Default Full feeling in both ears - what could the cause be?


Hi,

Recently, I've had a bad case of ears feeling very very full and
heavy. I can hear fine, but its just an annoying feeling of feeling
very full (like when you think swallowing will help but it doesn't).
I was curious if there were any typical causes for this. To give you
a sense of my recently activity and environment:


- Used hydrogen peroxide on ears about 3 days ago to clear up wax
- Weather is abnormally humid here
- Pollen season is increasing - more allergic organisms around
- However, no other cold symptions - no runny nose, no fever, slight
sneezing
- Highly stressed out at the moment at work and in life
- Not getting 8 hours of sleep
- Exercise routine feels more difficult than normal (could be lack of
sleep)
- Slight feeling of tiredness (could be lack of sleep)


Any ideas you may have on why the fullness in ears is happening would
be very very helpful for me. Thanks.

Default Full feeling in both ears - what could the cause be?


Hi Andrew,

I'm having the same problem. Oddly enough, I did the
peroxide thing myself just a few days ago as well. I went
to the doc to have it checked out, and he said it didnt look
like an infection, there was no redness or anything like
that. He said that it was probably my allergies (hayfever
like you) and not to worry about it unless pain increased.
So far I havent found anything that is helping... I would
suggest though, to take something like a decongestant if you
tollerate them. For me, I am fairly certain it is just an
affect from allergies. Where about are you? im in the
valley in Oregon, one of the worse places in the world for
allergies. Oh Joy! )

hope you feel better soon,

aero

Might be a difference in pressure between your ear and your sinuses.
The sinuses might be swelled because of a seasonal allergic reaction.
An OTC antihistamine like Benadryl or Zyrtec (by prescription in the
US) to lessen that response or a nasal spray like Rhinocort (by
prescription in the US) to ease the swelling of the sinuses.

The decongestant might make your sinuses think they need to secrete
more mucus in response to the allergens, so if you take a
decongestant, it might be better for it to be a
decongestant/antihistamine.

My guess would be weather related and seasonal allergies. If that's the
case, while it's uncomfortable, we usually just have to stick it out. Nanny

A feeling of fullness in the ears can be caused by a number of things, from
cerumen in the ear c****, to negative pressure or fluid in the middle ears,
to hydrops in the inner ears. You've ruled out cerumen by having your ear
c****s examined. You may have fluid in your middle ears, but probably not
because your physician did not see signs of infection. So that would leave
the inner ear. The feeling of fullness, then, can be a precursor to
endolymphatic hydrops that involves the cochlea, the vestibular system or
both. Your condition could stay static, it could worsen with or without
other symptoms such as some hearing loss or tinnitus, or it may
spontaneously get better. Watch your diet for foods that are loaded with
salt.

could be an infection that doesn't hurt. Had that once. I had to have a
tube inserted like a little kiddie when I was 42. LOL the ear doc said I
was the oldest patient he had ever had to do that to also. Worst thing
about it was he attempted to numb the ear drum with a shot, which didn't
work, and the minute he started to slice the tiny little hole to isert
the tube I felt the whole darn thing. I told him keep going as he had to
be about done already & he did finish it. The amazing thing was the fluid
build up behind my ear force it to gush out & that relief was immediate.
I had to where an especially made for me ear plug when I showered or went
swimming for several years till it came out on its own which it did.
