Question

blocked ear

Good day

For the past couple of weeks, my ear has been blocked when I wake up.

Sometimes it sounds as if some liquid is trickling around in it.

By late morning, it clears.

I' m wondering if I should be concerned or if it' s just the time of year when all our sinus problems tend to appear... Any thoughts?

Dear Ren
It can be caused by a blocked eustachian tube due to allergies - try using drixine nose drops 12 hourly for 5 days or so, and take an antihistamine like loratidine at night for a few weeks
