What is Sinus Pressure in Your Ears?

Do your ears feel full? Are they stuffy? This is sinus pressure in your ears. Sinus pressure in your ears results from congestion. It can be temporary, but when caused by chronic sinusitis, the pressure may not resolve for weeks or even months without intervention.

The issue you’re suffering from could be eustachian tube dysfunction.

Eustachian Tube Dysfunction - What is it?

The small tubes that stretch from your middle ears to the upper part of your throat are called eustachian tubes. These tubes are intended to help equalize the pressure in your middle ear. Pressure in your ears maybe caused by an obstruction or an improperly functioning eustachian tube. Inability to clear your ears, relieve pressure, may be diagnosed as eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD).

When ETD is present, your eustachian passageways are plugged and can result in:

  • Loss of or difficulty hearing
  • Discomfort or pain
  • The feeling of your ears being full or plugged
  • Ringing sounds
  • Tickling
  • Clicks or pops in your ears

These symptoms can also be the result of middle ear or ear canal problems.

Eustachian Tube Dysfunction can cause loss or difficulty hearing plus other painful effects.

Eustachian Tube Dysfunction - How Does it Happen?

Causes of ETD vary. ETD is often triggered by allergies, common colds, and changes in altitude. This disruption may have happened during a hike, going up or down a mountain, while flying in a plane, or even in an elevator.

If you have chronic sinusitis, you are more likely to experience eustachian tube dysfunction.

For short-term relief, explore sinus infection remedies you can try at home. For long-term relief from sinus pressure in your ears and sinusitis, read about Balloon Sinuplasty below and consult with Dr. Gilmore at North Texas Sinusitis Center.

Surgery or taking a constant stream of medications are not your only options. Balloon Sinuplasty, also known as the Balloon Sinus Dilation procedure, is a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure that can bring you relief from nasal blockages, the sinus pressure in your ears, and sinusitis.

Balloon Sinuplasty will enlarge your sinus openings, restoring drainage and relieving your sinus pressure. This relief comes without the risks of surgery, which permanently removes bone and tissue from your nose. You can expect to experience relief and return to your normal activities within 24-28 hours.
