Using ear plugs for sound sleep, have pulsating headaches, sinus. Is it due to tight-fitting ear plugs?
I use earplugs at night to block out my wife s snoring . I recently changed to a smaller, seemingly more effective plug. However, it also seems to correspond to chronic headaches of the pulsating sort. These seem to be related to sinus issues. Do tight-fitting earplugs interfere with the eustachian tubes and consequently sinuses? I get some relief with sudafed and aspirin but it isn t long term.
Hi. The tight ear plugs can cause headaches, they can interfere with Eustachian tubes but can not cause sinus problems. Now there are effective ways to reduce or stop snoring for your wife. This will help her and you too to get sound sleep.
