Re: Ear Feels Clogged/Won't Pop
I had a "stuffy" ear for over a year. It wouldn't pop no matter what I tried. My ENT and Audiologists couldn't find anything wrong. Eventually my ENT even offered to put tubes in my ear. I declined that though because I knew there was something else going on.
I do have severe allergies, but had been on 4 allergy meds and shots at the time so that didn't seem to be the problem.
Turns out I have TMJD. My lower jaw was displaced back towards the ear a bit because my TMJ disc had slipped. My only real symptom was the stuffy ear and eventually some ear pain after a couple months.
If you don't get results from your other strategies or tests, it might be worth looking into.
