THE EUSTACHIAN TUBE

The Eustachian tube is a narrow tube that connects the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum) all the way to back of the nose internally. Under normal conditions, the middle ear is filled with completely with air.

SYMPTOMS

The main symptoms of an abnormal middle ear pressure include a clogged or fullness sensation in the ear and muffled or decreased hearing (Conductive Hearing Loss).

Occasionally, fluid can build up in the middle ear space due to these abnormal pressure dynamics. This is common in children but can also occur in adults, especially when flying or diving while congested (a problem known as otic barotrauma).
