For the past year or so I’ve had a problem with my right ear popping when I sing, blow my nose, or yawn. It is especially a problem when I sing as it is very distracting and tends to “stay popped” for as long as I am singing, making everything I sing sound pretty obnoxious. The problem started after I had a cold about a year ago. Once in a while I will feel an extremely slight pain from the ear. I have seen an ENT who prescribed me two different pills to take over the course of a few weeks (I forget the names of them) and Fluticasone spray. None of this had any effect. I went back to my ENT and he prescribed me Oxymetazoline nasal mist and a Methylprednisolone dose pack, neither of which I have filled the prescription for yet. My ENT said he didn’t see any fluid in my ear when he looked in it. If I perform the Valsalva maneuver, my right ear pops very easily and my left ear takes a bit more pressure to pop. Is it possible this problem is just from a buildup of earwax? I am wondering if I should try the new prescriptions I was given or if there are any other suggestions you guys might have as to what is going on here or what I should do. Really looking forward to getting this problem solved mainly so I can sing again without my ear popping all the time. Thanks.
