Ears constantly plugging up. Back of skull very tender, regular headaches. Suggestions?

My ears are constantly plugging up like I am in an airplane. Especially when I lay on my stomach. I hear a rushing sound like the blood flow . I saw an ENT yesterday and had everything checked out. Was totally normal hearing , pressure etc. It has gotten a lot worse in the last 3 month. The back of my skull on the right side is very tender and I have had daily headaches to go with.

ENT Specialist 's  Response

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

I have gone through your query regarding constant plugging of ears and skull is very tender at the osterior part. You have this problem for last 3 months.

You have already examined by ENT specialist and on physical examination you were found normal. Considering yoursymptoms it appears as you may be suffering from-

(1) Hypertension.

(2) Sinusitis.

Thus you may get yourself examined for B.P., and do C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses, to rule out the pathological facts which may be treated accordingly.
