Just woke up with the right ear clogged. Like i need to pop it as if on airplane. It's been about 6 hrs now. Yawning no help. Feels like pressure too?
My ear is blocked (pressure and lost hearing) after using the neil med sinus rinse. I tried yawning to pop it and a q-tip. How can I unblock my ear?
Wax Impaction: You probably moistened a near complete wax impaction and made the blockage complete. This may require an ENT doctor to fix but you can try dissolving the wax. Debrox and Cerumenex are good at this. I suggest repeat usage several times a day until the wax dissolves. If it doesn't after a day or two time to see the doctor.

If you have no voice, the cause is much more likely to be viral (ie you don't need antibiotics). Use Afrin nasal spray over the counter in the left nostril for no more than 3 days to clear up your ear Push clears. Don't take an antihistamine (thickens mucus as side effect). ...Read more

Dizziness, tired, ringing ear, head pressure, maybe eye pressure, sort of restlessness, yawning, kind of heavy head. What's up?
Afrin (oxymetazoline): Try afrin (oxymetazoline) or try performing a valsalva maneuver - pinch your nose and gently "blow" air out of your nose while at the same time bearing down like you are lifting something. This will force air up your eustachian tube and expand the middle ear and prevent traction on the ear drum which is what causes the pain and fullness during descent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
