Re: Clogged ears
Jul 4, 2008
I'm so glad I found this message board! I too have had an annoying ear problem for over one year. Mine started when I got a really bad flu/laryngitis/bronchitis. After the laryngitis went away I then had this problem with my left ear (actually in the beginning it was both ears), with my hearing muffled and clogged, lots of popping but never stays open. When it is at the worst, I hear my heart beating and feel sick. I feel and hear also little fluttering noises. It mainly happens when I am at home and I am convinced it is due to allergies (but don't know what). It gets worse as the night goes on and I am continually trying to clean out my ear (which doesn't help) and pop my ear-which instantly clogs again. It drives me nuts! What helps is to tilt my head to the left (towards the clogged ear), and to sleep on this side. It is then better in the morning, then starts all over again, but almost instantly improves when I leave my house!

I tried replacing the carpets with hardwood floors and this did nothing!. I do have 2 dogs and one bunny (but the bunny is in a playroom area). I am on Flonase, not sure if this does anything or not. I saw an ENT who thinks this is all from reflux, but then why would this happen mainly at home? I am taking Prilosec and my reflux feels much better but the ear is the same. But this may be the answer for some of you with this problem???

I have never met or known anyone with this problem and anyone I tell thinks I'm nuts so I don't talk about it any more. All I know is I would pay a million dollars to have my old normal ear back! God bless you that have this in both ears and those who have it much worse. I feel your pain...
