How to open the eustachian tube? I believ mine is blocked because the pressure of my headphones are causing me to feel like im going to pass gas/explode, etc
Hi.: Hi. First off - please take off the head phones and keep them off until the pain has resolved. Trying pinching down both of your nostrils so that no air flows through them. Now, with you mouth closed and your nostrils pinched closed breath hard (like you were bearing down to have a bowel movement). This pressure might be enough to temporarily open the eustachian tube. However, if that doesn't work consider use of an over the counter oral decongestant - by reducing congestion/ swelling it may take pressure off the eustacian tube which may be pinched off. Consider use of a nasal spray like afrin. It is quite powerful but shouldn't be used more than twice a day for three to five days at the maximum. Maybe you could limit headphone use. Take care. ...Read more

Fluid recurrence will only occur if the tube become blocked. ...Read more

My right ear feels blocked with ear wax if I use ear drops will it make Eustachian tube dysfunction worse in that ear? Or should I get it flushed?
What's in the ear?: The doctor will want to know what is in the ear. He has to look in the ear. Otherwise, he has to guess what's in the ear... unless another doctor just cleared out the canals. If so, it is presumed that nothing is in the ear canal. In a normal person, without a hole or a tube in the eardrum, ear drops will not go beyond the ear canal, so most drops will not directly affect the eustachian tube. ...Read more
