Ear and head pressure feels like I am on an airplane

Hello,

For the past 2 weeks I have had pressure in my head and then my ears feel like they need to be popped as if I were on a plane. Today I had a headache with a horrible pain behind one eye that made me feel like I was cross eyed.It makes me really nervous. I am on 300mg of Wellbutrin and .25 of xanax when needed. I am not sure what this is.. could it be allergies? It seems like each time it happens its when I get up. Please let me know if anyone else has had something like this.

Even people with similar symptoms or past experiences do not necessarily have the same diagnosis. What is really important is what is causing YOUR symptoms, and unfortunately, that cannot be determined blindly over the Internet. You will need to see a medical provider so you can be properly examined, diagnosed, and treated.

You may have ETD (Eustachian tube dysfunction) or you could have an underlying viral or bacterial infection. Get it checked out so you will not have to worry....
