Blocked ears and nostrils. Had ear surgery in the past. What is the reason and treatment? - Online Doctor Chats
Im looking at an ENT query
How can I help you today?
I feel very heavy and stuffy in my ears and always feel the ears are blocked
I had a small surgery performed on my ear around 10 yrs back
It was becuase of excessive usage of ear buds , where the water was depositng in the ear and got infected
The ENT who performed with wom im in touch says if i work out or run, the bolckages would clear
My entire Head is most times heavy and i also snore very badly when im very tired, or have slightly excess quantity of alocohol
This develops slightly lack of slp and have morning sickness
after certain time im most active at my office and very actively take my day till late in eveining
I feel wetty in the ear and feel heavy, which again prompts me to use buds to clear it and ensure comfortable hearing
Pls advice what needs to be done
I need to know a few more things to help you better.
Pls tell me
First I need to know your age and gender.
34 / Male
Do you have a history of allergies?
I think you feel heavy in the ears because of blocked nose.
As the middle part of ear is connected to nose by a tube
Secondly you need to get your ears examined by an ear, nose , throat specialist
I have been using Otrivin, it gives me geart relief, but afriad im getting used to it
Yes routine use is not good
I also would recommend that you stick to a good lifestyle
Like hygienic food and clean water use.
Daily exercise and fruits also help.
Im actively involed in sports and play badminton regularly
Will do that
That is good
I will again emphasime clean food and water as you may get recurrent infections of ear, nose, throat.
After a head wash you need to clean ears with ear buds
You may also try swallowing, coughing and yawning to help with blocked ear secondary to blocked nose.
Do you have any other question?
I think thats it for now
