I have been experiencing ongoing war popping sensations as if I have gotten off a plane for the last two months. For the last few weeks, I have experienced slight ear pain and symptoms of tinnitus. I have tried an ear wax removal kit but still have underlying symptoms.
I could not understand what is the point of removing wax here without observing the ear canal. Please get it very clear, your eustachian tube (tube connecting the backside of the nose and middle ear) is blocked and some maneuver (Valsalva maneuver) under supervision will surely help. What you can try at home is take steam inhalation, chew food, or chewing gum in an exaggerated way as it may open the tube. Stretch your ear a bit and you can try putting your little finger inside your ear and move it 10 -15 times. Tinnitus may go away once the tube gets back to its normal position. Avoid caffeinated drinks (tea, coffee, alcohol). If you have it even after that follow up with me.
