    What's causing wet sensation in my ears?

    3 months ago, both my ears started feeling wet and I developed tinnitus in my left ear. I have seen 2 ENTS who've checked my ears. They both concluded my hearing was normal and there was no fluid in my ears. They said there was nothing they could do about the tinnitus as this was probably due to damaged hairs in the inner ear. The last ENT thinks the wet sensation must be referred from my temporomandibular joint. I went to see my dentist and he thinks my jaw is fine, but made me an occluvial splint as theirs evidence i've been grinding my teeth. I have worn this to bed for the last month. When I wake up in the morning, I feel almost normal- but the wet sensation in both ears comes back later in the day. I would therefore like to know whats causing the wet sensation in both my ears?

    Note, t I've had an acoustic brain MRI scan. This came back clear. Also, my neck was giving me a lot of pain when my symptoms first started and it still aches a lot. Could this be causing the wet feelings?
