I was just walking down the hall at work, when I realized I was hearing sort

of an echo or something of my steps in my right ear. Maybe it wasn't so much an echo as a reverberation....



This is the first time I've ever noticed anything like that. It ceased when I stopped walking.



Any idea what it could be?

the echo in the hall.



I assume it's a corridor with a stone floor and lot's of glass in the area, you get echo's in those, only to be heared when it's quiet

I don't think so... I have walked down that hall several times a day for the past year and a half. Plus, it's carpeted, and later when I went outside, the sensation was still there.

I have felt something similar with water in my ear. Had you taken a shower or been in water earlier in the day?

I'm thinking it might have been from exhaustion! The sensation persisted for the rest of the day, but so far today I haven't experienced it. I'm a little less tired today than I was yesterday.



I'm pretty paranoid about my ears, since I spent 18 months dealing with a patulous eustachian tube in my other ear.

Could it be your sinuses? Sometimes, when they're acting up I get anything from a ringing ear to feeling like I'm in a tin can. It's not always balanced.



I'm not sure how exhaustion effects your hearing. Is it a result of dehydration? I have all sorts of hearing ailments, but I'm not always sure why they occur.

I think I likely have a perforated eardrum. I didn't have any symptoms since when I posted, but they're back again today.



Not too happy about this, but I only have myself to blame.
