When you turn your head or press on your neck, you are restricting that flow, hence the changes in the intensity of the sound.

CT, ENT exam, tymp test, &audiogrm normal: Cause of ear fullness & muffled hearing? Hard to hear myself singing mid-range/using facial resonators.

Eustachian tube dyfx: you are likely suffering from Eustachian tube dysfunction. The Eustachian tube lies between the middle ear space and the back of the nose.

If your ears do not pop, you may need a nasal steroid. Good luck! ...Read more
