Both ears had a problem. But now only the left ear. I guess I need to 'pop' the ear so air can stabilize on both sides of my eardrum. I have been going into the steam/eucalyptus room.
Long ago, an ENT tried to teach me the hold my nose and blow (with mouth closed) method. I never was very successful with that.
I also have tinnitus and a hearing loss. The hearing loss is unrelated and I have hearing aides.
Things that should work: yawning, drinking and swallowing, the method described above....
I am taking Zyrtec daily for allerdies and I just re-started taking Mucinex.
I have not yet tried a warm heating pad or moist warm towel.
