  • Ear pressure

    For the past couple of months, I have been experiencing a pressure in both of my ears, mostly in the morning time, as if there is a large build up of wax. I did a cleaning with a mixture of white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, which yielded no results. I haven't had an ear infection in years and I had my wife look inside and she could see nothing that would be causing these symptoms. Any ideas?

I am going to ENT....everything I'm reading says hyperparathyroid at that level always means I either need some parathyroid glands removed to lower the level or I have an adenoma on my parathyroid -....
