I have been really congested the past 5 days & the last 2 days my ears have been really stuffy. What can u do to get rid of painful stuffy ears?
Pseudo...: Fluid that builds up in cavities such as the sinuses or the middle ear can be treated over the counter with decongestant medications. Pseudoephedrine is an active ingredient of many such decongestants, which is quite effective. Speak to a pharmacist about which decongestant is the best for you. ...Read more

Got stuffy ears and stiff neck. found out i have hypertension. my bp reading is 138/90. he gave me losartan 3 mos refill.will i now take this forever?
Not necessarily: Sounds like you're ill - maybe a viral syndrome, middle ear infection, or flu-like illness. Once you're better, your BP may normalize. Moreover, if you avoid salt, exercise, and work towards optimizing your weight (if you're not already there), your BP will fall. Buy a cuff and start checking your own BP. You may well not need the med for long. Your BP is only a tad high. ...Read more
Stuffy ears,nose. Discomfort in adams apple and back of lower head in center when swallowing. Couple days now, not as bad as it was.
Likely a cold virus: You likely have a cold. As long as you can take ibuprofen, take 2 tabs every 6 hours as needed for the discomfort in the throat. Add chloraseptic spray, throat lozenges, especially those that have added zinc and vitamin C as directed. Use decongestants if you can take them for the ears, nose. See your doctor if you worsen or if no improvement by day 7 of illness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had headaches for 4 weeks, thought I had brain tumor. Now headaches are gone but have stuffy ears and ringing in ears? What could it be? 19 y/o female
Stuffy ears that won't pop with runny nose & cough? For about 1-2wks now. Not extreme pain (0-2). Affects 1 ear then goes over to the next. Help!?
Runny nose: Your runny nose is causing some swelling in the back of your nose, near the opening of the eustachian tube, the tube that connects your nose and your ears. Usually related to cold or upper respiratory infection or even sinus infection. Try some nasal saline irrigation to clear out the mucous. Can also try an antihistamine, if allergies. If bacterial infection, you probably need to see your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had lower rt wisdom tooth extracted 3 months ago using local. Tooth impacted took 1 1/2 hours to remove. Swollen still, clicking jaw, stuffy ears tmj?
Problems still: Swelling is the tissue response to an injury or infection. I would check with your dentist to see which of these exists. The clicking indicates you have a problem inside the joint and since the back of the joint shares structures with the ear, there may be a relationship there as well. That will require a more comprehensive evaluation and treatment as TMJ problems don't cure themselves. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

Sore thoat with little stuffy nose very lilttle drainage. Right ear feels clogged with little ringing in ear?
Cold virus: The cold virus can cause these symptoms. I would take some ibuprofen and sudafed (as long as you don't have high blood pressure) for 1-2 days. If the clogged, ringing sensation continues despite that, then see your doctor or urgent care. If you develop a fever over 101 then you may want to be seen sooner. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had sore throat, stuffy ears that sometimes have stabing pains and body aches for 2 weeks maybe more. Just noticed a swollen lump under my ear?
Flu like illness: These symptoms need further evaluation by a doctor. I don't know what 'risk factors' you have for any communicable disease, but I would want to look in your throat and check some blood work. It's possible you just have something like infectious mono, but u deserve a proper diagnosis. Hope you can see a doctor this week. That lump is a lymph node-your body is trying to fight this, but u need an MD. ...Read more
My ear feels clogged and has a low ringing or humming noise what should do? Just started this morning
Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However, your eustacian tube (tube that goes from the inside of the ear and empties into the throat) may be closed off. That can create the sense of pressure and may be causing the ringing (tinnitus). Hydrate well. Consider use of an oral decongestant. You might also consider using a product like afrin (oxymetazoline) which is sprayed in the nose. Make sure that you don't use it more often that twice a day for a max of 3 to 5 days. Your symptoms may be the result of congestion. ...Read more
