This could be...: Could be time to see one's primary care doctor and explain the symptoms plus their timeline. Some people get changes in air pressure in the ears, similar to when they go up or down in an airplane or tall elevator. When pressure releases and equalizes, there may be a brief hissing and then the hearing is better afterwards. If there is persistent hissing or ringing in the ears, an ENT doctor helps.
