@karinzeigler Although I was diagnosed with Menieres, I've not had episode for many years. Now I have tinnitus, hearing loss, and a "feels like there's a bucket on my head" stuffy feeling. Finally got a name for it – occlusion – but can't find anything on it. I can't find anyone who seems to know how to solve the problem – I refuse to spend $6,000 for a hearing aid that, since it fits inside my ear, makes the problem worse. There was a link for Menieres to a blog, I think, but I've lost it.

I can relate to the stuffy feeling. I never heard of occlusion but I do have echo-like sounds of my own own voice. Thank you for the information. The echo in my ears drives me crazy. I purchased the $6000 hearing aids – they help me when my ears are not stuffy but still have problems when my ears are stuffed up which is most of the time. I just read about some hearing aids by SeboTek that is supposed to help occlusion. I don't know anything about this company or their hearing aids but wondered if anyone has heard about hearing aids for occlusion . I do not drink milk or eat any milk products, & very little salt. I will definitely stop the chocolate and see if that helps. II have tried some decongestant but it did not help me.
