My ears are blocked when I wake up in the morning. Both ears. Also in one ear when I move my head side to side it's as if there's something moving inside...ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM? I'm using ear drops now.

Hoping I haven't damaged my ears because I use my headphones quite a lot. Any advice?

If problem persists I am obviously going to doctors. Just want peace of mind for now. Thanks.

See your doctor now and get them to have a look. Doesn't sound like something to wait around for.

Hmm do you have a cold? Sometimes when you're ill a tube in your ear called the eustachian tube swells up so fluid gets retained in them and yours ears get blocked. I have a cold at the moment and both of my ears are blocked because of it. :sigh:

Have you been to anywhere tropical? You might have a buried maggot?

Imo its most likely ear wax blocked up. You could have a chunk of wax moving in your ear when you move your head. Doctors advice would be best..

No but I have a lump pea sized behind my ear. I think that's irrelevant because I've had that before.

if somethings moving it could easily be an insect that got in there when you were sleeping.

So why is the other ear blocked. It better not of given birth. Do I go to doctor or some specialist to check my ear.

Sounds like possibly just an ear infection. Have you had a cold recently? If you have a cold your sinuses don't drain right and can cause a backup of fluid in your inner ear. This fluid is the perfect temperature for bacteria to grow.

Last time I had an ear infection if felt like there was something in there and they both felt blocked up, but some antibiotics sorted it out :yep:

a GP who'd probably refer you to a specialized if they think it's a big deal.

No I haven't had a cold. But if it's not sorted in next few days I'm going to the dr.

might be earwax - keep using eardrops and if possible have a hot bath & keep your ears underwater for a few minutes.

It sounds like exactly what i had, iv always had problems with my ears such as ear wax and itchy ears but i had very bad blocked ears and all that moving when u move ur head is the clumps ov wax, you do need to go to the drs and then they should syringe ur ears out and then give u antibiotics or ear drops but if ear drops dnt work hardly for u then antibiotics would work. It all worked for me after havent had it since. Hoped it helped

Yeah if the eardrops don't do it then definitely go to the doctors, it could be a eustachian tube issue but to me it sounds more like earwax which the doctor can remove for you if you can't get it out yourself.

I had a similar thing when I had a sinus infection. It felt like there was something in my ear, it was horrible. Just go to the docs if you're worried

Inflamed sinuses are my first thought?
