Ear Like One-sided Congestion Accompanied By Headaches Behind The Side?
Good evening Doctor, I want to ask my left ear feels like it’s clogged (it feels like a long ride in the car) well sometimes it feels and sometimes it doesn’t, if it feels like it can be accompanied by a headache, as notes have already been checked by the doctor tht and the doctor has seen with the camera into the nose for nasal passages to the ear there is no blockage that can cause air pressure in the ear to be disturbed, the initial diagnosis is due to nasal congestion, but after using antibiotics, rhinos sr and nasal spray drugs these symptoms still occur, what are the causes and what which must be done to recover soon, because honestly the taste is very unpleasant, in addition to being clogged I do some massage in the area behind the ear which I feel is enough to reduce the blockage sometimes.
Parts of the human body namely the ears, nose and throat are interconnected with one another, so that if there is a problem in one of these parts, the other parts can also experience a symptom.
The feeling of the ear like something is blocked or there is a full sensation on the inside of the ear can occur by various factors, such as the narrowing of the Eustachian tube, the channel that connects the middle ear and the back of the nasal cavity, the narrowing generally occurs when a cold or nose occurs congestion, so that there is a difference in air pressure in the middle ear and air in the nose / free air where the condition is what ultimately causes a sense of feeling blocked or full in the ear. Symptoms caused by narrowing of the tubes can be relieved, for example when nasal congestion symptoms or colds improve, the eustachian tube is no longer narrow, so the air pressure in the ear and nose can be more or less the same.
In addition to colds and nasal congestion, narrowing of the Eustachian tubes can also occur due to barotrauma, which is a condition that occurs as a result of being in a high place (such as flying a plane, climbing to the top of a mountain) or it can also while diving into the sea so that there will be discomfort in the ear and which is already heavy even accompanied by pain. Mild symptoms caused by barotrauma that are still mild can also be reversible, so that the symptoms can disappear by themselves.
But once what Perewa experienced must be studied in more depth by a doctor, through direct examination and conduct more targeted question and answer sessions so that you can get a picture of your health condition much clearer, because from the information that Perawa conveyed it still could not lead to a certain disease conditions.
Parewa can try to chew gum when traveling to high areas, on a plane, or when a cold / nasal congestion can help reduce the feeling of full / stuffy in the ears.
