Email I send to myself won't appear in my inbox

When I send an email to my own email address, it appears in the "sent" email but not in my Inbox.  Others can send emails to their own inbox, so i assume I have accidently changed a setting?
thanks!

Are you sending to your Gmail address, or to another address that forwards back?
Do you have any filters with "Skip the Inbox" selected?

I have this same problem. I do send email to my own domain email address and it forwards back. I'm unable to send an email to myself (the forwarding address) and have it arrive in the inbox. I can go to sent mail and move it to the inbox, but that's redundant. How do I fix this?

Add the other address as a "custom From address", and the messages will appear in the Inbox.

Gmail will display messages sent to any of your custom From addresses in the Inbox immediately, unless you have a filter to prevent it.  Check any filters with "skip the inbox" to see if they match your outgoing messages.

It does seem to be broken today.  I will ask a team member about it.
