I have a question about my T and ear not popping. My right ear is okay. Since December of 2007 I have had T in my left ear. I can't get this ear to pop no matter what. When I hold my nose and blow the right ear will pop every time. Last week I saw a new ENT, while in his office he had me try to pop my ear while he looked in it.
I had a tympanogram <sp>? in the early summer, it showed a -85 something (left ear) I don't know what the unit of measure is. I had it repeated again before I left the office and it was in the same range. Right ear is normal.
Anyway I still can't get this thing to pop and its driving me crazy. Flying makes it worse as does driving over mountains.
Is there a connection between my ear being plugged up and the T?
