Water Behind The Eardrum Symptoms
It is not water: The fluid in the middle ear is not water. It is usually blood serum secondary to negative pressure from Eustachian tube blockage.

Water in the ear: Sometimes, nothing happens. Often, it is uncomfortable since water does not feel good when it's in the middle ear. It's kind of like water going up your nose.
