I have been having problems with my left ear for a couple of days now. It feels as if there is a pressure change going on inside my ear. The sensation is similar to when being on an airplane while it is descending, or when on a train and going into a tunnel (the ear "pops", hearing becomes temporarily impaired). But it isn't permanent; I usually only get it in the mornings and it goes away by noon.
What could be the reason for this?
My diet for the past few weeks consisted of ground chicken (contains potassium lactate), ground turkey, beef, shrimp, tilapia, flounder, cauliflower, spinach, butter, ghee, EVOO, and almonds. I am on a diet to control my psoriasis (it has improved immensely). What could be the connection between what i'm eating and the problems I'm having with my left ear drum?
