Brief Answer:
Hello

Detailed Answer:


This is probably what's called Eustachian tube dysfunction--blockage of the tubes that equalize the pressure across the eardrum.

It can be treated with a course of prednisone or a cortisone injection but she needs to have a doctor check it out and also make sure she doesn't have wax impacted in her ear canals
