Default Ear Poppin

Another one of lifes problems brought to you by thriller.

Anyway, I went to the pool today and jumped off a high balcony in to the water, and when I came up from the water my ears were completely blocked with water and my senses were all fucked.

Since then a bit of the blockage has gone away and I can hear nearly as well as I could before swimming, but its still blocked and bothering me bigtime.

I tried holding my nose and blowing in to a kleenxex to pop my ears, and I called a pharmacy and they told me to lie on one side then lie on the other side and it should eventually get back to normal.

But being that its currently aggravating me like crazy, any advice on how to terminate the problem immediately? I've read some stuff on the web on products to get and I'll go to Shoppers if need be, but if theres another magic way of doing it without buying that would be more preferable.

Sleep on it before you go buy anything, it will go away.

Get in a run competitive run somewhere. It will go away without you even knowing it.

Hold your nose and keep your lips shut and puff your cheeks out to make your ears pop a bit. And then jut your jaw out. Try chewing some gum as well.

I have a similar problem, I hear a popping sound in my ears whenever I swallow. What sometimes gives me relief is pinching my nose shut, closing my mouth and blowing. This will open the Eustachian tubes because that's the only way air can leave your body at the moment, and might relieve the blocked feeling if the problem lies with the E.tubes.

If it's just water, it'll get better on it's own. If it's wax or, more specifically, water behind wax, then...

Murine Eye and Ear Care

I have to do it every couple years or so. It's amaaaaaaazing what comes out.

Methods I use:

1) Plug the nose and create pressure in the sinus cavity and hold it (not such that your head explodes).

2) Shake the head back and forth

3) Create suction with my palm and my ear (swear to god)

4) My favorite which is relatively unused, stomp your feet one at a time. It seems to loosen things up.

I pull down on my earlobe, plug my nose and jump up and land on the heel of my foot on the plugged side.

doesn't sound like your ear needs popping. you just need to get the water blockage out, right?

whenever i have water in my ear, i do as the pharmacist recommended with a little extra leaning over and forcing my head down side-ways with the troubled ear facing the ground.
