It Feels Like I Have Liquid In My Ear When I Yawn Or Hold My Nose And Blow What Is That
Pressure change: The middle ear is a closed space, except for a "pop-off valve" called the eustachian tube. The maneuvers you describe can force the eustachian tube open leading to some small pressure changes in the middle ear. This may be the sound you are hearing. You might also have some actual fluid in the middle ear. A quick ear exam can help differentiate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yawning is opening the mouth semi-voluntarily while taking a long, deep breath of air. It is a type of reflex action controlled by the brain (a person cannot yawn on command). Yawning is normal, and usually due to drowsiness or tiredness. However, excessive yawning that happens much more often than normal may be caused by vagus nerve signals, due ...Read more

Eustachian tube: The eustachian tube opens with yawn or swallow and contracting palate. When the eustachian tube is swollen due to sinus congestion, allergies, virus', pressure changes or with cerumen (wax) impaction in ear canal, stuffy sensation can occur. This is treated with nasal steroid spray, decongestant and gentle autoinsufflation of ears (pinch nose and blow). See physician with persistent symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Sore throat. Runny nose stuffy at night. Ear feels like their is liquid in it and everytime i swalllow it hurts my ear.
These symptoms: Without a fever may or may not prove infection. Pressure in sinuses and ears can cause pain. There is congestion as proven by the ear and the pain on swallowing may just be irritation of the throat and the nerve. You will need decongestant/antihistamine and perhaps a nasal spray but your doctor should decide whether you need antibiotics or not. Go get examined and find out. Good luck. ...Read more

Tympanic Membrane: Hi Charles, It seems that the debrox solution is leaking from your external ear canal into your middle ear, at which point it is draining through your nose (see image). This suggests that you have a perforation of your ear drum, or your "tympanic membrane" and that's how the debrox is leaking through. I suggest you have a doctor take a look in your ear canal to confirm if here is a perforation. ...Read more

Plugged ears: This is often from congestion in the nose often from a cold or allergies. If it is from a cold, one may try an OTC nasal decongestant spray for up to 5 days (and no more). If from allergies, one may try an OTC nasal spray for as long as you need. If problem persists, see doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ventillation problem: You are having a dysfunction of your eustachian tube, the tube from the middle ear to the back of the throat. This tube allows equalization of the pressure in the middle ear and drains fluid and mucous. You may have allergies or a viral infeciton. If this has been going on for some time, see your pcp, allergist or ENT doctor. Further evaluation may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sinus rinse: I would recommend that you rinse your sinuses with something like the neil med sinus rinse kit. The issue with the hearing is likely related to some of your secretions getting into your eustatian tube(it runs from your middle ear to the back of your throat) and middle ear . That should get better with time you could also use decongestants to help (psuedoephedrine). ...Read more

Eustachian tubes: The tubes in the back of your nasal passages that lead to the middle ear may be blocked by congestion and mucus causing this symptom. Irrigate your nasal passages with warm salt water and instill a nasal decongestant spray like Afrin to relieve the congestion. See an Otolaryngologist if symptoms persist or worsen or if a sinus infection is suspected. ...Read more
My ear has been plugged for like four days and I tried to hold my nose and my breath but it hurts ?
Many ways: The eustachian tube connects the very back of your nose to the middle ear. This tube is generally collapsed shut at rest and must be opened to allow the pressure to equalize in the ear. The tensor tympani muscle passes around the opening of this tube and when contracted helps to keep it open. You can do this by swallowing, yawning, chewing gum, or attempting to blow out your nose while swallowi. ...Read more
