What's it mean when ur ear hurts when u burp?

Muscle movement: You have a muscle called the levator palatini that straightens the tube between the middle ear and your throat. When you burp it triggers that muscle to stretch & it can change the pressure across your ear drum. It would do so more often if the tube is partially blocked & and air moves through it.

Eustachian tube: Probably due to Eustachian tube congestion; this tube connects the inner ear with the back of the nose and throat. If you have no voice, the cause is much more likely to be viral (ie you don't need antibiotics). Use Afrin nasal spray over the counter in the left nostril for no more than 3 days to clear up your ear Push clears. Don't take an antihistamine (thickens mucus as side effect). ...Read more

Eustachian tube: The tube that drains mucous from your middle ear is likely swollen due to the cold. It can open and close when you chew or "pop" your ear and such maneuvers allow the air in and the pressure change can be uncomfortable. This will usually resolve over time as the swelling goes down.Ibuprofen should help for the pain. If it in not improving gradually, have it checked. ...Read more

Left ear hurts when swallowing or burping after itry to clean my left ear. And I can hear my heartbeat. Any fix?

Ear wax impaction: You have likely pushed ear wax deep into the ear canal and up against the eardrum. When you swallow or burp and create a pressure gradient through the middle ear cavity, the eardrum typically moves to accommodate the change, unless something is preventing it from effectively doing so.
Best fix? See your primary doc to check what is going on in your ear. Please no more using q-tips to "clean" ears. ...Read more
