    Ear problem help
    So I have been sick since Monday night. I got a sinus infection. My ears were a little clogged nothing too serious. Today though I woke up and felt fine, but after I blow dried my hair my ears got clogged super bad. I tried popping them and one of my ears got unclogged but now my right ear feels full and won't pop. I also feel a bit dizzy. It's scaring me because it won't even make a clicking noise like my other ear did. My doctor's office is closed so the only place that is open is the ER. I always have this problem when I get sick and I feel like I will get permanent damage because of how many times this occurs. I have seen a specialist and he didn't help at all. He said the ears look fine, but I should use nose spray everyday to see if that helps. I have been doing that but doesn't really seem like it's helping at all. What do you guys think I should do because nothing works? I have done ear drops before but those don't help at all they just get stuck in my ear and then makes the problem worse. Right now I'm trying Vicks on a cotton ball to see if that helps any. Any suggestions would be so helpful right now. I'm scared I will lose my hearing one day.

    If you are in the United States Walgreen's and other Urgent Care places are open most of the time and they can diagnose and prescribe what you need. I went to Walgreen's when I had a sinus infection once and the nice lady gave me drugs and it went away. My ex-wife used to get them and I never understood how painful they can be until I got my first one. Holy crappies they can hurt.

    Your ears have to drain constantly down the back of your throat in tiny amounts you don't notice. When your tubes are swollen, the mucus can't get down your throat.
    NEVER pop your ears!
    Get some anti-histamine like Benadryl.
    Drink lots of warm liquids so your mucus can be runny instead of glue.
    Keep your neck warm.
    Don't aim a hairdryer or a fan or any air source at your ears, and stay away from AC.
