Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However you may have congestion causing your eustachian tube to dysfunction. The eustacian tube drains fluids and pressure from the inside of the ear into the throat. Too much congestion can create pressure against the tube, so that it shuts off. In your case, your tubes may only be partially closed off, so that that things like swallowing, opening your mouth or yawning may open it up. You can take oral decongestants for this and/or consider using a nasal spray like advil (not to be used more than twice a day for a maximum of 3 to 5 days). ...Read more

I have a really sore throat, it hurts like crazy to swallow, ear's hurt and cannot pop, one side of my throat is bigger, hurts to eat and drink.

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more

I have otitis media with effusion and my ears have been slightly popping all morning when swallowing, is this good or bad?

Likely improving: Eustachian tube allows middle ear mucous to drain into the throat & air to circulate behind the ear drum. As the infection begins to clear, you will often have periods when the tube opens for a period letting air in (popping) or periods where it is still full of fluid or closed. I see the feature as a sign things are improving. ...Read more

Try nose spray: You may want to try a nasal decongestant like afrin or neosynephrine for 3 days as directed. There is a tube between the inside of the ear and the back of the nose which gets swollen when you are sick with a cold, etc. The sprays can help sometimes decrease swelling and open up the ears and help you pop them gently. You can also take a pill decongestant which might help. ...Read more

Eustachian tube: This is normal for post-nasal drip. Your ear canal is connected to the upper sinus cavities through something called the Eustachian tube. When your sinus drainage is thick, it can cover the opening. This isn't dangerous, but to help relieve this symptom, you can take allergy pills or a nasal decongestant such as Sudafed.

I can make sound (cracking/popping) inside my right ear and also comes when swallowing. Is it eusthacian tube disfunction? Could it cause deafness?

I can make sound (cracking/popping) inside my right ear and also comes when swallowing. Is it eusthacian tube disfunction? Could it cause deafness?

Tmj vs etd: Crackling sounds in the ear can either be related to problems with the jaw joint or tmj, problems with the eustachian tube or etd or tinnitus. A way to tell is to open and close the jaw with a finger placed in the TMJ socket which is roughly the pocket created when one opens the mouth and places a finger directly in front of the ear canal right at the level of the sideburns. Deafness unlikely. ...Read more

Last 2 weeks I had congestion only. Thought it was allergies. It went away. Now, left ear hurts everytime I yawn or swallow. No fever. No "popping".?

Eustacean tube prob: It sounds like there may still be a little congestion of the eustacean tube which connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx. If the ear hurts all of the time or feels plugged, it may be an ear infection. It may respond to a decongestant. Give it time. ...Read more

I have pain underneath my shoulder blade, neck pain, crunching in my jaw and popping in my ears when I swallow, are these related?

I have pain underneath my shoulder blade, neck pain, crunching in my jaw and popping in my ears when I swallow, are these related?

Some of them YES: The shoulder area RHOMBOID muscles are enervated by nerves from the neck C 5& C6 - therefore your neck pain could be linked. An MRI may help to explain
Your jaw and ear plus swallowing could be involve but start solving the problem one step at a time
Good luck
