Eustachian tube dyfx: When you are yawning the popping you are having is caused by air rushing into the ear when your eustachian tube is opening. The eustachian tube is a tube that connects your ear to your throat and opens naturally when you yawn or swallow. Try popping your ears by plugging your nose and blowing hard. Your ears should pop open. This is called a valsalva maneuver and is very effective.
