Hearing loss is not fun and I have not thought about the Iodine possibly helping my hearing. I'd been having a swirling sensation around my ears while on the higher level's of iodine. It started in my right ear which is where I have the most hearing loss and TMJ. Lately, I've started noticing a large amount of this swirling in both ears. My right ear feels thick and heavy and I've had extra secretions in my ears. Sometimes it feels like fluid is coming up from behind my ears and feeling my ear canal. When it stops filling up it feels alot like swimmers ear and if I don't clean it out it drives me nuts. One day I pulled out a cotton cleaner from my right ear and the fluid was gray. That still has me wondering?
