Noise/pressure in ear
A few months ago I started getting this noise/pressure in my right ear. When I go to bed at night I have to put cotton wool in my ear to stop the noise. Recently I found out that if I press on my jaw below the ear, the noise stops. What could the problem be?

Worried, it might be due to a swollen Eustachian tube due to allergies or an infection, or it might be due to a middle ear problem. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. If you want to try something yourself first, you can take something like Demazin NSĀ® twice a day for about 5 days and see if it makes a difference. Good luck.
