    Why does my ear hurt after running?
    An_267771 posted:
    When I run for an hour or more my ears will clog and sometimes I will have an earache for a day or so after the run. What could cause this?
    atti_editor responded:
    Hi, The only way to properly pinpoint what is happening to cause this clogging of your ears is to make an appointment with your doctor or an ENT to do an in-person exam of your ears.

    Here is a link to a previous post in this community that was answered by our former health expert (the first reply on the post): He suggested that it is possible the clogging in caused by Exercise-Induced Eustachian Tube Dysfunction.

    Please let us know how you are doing, and what you find!
