Seasonal or daily variation in symptoms. Inspection of the nose First look at the external nose. Ask the patient to remove any glasses.
I stupidly flew twice in that day with congestion, ended up with a blocked ear on landing, and it soon turned into a double ear infection. The infection cleared with antibiotics, but it has been a struggle ever since to keep my ears -- especially the right one -- open.
It's truly the worst health issue to have ever hit me, and I have had my share in 38 years. This is the one health thing that I am never able to completely ignore So I can understand your frustration and fear.
I am fighting the same kind of battle myself. For the past two days the pressure in my right ear has been intense and very debilitating, so I know exactly how bad it gets and how horrible it feels to try to live a "normal life" while walking around with what feels like cement in your ear canals.
I definitely feel better when I lie down at night to read or watch a movie.
And when I wake up in the morning, I'm always hopeful that a miracle cure has happened, because the symptoms don't kick in right away. It is a crushing blow.
Have you had any problem with ringing or tinnitus in your ears? In the early stages of my ETD, this was really a problem for me. Luckily this phase seems to have subsided, and I found the triggers that bring tinnitus on for me and avoid them.
Have you had a hearing or audiology exam? During this exam, it is usual to do a procedure called a tympanogram Mine comes up abnormal, indicating the eustachian tube isn't doing its job keeping my middle ear properly pressurized, hence the discomfort.
Do you feel like you need to "pop" your ears? The reason I ask these questions is that there are a few other conditions that can cause a feeling of fullness and pressure in the ears, including TMJD which I apparently have and Meniere's disease.
MD actually affects the inner ear, but fullness is one of the four symptoms. I am wondering, too, if you might not only have some eustachian issues going on but some fluid in your ears.
I can tell the times when my ears are fluid-y because different ways of tilting my head actually gives me the sense of fluid moving in my head.
Kind of like a snowglobe full of gluey gunk.
To reassure you, it is unlikely that a brain tumor is causing the problems I will be fighting this problem to the bitter end and am trying to share all my findings online. It also serves as a kind of journal for me, so I can refer back to it and remember what happened when, if that makes sense.

Then around in April one night my right ear started feeling clogged up and it has pretty much felt like that ever since with an occasional relief that lasted maybe a day or two, and then in May I started noticing that once again during the mornings whenever I would tilt my head down I would once again get that really bad pressure in my ears, but by the afternoon it would be gone and I would think of it no more in till the next morning.
All that was bearable in till the middle of June when the ear pressure started getting really intense when ever I would get up at start walking no matter what time of day it is, and it has been like this ever since, and it has ruined my whole life, I can't even go out shopping anymore, or clean my house, it's a struggle to even go to the grocery store becuase within just a few minutes of being there the pressure begins and it is so intense, and the more I walk around the worse it get's, and if I continue to walk around I then begin to get this wooshing heartbeat sound in them, and these symptoms wont go away in till I go somewhere and set down for a while.
