      So I just recovered from a cold and a sore throat that went on for a week. My throat, which the left side was affected, still hasn't fully recovered. Sometimes my left ear feels blocked. Even when I pop my ears, my left ear will get blocked once again when I swallow my saliva for example. I thought it might have had to do with drinking cold water, but after drinking a glass of hot tea, I had the same thing happen. This doesn't cause any pain or loss of hearing, but it really feels uncomfortable. I still have some phlegm in my throat, so idk if that might have anything to do with it. I really hope someone is at least able to explain why all this is happening, and I really hope it can totally go away.

      I should also add that when I blow my nose, sometimes I feel this 'air rushing' feeling in my ear too. I guess that's how I can describe it

      Ears are the last to recover after a cold.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Sinus Infection?
      My tinnitus came from a sinus infection and I have also been hearing a clicking when I swallow. I believe it's because there is mucus in the eustachian tubes that hasn't completely cleared. This can cause our ears to feel plugged from time to time when swallowing. Steam definitely helps, as well as warm liquids.

      Thanks for the replies! Mike, I also have a clicking sound but those don't disturb me. So far driking hot water helps, hopefully it goes away soon
