Eustachian Tube Sx: If you are feeling "popping or dripping" in your ear, or ear pressure without infection, this could be Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (ETD). Symptoms can occur after a head cold, Throat infection, Sinus infection, Seasonal Allergy flare, or from chronic environmental irritants (ie dust and smoke). Try Claritan D or Flonase for 3 weeks, see your Doc or ENT if not better. ...Read more
