The Ear Cannot Hear Suddenly?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, yesterday I was walking on Sunday again, suddenly my right ear felt as if I were on a plane or to a high place like the peak. I tried to yawn, swallow saliva, and press my ears with my hands because they usually eliminate them, but this time there was no change. Finally I decided to keep it quiet, and after a while the budek disappeared. Tomorrow and his pockets, his buddy will occasionally appear, but it will only disappear in a few seconds. Today, Wednesday, I am in the midst of activities and then the budek appears again, and this time it doesn’t disappear like before. I saw on the internet, and what I read said that they had previously caught a cold or a cold and that it was caused by a cold, but I didn’t have a cold or the flu. Previously I was healthy. Does my ear have a problem or what?
Hello Rigel! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Between the middle ear and our airways, there is a tube that connects the two. This tube is called the Eustachian tube. This tube serves to regulate air pressure in the middle ear, so it is balanced with outside air pressure. This tube is also important for draining fluid from the middle ear. The Eustachian tubes open and close when we yawn, chew, or swallow. If there is a blockage in the Eustachian tube, symptoms will appear as you mentioned. This blockage causes air pressure in the middle ear to decrease, so that the ear feels full and there is hearing loss. In addition, sometimes patients also feel the sound of crackling or clicking when chewing or swallowing.
Blockages in the Eustachian tube often do occur in patients who have the flu or other infections of the upper respiratory tract. However, this is not the only cause. Changes in altitude, such as diving or flying can also cause this disturbance. In addition, allergic reactions can also cause these symptoms to appear. Failure of the Eustachian tube opening and closing system when it evaporates or swallows can also cause this disorder. Often, the blockage in the Eustachian tube does not require special therapy and will improve by itself after a few weeks. You can try the Valsava technique if you are not experiencing a cold or an infection in the upper channel. The trick is to cover the nose and mouth, then blow from the cheeks to try to expel air through the ears. This technique is used to equate air pressure between the middle ear and the external environment. If after a few weeks, the symptoms do not disappear or become worse, you should immediately see an ENT specialist. The doctor will check the condition of your ear to see if there are any disorders that need to be overcome by certain actions. Your doctor may also give medicines to reduce the symptoms that you experience.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
