long story short-
After a bout of nasty colds that wouldn't shift, I ended up with ear pressure and a little pain (although the pain wasn't that bad and was on and off). I saw a doctor who said I had a double ear infection (redness in both ears as well as a swollen/bulging eardrum). a week of antibiotics later and the redness is gone but the ear drum is now 'sucked in' and the blocked ear feeling was still there. the doctor said my eustachian tube is still blocked but I need to give it more time. a couple of weeks later and here I am. over the last couple of days I have started to notice less of a blocked feeling-it came and went before so it was hard to say to start with whether it's a definite improvement but after a few days I think it is improved the only thing I have noticed is that since the blocked feeling eases off, the slight achey feeling in my ear has increased. I didn't know if maybe this is just because things are starting to open up. I would assume the ears wouldn't be getting less blocked if overall the ear problem is getting worse. is this maybe just a natural progression or does this happen with blocked eustachian tubes-in that it comes and goes and maybe it's not improving any input appreciated!
