Infection: Upper respiratory infxn &/or ear infxn with eustachian tube involvement can cause such findings; may be viral or bacterial. Decongestants like sudafed may relieve "clogged ears". If throat sore or purulent drainage or fever over 101º see doc for eval. May need antibiotics if bacterial infxn.
