Weird Ears

Can anyone help with this one?

Since last new year I've had a problem with my ears. It started with tinnitus in one ear which I think came as a result of a cold. Since then, intermittently (every other week ish) my ears have felt sticky. The tinnitus also returns (albeit mildly). It stays for a few days and then goes again but is really annoying when I've got it. Usually the back of my throat/ roof of my mouth also feels inflammed (but not where you'd usually get a sore throat).

I've seen 3 GPs who can't see anything wrong with my ears or ear drums. Can anyone help? It's driving me insane!

Do you mean waxy sticky? I've had tinnitus for years and find my ears are prone to more wax than most.

No, it's more inside the ear - it's hard to pop the ear and when/ if it does pop it squeaks. Also, certain noises or frequencies sound really echoey and make my ear feel like it's vibrating inside.

It's so annoying, I just wish someone could help.
