Eustachian Tube: You may have a blockage in the Eustachian tube - this is opening in the back of your throat to equalize pressure in the middle ear. You may be getting acid reflux affecting this area. Clear.ease Lozenges (www.grossan.com) are enzymes to reduce swelling; taken one 4x a day helps to reduce swelling at the opening.
