Why are my ears popping?


Answer by  YellowCup (1650)

Depends on where or what your doing. Flying can cause ears to pop. Any change in altitude if you are not use to it will cause ears to pop, such traveling in the mountains.


Answer by  DrMom (854)

Popping ears is caused by different pressures on both sides of the eardrum. It can also indicate fluid in the ears, allergies, a blockage in the Eustachian tubes, an infection, or inability of the openings to the Eustachian tubes to properly open and close to relieve pressure inside the tubes. This is not usually serious but probably warrants medical investigation.

The reason your ears pops is because there is a variance in air pressure between the inside of your eardrum. If you swallow hard or yawn it will lessen the pressure by letting more air into the middle ear and equaling things out.
