Suffering From Ear Pressure
and Ear Fullness?
Ear pressure and ear fullness is a common and frustrating issue that occurs when a patient has a sinus infection or ear infection. Caused by the structures of the inner ear becoming clogged with fluids, ear congestion can cause an uncomfortable pressure behind the ears that may muffle hearing and cause ear pain. While ear pressure can be experienced alone, we find that many of our patients exhibit their ear congestion with one or more of the following sinus and breathing condition symptoms. If you find you suffer from ear pressure coupled with the following symptoms, treatment with Dr. Elangovan may help you find the relief you’re looking for.
- Mouth Breathing
- Facial Pain
- Neck Pain
- Poor Sleep
- Nasal Obstruction & Congestion
- Ear Infections
What Causes Ear Pressure and Fullness?
The most common causes of ear pressure and ear fullness include ear infections and sinus infections. These two conditions involve the structures of the inner ears becoming backed up with fluid, creating swelling and pressure behind the ears, eyes, nose, and other facial features. If you’re unsure what’s causing the pressure and pain behind your ears, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Elangovan. He’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your condition, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you get back to living a healthy and happy life.
What are the Dangers of Ear Pressure and Fullness?
Ear pressure and ear congestion aren’t inherently dangerous to the body, however, they do give our patients a great deal of discomfort. Many patients who suffer from chronic ear pressure find that they also suffer from consistent ear pain, muffled hearing, and poor sleep. When left untreated, these symptoms can cause a great deal of distress to our patients, making them less interested in activities they once used to enjoy and giving them trouble focusing on school, work, or regular daily activities.
