Hello I have been browsing the internet for months trying to find somebody with a similar problem. I am 30 years old, live in Canada and for the past 2 years I have had the constant feeling in my right ear that it needs to be un-popped/constant pressure. I am constantly yawning or swallowing or plugging my nose and blowing out but nothing seems to work (sometimes it will provide relief for a minute or so, but then it goes right back to feeling "popped" again). I have been to the doctor and an ENT several times about this and they did hearing tests, looked in my ear and said everything looks totally normal (and no hearing loss). I am BEYOND frustrated, I spend most of my day (everyday) thinking about it because it is such an uncomfortable feeling! I get really depressed and feel very alone because other people do not understand what I'm going through and how awful it is to be consumed by thinking about it all the time! Any advise would be very much appreciated. One thing I am very thankful for is that I do not have any hearing loss or ringing in my ear. I appreciate anyone's thoughts or advise! Thank you in advance.View Thread
