Dear H

Your ENT should examine your ears, and check the pressure changes. It is possible that you are suffering from Eustachian tube dysfunction, but a problem with hearing csan also cause a similar feeling. From that point of view, an audiogram may be helpful.
Some patients struggle with permanent Eustachian tube dysfunction, and this may require longterm use of nasal steroids.
