My ears feel swollen after using a headset for a few days. Anyone have any experience with this?
About a week or so ago I started wearing a headset similar to
this (behind the head, over the ear style headphones) to listen to music late at night. The next day I noticed that my ears felt stuffy or swollen, kind of like the headphones were still on. But the feeling went away after a day or so.
But after wearing the headset for a few hours over 2 nights, the weird feeling came back and it hasn't gone away. I started feeling around in my ears and the funny feeling appears to be coming from the inside part of the
tragus and orbital conch areas, which feel like they're slightly swollen.
This really isn't a big deal, but it's pretty annoying to walk around with this weird feeling in my ears all day.
I've never had this happen before and it started when I started wearing the headset so I'm pretty sure that's the cause. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this or have any explanation?
