Ear pain

Ear pain... me too. Appt with ENT tomorrow.
History, surfers ear, aka bone growth in ear canal from surfing in cold NH waters in the summer and winter. Could be the cause but haven't surfed in years. Tinitis and hearing loss in the painful ear.
The ear pain started this spring.

Pain is unbearable on long ride with earplugs
Almost as bad without earplugs
Long rides at low speeds with no pain
Sleeping with earplugs no pain
I suspect loud wind noise causes the pain. Unfortunately wearing plugs only makes it worse.
Basically I'm F'ed, unless the ENT has some solution.
Start slow then ease off
