Eustachian tube dysfunction
However, quick changes in air pressure such as when diving or flying, or even tumours, may also result in a Eustachian tube dysfunction. Here, the auditory tube, also known as the Eustachian tube, becomes blocked. This tube forms the connection between the throat and middle ear and normally ensures that the pressure in the middle ear matches the pressure in the nasopharynx, and thus the outside pressure. A blocked Eustachian tube causes a feeling of pressure, but possibly also gurgling noises or sharp pains in the ear, and muffled hearing. If a Eustachian tube dysfunction is not treated, the mucous membranes in the Eustachian tube and middle ear are altered and may result in severe hearing impairment.
