How to Pop Your Ears – Sinus Pressure Relief

How to Pop Your Ears Having clogged ears can be uncomfortable and
can dampen your hearing. When this happens, popping your ears can be useful. Popping your ears is generally safe. In general,
it requires little more than moving the muscles of the mouth. Regardless of the technique
you try, be gentle. If your symptoms get worse, stop trying to open your ears and consult
your doctor. If you try to unclog your ears with over-the-counter
(OTC) or prescription medications, avoid prolonged use. If your symptoms persist, talk to your
doctor. Nasal corticosteroids There are many OTC nasal steroids that you
can try. Nasal steroids can help unclog the ears by reducing the amount of inflammation
in the nasal passages. This can help the air move more freely through the eustachian tube,
equalizing the pressure in your ears. Swallowing When you swallow, your muscles automatically
work to open the eustachian tube. This tube connects the middle ear with the back of the
nose.Chewing gum or sucking on hard candy can also help activate this response. Yawning Like swallowing, yawning also helps your ears
explode. The yawn opens the Eustachian tubes and allows air to flow in or out of the middle
ear, which helps equalize the air pressure on both sides of the eardrums. A big yawn is all you need to blow your ears.
However, if you can not yawn at the moment, try a false yawn by opening your mouth as
much as you can, while inhaling and exhaling. Try fake yawning every few minutes until your
ears explode. Many people feel the need to yawn every time
they see someone else yawn. So, you can see some videos of people yawning to help you
move forward. Nasal decongestants Unclogging the nasal passages can help with
clogged ears. If you use an over-the-counter nasal decongestant, be sure to follow the
instructions carefully. You may want to try the Valsalva or Toynbee maneuver after using
a decongestant. valsalva maneuver to blow your ears Close your mouth and squeeze the nostrils
with your fingers. Keeping your cheeks neutral, take a deep breath.
Blow air gently through the nose to regulate the air pressure.
Repeat until you hear a slight pop. Applying a warm towel Holding a heated towel or a heated heating
pad against the ear can help eliminate congestion and open the eustachian tube. This method
can also be calming. It can be more effective if your ears are blocked due to a cold, flu
or allergies.
