Clogged Ears
 
For the last two years or more my left ear has been clogged and makes this annoying squish squish sound when I do anything active such a jogging or jumping. I think my eustcahian tube is clogged. I have tried the netti pot but it actually made it much worse and my ear was so sore I was almost in tears.

I am pretty sure that my post nasal drip is at play but I would give anything for this sensation to go away. I have also noticed that I become off balance very eaisly as well.

Has anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions?

Suggestion: go see an otolaryngologist.

The off-balance is a sign that your inner ear might be affected. You should see a doc.

Two years? Ugh, I'd be concerned about an infection. I overproduce wax in my ears and have to have them syringed by the nurse occasionally. It's a bit of an odd feeling, but so much better afterwards when you can hear properly and there's no pressure, pain or other discomfort from congestion. Get it looked at*
