      Since the day I got T I haven't been able "unpop" my left ear, nothing seems to work, opening my mouth, yawning, not even when perfoming valsalva.

      Do you have any problems to unpop you ear when you perform valsalvaa? I mean, even with T can you still unpop your ears?

      I'm just really curious since everyone I ask around me can unpop them (while performing valsava) without any problem, while I can't and I thinks it's very suspicious, that, and the fact that I can hear a crackling noise (only in my left ear) when I swallow or open my mouth. My aunt has T aswell but that doesn't stop her from poping her ears with valsalva. I would appreciate if anyone could share if even with T, they can unpop their ears without any problem.

      Thank you

      I've never been able to "pop" or "un-pop" my ears.

      @Asvalian I also can't unpop my left ear. The right one I can do,but it clogs up right away after I pop it. Have you been to an ENT?. I was given some nasal spray 2 days ago to use for a month and then I will have a follow-up. May be a "possible" eustechian tube problem.

      I definitely would not try keep popping your ears as could do more harm than good.
      See your doctor and he or she might prescribe ear or nose drops to help unblock your tubes......lots of love glynis

      I'm just curious. What is the benefit of "popping" your ears? How does it help?

      I believe it's not good to pop your ears doing the maneuvers that people read on the internet.At least , that is what I was told by my ENT doc.

      Before I got T I used to do that if I felt that my ears had a sensation of fullness, usually doing that would remova that.

      That's a muscle that moves the tympanic membrane.

      If you can't open the Eustachian tube you might very likely have under- or overpressure in the tympanic cavity which usually causes temporary T for there's pressure on the cochlea.

      Has anybody noticed any improvements in their eustechian tube problems while using nasal spray?. I have only been on the spray for only 5 days so far, and havn't noticed any change....yet

      @John G I've used a nasal spray for two straight months before, but it didn't do anything much. Idk, you might be given a different nasal spray from what I used, with different ingredients, so I don't know how that might work out for you

      Its possible a different type may help but I hate spending on stuff that may not work. I have done alot of that useless type of spending haha
