About a year and a half ago I was sitting at my computer when suddenly my ear popped as if I were up in a plane. It subsided but then the other ear popped. It lasted for about fifteen minutes. This continued every day and the lenght of time my ear/s remained clogged became longer. I finally saw a ENT. By the time I could get an appointment the problem seemed to clear up. He did say I had weak spots in my ear drums though and I should hold my nose while swollowing when it happens. No such luck. It came back this spring with a vengence with pain in my face and jaw. I saw a MD that very day and was told I had air bubbles and fluid behind the ear drum but there was nothing they could do about it. Is there anyone else with this problem and what do you do to relieve it?
