What is the cause of ear pressure with allergic rhinitis?

Eustachian tube: There is a tube that connects the middle ear with the top of the throat, intended to keep middle ear pressure the same as barometric pressure. When allergies cause enough swelling in the nose that this tube closes off, middle ear pressure goes down as the tissues absorb the oxygen from the air, but barometric pressure doesn't. This causes the ear discomfort due to nasal congestion. ...Read more

Rhinitis: Runny nose, sneezing/congestion are the cardinal symptoms of rhinitis, whether allergic or non-allergic. Swollen turbinates and clear fluid in ear (middle ears), are rather signs of inflamed nasal passages affecting middle ears drainage, yes you can have them without the classic symptoms in acute conditions, if long standing, better see an ENT for evaluation, good luck ...Read more

Why is one side of my nose is swollen doctor says allergic rhinitis and it causes me head pressure and tightness?

Deviation/allergy: In allergy , both sides of the nose are involved and the natural nasal cycle leads to one side more congested than the other about every 3 hours. If only one side is congested, then you need to consider a crooked nasal septum to be the problem. ...Read more

Viral, bacterial, allergy? I ate spicy food & got runny nose. Day 2 nasal congestion/headache/ear pressure. Then a dry cough gets worse on waking up!

Spicy food rhinitis: People often get running noses from eating spicy foods. Others might sweat. The spicy food can cause a mild reaction to the nose causing it to swell a little. This is the congestion. The spicy food can also cause more reflux which would irritate the throat which could cause you to cough. I hope this helps. I'm good health. ...Read more

Ear Pressure (Definition)

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
