Eustachian Tubes: Drink plenty of fluids and use gentle saline to try and open your sinus passages and your Eustachian tubes. Blowing out your cheeks and swallowing or blowing into a straw with the end blocked by your finger, will help. For persistent symptoms, see your doctor. All the best and feel better.
