Question: Hello, for the past couple weeks I have been feeling fluid sloshing around in my right ear sometimes when I yawn or swallow. I don't have any pain or loss of hearing however. I haven't had a serious cold or been swimming recently. What could it be?

Brief Answer:
Mild eustachian tube dysfunction

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I have gone through your query; it suggests that you may be suffering from eustachian tube dysfunction.

In this condition I personally advised
1. Valsalva maneuver three times a day for at least for five minutes
2. Steam inhalation three times a day for at least for five minutes
3. Tablet fexofenadine 120mg once a day. This is a prescription drug.

But to reach the near diagnosis and to rule out other disease go for impedance audiometry.

Thanks
