Plugged ears: This is a great question and it really addresses the normal anatomy of the nose and ears. The middle ear and nose are directly connected by way of a tube called the eustachian tube. When you blow your nose, air is forced into the nose and up the eustachian tube. This will cause an increase in pressure in the middle ear, which will quickly dissipate with swallowing. ...Read more

Many ways: The most common answer you will get from docs is "allergy meds". In addition, avoidance of the allergens is a powerful solution, but often difficult to achieve. Rinsing away those allergens from your nose can be hugely successful. Consider using a daily nasal rinse of saline.

An ENT surgeon can help. ...Read more

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
