My ears are plugged. What does this mean?


Answer from: Yegor Nesterov:

There can be many reasons for blocked ears:

1. Problem at the level of the outer ear - for example, a wax plug.
2. Problem at the middle ear level - e.g., acute salpingo-otitis.
3. Inner ear problems, such as sensorineural hearing loss.
4. A combination of the three groups of causes described above.
5. Central abnormalities.

To determine the exact cause I think you should consider an ENT doctor or audiologist with an audiological evaluation.

If both ears are stuffy, the most likely cause is something extra-early. Especially if the blockage is permanent. But you should be examined by an ENT doctor first (examination, audiometry, tympanometry). If ENT pathology is ruled out, you should consult a neurologist.

Ask the questions that interest you, even if they seem silly, childish, strange, funny, embarrassing, uncomfortable, or abstruse.
