Ear Pressure (Definition)

Pressure in the middle ear is ideally equal to environmental pressure. It is corrected by the eustachian tube, which connects from the middle ear to the back of nose. The popping that occurs when one goes in an airplane is the eustachian tube opening to equalize ear pressure. When pressures differ, the ear drum can be sucked in or bulge out. With this fluid can accumulate ...Read more

Ear pressure for 9 years constant everyday dizziness and anxiety could this be allergies?

Ear pressure for 9 years constant everyday dizziness and anxiety could this be allergies?

Not likely: Eustachian tubes drain the middle ears empty into the far back area where the nostrils meet the throat. Allergies cause these tubes to get clogged, and can result in fluid backing up into the middle ear, right next to the inner ear. This could cause balance issues, even dizziness, but usually not for months or years. Anxiety? Consider allergy medication side effects of decongestants, steroids. ...Read more

See ENT: Assuming this is a one-sided loss, here are some of a number of possible diagnoses, all of which should be evaluated by an ear, nose and throat specialist: 1) sudden sensorineural hearing loss - need to see ENT asap; 2) cochlear-variant meniere's disease (symptoms usually fluctuate); 3) vestibular schwannoma (aka acoustic neuroma). ...Read more

I've been dealing with dizziness, nausea, and ear pressure for the past 2 months. What qualities should I look for in an ENT for these symptoms?

Otologist: Any ENT can evaluate & treat these symptoms. Otology is a sub-specialty of ENT that deals strickly with ear problems. These specialists are an excellent choice. They are usually located in the big cities. If you live in a more rural area, make sure the ENT has specialized testing (electronystagmography or video nystagmography). ?You may have menieres syndrome. ...Read more

Been having dizziness (not lightheaded), neck pain, eyeball pain, ear pressure all right side. Headache back of head, right side. What could it be?
