don't be anxious but try to know the proper health education for your discomfort.
i appreciate you as you have chosen the right thing.
ear is divided into 3 parts
middle ear is connected to mouth cavity means to the external environment, to maintain pressure balance.
pressure equalizes during deglutation/ ywaning.
so we fell opening/clogging sensation.
during sleep we swallow sputum so may feel discomfort.
collects in outer ear
it never goes inside as outer & middle ear is seperated by a membrane.
it expelled out naturally during chewing which is beyond our feel!
yet if we try to clean it 1.we push it inside
2.may rupture the membrane
so ther is no need to clean it at all!!
so don't panic.
i think it will help you.
you can consult a e.n.t specialist also.
