It hasnt really bothered me until now though. Two days ago it started hurting. If i blow my nose at all, it feels like my ear will explode and is painful when i swallow . I don t know what to do about it! I saw a doctor and they said to continue with the drops and see what happens and this hasnt helped at all! thanks

ENT Specialist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding blockade of your both ear for last two months and now it became painful on swallowing.

Considering your problem it appears that your ears are blocked due to-

(a) Wax.

(b) Eustachian tube dysfunction.

But the possibility of impacted wax is much higher, and it may be treated by softening the wax by puting wax softner drops followed by ear cleaning by succession or syringing.

In case of eustachian tube dysfunction which is having least possibility in your case, it can be treated with antibiotic, decongestant and steam inhalation.

Please get yourself examined by ENT specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
