Ear fullness/hearing worse after waking up?

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone else notice that their symptoms, especially ear fullness and hearing loss get worse after you sleep/when you wake up in the morning.

    Each night, I would go to sleep with okay hearing and little fullness only to wake up with the symptoms. So far, it seems to happen every time.

    On a good day the fullness and hearing loss dissipates on its own. On a bad day it stays the whole day. And on a really bad day it progresses to a vertigo attack.

    I am thinking lying down for a long period of time has something to do with it? Or perhaps dehydration?

    Any suggestions?

    Hello,

    on my case, when i have ear fullness and hearing loss, i know that in 2 hours or less, i'll have vertigo crisis no matter what happens :(

    That was similar to how i was when it first started. But I’ve been noticing now that fullness and hearing loss doesn’t always lead to vertigo attack or at least less severe one now…

    just frustrating that I have to live in a fear that it “might” lead to one though.

    Very interesting as my fullness is always absent when I wake up. I've heard from others that this is usually the case for them as well, and that it builds back in a few hours after waking up. I'm not sure what the explanation for that is.

    That’s totally the opposite…

    I dread going to sleep knowing that my ear will get plugged up in the morning.

    I tried sleeping on an incline yesterday but didn’t seem to help.

    Hello Punture, My situation was exactly as you described for years. I could go to sleep doing much improved only to wake up in terrible shape. Something in the sleep perhaps. For years I could catch myself in middle of night grinding teeth. You have got to try a bite guard, I have used for 3 years now and greatly improved. Can get custom made guard on eBay for about $70, I recommend the teeth store there. Cheap and easy thing to try Punture!

    Waking up with attack symptoms is pretty new to me, I think it's only happened to me 2 or 3 times in the 10 years I've been experiencing this.

    My attacks are usually in late morning, or early afternoon.

    This disease is so heterogenous.

    I am pretty sure sleeping makes it worse. It even gets worse after a nap so it is not the time of the day.
