Ear problem : A “closed” eustachian tube can be caused by many factors but by 6 weeks should start to open and would recommend an evaluation by an ENT specialist

Eustachian tube: See your GP. A blocked eustachian tube should be managable by your GP.Unlikely to clear up after 6 week on its own.. Your GP will refer if required.
