ENT referral: If you are experiencing constant unilateral ear symptoms, it is best to see an ear/nose/throat (ENT) doctor for further evaluation. You should have a more formal hearing and physical exam to help the doctor determine if any further tests are needed. The most likely diagnosis is a blocked Eustachian tube (which is generally benign) but other conditions should be excluded.
