    Eustachian tube has been blocked for almost 2 weeks

    I've basically had a plugged ear for over 2 weeks now & am not sure why. I haven't had any real illness issues although every so often when I'm cleaning, I'll get what feels like burning sinus pressure behind my eyes but Nasal spray generally takes care of it. Aside from that, I'm clueless as to what's causing this. I've tried various ear drops,soaking in hot water,even plugging my nose & ears & blowing but everything fails. My ears constantly make a popping sound & can itch &/or tickle a little bit at times but just will not open up. I just this morning got a terrible nose bleed absolutely out of no where which made me worry also wondering if it's related to my ear at all. I plan to call my physician on Monday but am still hoping that maybe someone might have some possible answers whether being from personal experiences or are educated in this area. I just want some ease of mind at this point!

    That happened to me last summer. Doctor gave me a course of prednisone. Opened it up but it closed back up. Sent me to ENT who scoped my sinuses, learned I have polyps. Did a sinus CT. No clear reason for the blockage. Did another course of prednisone. That did the trick.
