How Can Nasal Obstruction Cause Clogged Ears?

MBBS, MS - ENT, DNB

How Can Nasal Obstruction Cause Clogged Ears?

It is very common for patients with nasal obstruction to develop clogged ear as well. The back of the nose opens into a tunnel also known as the Eustachian tube. This tube goes up to the ear. In case the ears get clogged the pressure is released by popping of the ears. This is achieved by swallowing, yawning, and trying to blow the nose. When ear pops the tunnel opens and allows the pressure to release from the ear.

Reasons why nasal obstruction causes clogged ears:

  1. Mucosal Swelling: When the nose is obstructed, the nasal lining might swell thus making it difficult to breath. This might also lead to swelling in the tunnel of the ear causing it to shut down. Sometimes an ear pop does not happen in this condition and this is called as Eustachian tube dysfunction.
  2. Negative Pressure inside the Nose: In nose obstruction when the patient tries to breathe through the nose there is negative pressure. This might build up near the opening of the Eustachian tube or the back of the nose. This pressure gets transmitted to the ear and results in a negative pressure in the ear which leads to the clogging of the ear.
  3. Bernoulli's Principle: This principle states that in case of an inviscid flow, increase in speed of the fluid happens side by side with a pressure decrease.

Causes of Nasal Obstruction:

Obstruction or congestion of the nose leads to a stuffy and inflamed nose. In minor illnesses like fever, cold, sinus infection and flu stuffy nose can happen. This congestion might last for a week. In case the congestion is long term then the causes for it are:

  1. Allergies and hay fever
  2. Chemical and environmental irritants
  3. Septum deviation
  4. Chronic sinusitis that has lasted for too long
  5. Nasal polyps and benign tumors

Symptoms of nasal decongestion are runny or stuffy nose, painful sinus, and swollen nasal tissues along with mucus buildup.

Treatment for Nasal Decongestion:
Once the nasal congestion has been found and the cause behind it has been analyzed, then treatment is must. Treatment usually includes prescription medication or over the counter drugs. Medication of the nasal decongestion involves the following:

  1. Oral Antihistamines: These are helpful in treating allergies. Common ones are loratadine (Claritin) and cetirizine (Zyrtec)
  2. Nasal Sprays: Nasal sprays which contain antihistamine like azelastine (Astelin, Astepro)
  3. Nasal Steroids: Examples of this are mometasone (Asmanex Twisthaler) or fluticasone (Flovent Diskus, Flovent HFA)
  4. Antibiotics
  5. Over the counter or prescription decongestants

Is it normal to have watery yellow wax in ears almost daily that need cleaning? I clean my ears with ear bud. Wax is very sticky yellow. I have noticed few ear hair also fallen ( stuck on bud after removing wax).

Using ear buds for wax cleaning is usually not advised as its a blind procedure and may lead to injury to eardrum, better to consult a nearby ent specialist.

Follow thorough check up and tests to diagnose whether it's tonsillitis or adenoids or something else, then go for homoeopathic medication.

I have been suffering from chronic sinusitis. I have got streptococci. Mucus accumulates in sockets of right eye and finds problem. Slight feverish feeling and the occurrence is frequent. I have tried for cinnabaris200, a homeopathic medicine. But not a good result. Taking steam inhalation. But the matter is very embarrassing. I want to get homeopathic medicine advice. I raised this question two days ago. But an allopath answered which I do not like to take.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Homoeopathy is the right choice of treatment for Chronic sinusitis. You should take kali Bich. 200 ch , 3 drops in the daily morning and Hydrastis 30 Ch , 3 drops in daily evening. Echinaecea 1X , 2 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 7 days. Take care.

My nose bleeds frequently n my eyes turn red due to summer. And I hav a heavy head ache what can I do.

PGDHHM, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
For nasal bleeds, bend forward and pinch your nose for 5-10 min. As it is due to hot weather, you can apply cold compress too. Wear sunglasses while going out in sun. Drink plenty of liquids. Take over-the-counter painkiller if intolerable pain. Hope this helps you.

Is Bluetooth earphones (wireless) are harmful than normal earphones? Please reply.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
Is Bluetooth earphones (wireless) are harmful than normal earphones? Please reply.
There are two issues here - one is the radiation that is emitted. Second is the decibel level at which one uses the head phones. All standard branded models of cellphones have specifications written on them (on the Manual). So it can be safe if you are using a good cellphone which adheres to the standards. It would still be wise to use the cellphone sparingly or as it is needed and avoid radiations. The headphone should not be used for long intervals of time as it came be harmful in the long run. (The incidence of ear infections may be high and also hearing loss may be another risk) Use it at a minimum audible level. Use speake phone when possible.

I am having tonsils for the last two days and taking d cold total but every 12 hours the fever comes back and also doing gargling with salt water (hot) which provides temporary relief from the pain. Should I consider moving onto antibiotics as they make me feel very weak and upset my digestive system somewhat. If so which group of antibiotics should I opt for.

1. Do warm saline gurgling 2-3 times daily 2. Take throat lozenges, 3. Drink warm/cold fluid to ease pain 4. Have smooth/semi solid food, 5. Take adequate rest 6. Take a full course of antibiotic for 10 days after consulting ent specialist (to avoid recurrence), 7. Take analgesic like paracetamol/ibuprufen for throat pain.

This seems to be AOM ie Middle ear infection leading to Swelling of ear drum and severe pain. In situations like this you just give any pain killer like Combiflamm and give steam. Contact any ENT specialist ASAP.
