So when my ear popped on Friday doing skin the cat I assumed it would work itself out shortly. Well three days later it still felt closed accompanied by a low level ring in the ear. I went to the gym today hoping I could undo whatever I did. Strangely enough it did seem somewhat better after a decent pushing session.
Although the low ring in the right ear is still there, I can definitely hear better than I could out of that side when it first happened. My non-expert opinion is I may have perforated my ear drum somewhat from the combination of high exertion while being upside down. Damage to the ear drum can cause ringing. From what I read ear drum damage basically heals itself eventually but I still wouldn’t mind having somebody look in there.
Cindy posted an article to Facebook that claims that people that post their workout routines to Facebook have psychological problems. Tell me something I don’t know.
Today I saw somebody with the phone to his ear while doing back extensions on the roman chair, a new first. SMH
