i'm a 24 years old male compiling of muffled sound both my ears specially when i wake up from sleep then return normal gradually maybe take 2 to 1 hours also i fell the same symptoms when i removed my hearing aid ( i already have unexplained sensory-neural hearing loss 11 years ago )
this symptoms begin maybe 3 years ago .
what i afraid there's swelling in my right neck i think its lymph node located at (level lll )single ,small ,rounded, 3*3 cm in size attached to the underlying muscle.
so is there any correlation between this muffled sound + lymph node enlargement + tinnitus .

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Tinnitus and muffled sounds are with sensorineural hearing loss and taking hearing aid out worsens it. Node swelling could be due to many benign conditions like cold flu or ear infection, later case though can worsen tinnitus. Treatment is mostly supportive.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
