Help and frequently asked questions

My right ear has felt like it needs to pop for a few days now, I'm not sure why this is but I thought it had something to do with my blocked nose?

Answer: 

It is not unusual to get the feeling of blocked ears, particularly after suffering from a heavy cold or blocked nose.

The feeling is normally caused by a build up of mucus in the Eustachain Tube which connects the middle ear with the back of the nose and throat. In the vast majority of cases the mucus clears up by itself within a few days.

If it lasts longer than this or if you are concerned about it, visit your GP.
