Can someone please help ? In the mornings my ears feel blocked although I know the ear drum is clear and a CT scan of sinuses shows normal. As the day goes on this sensation clears. My doctor doesn't know what's wrong.

  • Do you make a point of trying to yawn in the AM? Try chewing gum. You can also try an old pilot's trick. Tip your head toward your shoulder, hold your nose and blow gently then with increasing force. This will "pop" your ear canal & may relieve pressure. Some people cannot do this successfully. Hope this helps.
