What can I do to alleviate this pressure in my head/ears ?

For the past year I have had pressure (sinus?) in my head. The only way I have relieved this presure has been to depressurize my head by holding my nostrils and blowing like you do when you are scuba diving. The pressure in my head is only getting worse. What can I do to alleviate this pressure in my head/ears??? I am a 35 year old man, healthy...

 I hope and pray that by the time I reply this message the headache shoiuld have subsided. IF this pressure is there since long time I am sure yu should have seen a Doctor by now. Did not he give you medicine? Simple thing if you have untolerable pain do not hesitate to take a pain killer. Do not blow the nose too hard as it may rupture yoiur ear drum.

Last night I went to bed, and within a few minutes I felt an almost flush feeling in my ear. I got up to look in the mirror and had blood running down the side of my face coming from my ear. I tried to clean it and soaked up approx. 10-15 q tips, before it seemed to be clean. Went back to bed within 5 minutes it happened again, mire blood running from ear. If I put a q tip in my ear now there is still some bood but not as much as before. I haven t had any injury, haven t been exposed to loud noise, no flights, scuba, swimming or other pressure or temp changes. Was not picking or cleaning it, and only used q tips after it started bleeding.Also no pain, although now does feel a bit like I have been swimming and got water in my ear but I haven t. Any idea what might be causing this? Thank you in advance for an help -Maggie

On February 14 in the evening I started to hear music in my head. It has continued all day and night. I had a CT Scan and there nothing wrong with my brain. I saw my ENT and she found nothing wrong with ears but I feel a slight pressure in my ears. I was given anti-depressant medication by my Internist to take at night to help me sleep. That does help but the problem with the music in my head all day and night does not go away. Who should I see about this problem? Thanks. Mary
