Hi Mr Spencer
Hearing aids wont solve blocked and painful ear canals due to eustachian tube dysfunction, but would rather assist with the blocked sound you may be experiencing as a result of a hearing loss.
Usually eustachian tube dysfunction is treated either with nasal sprays, or with a stent of sorts inserted into them via surgery to keep them open.
It would be interesting to see whether the hearing loss is associated with the ETD, or whether the two are separate issues. If they are separate issues, then you can treat the hearing loss with amplification, but you may still need to attend to the eustachian tube dysfunction separately.
