Eustachian tube issue

Hello all,

I seem to have trouble getting my left ear to pop by pinching my nose and blowing out. It does pop when I yawn, and I don't really feel any pressure, but I just can't get it to pop by using the pinched nose method. the right ear pops fine.

My ENT has me on Varamist and Singulair, and I'm also taking Sudafed. I've been on this treatment for about 3 weeks now, to no avail.

Does anyone know why my ear won't pop when I pinch my nose and blow out, but will when I yawn?

Many thanks,


Sponsors Lightbulb
