you have been stressed lately. That could mean TMS wants you to work on your emotions.

    I suggest you begin the Sructured Educational Program, free in the subforum of this web site, to discover what those troublesome emotions are.
