Why do my ears hurt when i blow my nose

Report as

Pain in your ear from blowing your nose can be caused by a potential ear infection. The main reason for this type of pain is the connection between the ear, nose, and throat.

The ears are a very delicate part of the body that is connected to the nose and throat. The reason for pain when blowing your nose may be due to the pressure. If you are blowing your nose with too much force this may cause pressure which will ultimately cause pain. Its never a good idea to blow to hard as you would not want to encourage bleeding from your nose. Pain may also be caused by an inner ear infection. If you suspect that you may be suffering from this see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Because they are connected! Depending on whether your EAR problem is infection, inflammation, water or wax buildup, the blowing can cause popping noise, pain, or reverse air. If the lymph nodes are swollen, check with your doctor. DEPENDING ON WHICH PROBLEM there are Over the counter solutions including Swimmers Ear for water build up, Wax removal kits, Mucinex, or a Prescription for antibotics for infection and inflammation.

could be blowing to hard but if it also could be a sinus infection. I have had this happen several times and that's what it always is. Go see your doctor.
