Ear problems When I swallow it feels like something is

Patient

Q: Ear problems. When I swallow it feels like something is pushing in my ear

Doctor

A:   Hello,

Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
It sounds like our inner ear is inflamed or the Eustachian tube is blocked due to infection.
You can take an antihistaminic like Levocetirizine once daily at bedtime for 3 days. If it doesn't resolve, you will need to get the ear examined by an ENT specialist.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
