Hi, I am currently suffering with Ulcerative Colitis and am waiting for major surgery to sort my illness. I am constantly tired as a result of this, however - when I get very tired, such as after being out walking the dogs etc, my ears feel like they have popped, this has happened every time I feel overly tired and just stop what I am doing and relax. Does anyone know if this is related to fatigue?! Or whether it might be a result of the constant tension headaches I am getting most days?
 
Thank you :)

Currently taking daily:

Hi qwerty1, I don't know if this is related or not but sometimes popping ears happens because of fluid in the ears which can be caused by sinus problems.  I've had that both with and without a sinus infection and I had to take decongestants to help unblock the ears and then an antihistamine to help dry them out.  Or, you might have some ear wax build up.  Or, sometimes ears popping happens when you've been swimming.  The bottom line is that a doctor should look into the ears to see if they are inflammed or blocked.  Best of luck.  Sorry I can't help more.

Thanks for your response :)

I know it sounds a little odd but its just because with the fatigue I get my head goes all fuzzy and '[not with it' when I've overdone things. I also get lightheaded very often so I was just wondering whether the weird feeling in my ears is all part of it. Who knows!!

I can tell you that one morning I woke up feeling 'odd' and when I tried to get up, I felt dizzy.  It took me minutes to get vertical but if I moved my head or looked up, I had vertigo.  I had to be driven to the doctor and she told me my ears were clogged up.  (Actually, I suppose it was the eustachion tubes.)  And you know it's all connected in there: ears, sinuses, nasal passages....).  Other times, my ears have popped because of the fluid and being partially blocked, so that's what I thought was happening with you.  There could be other reasons but only a doctor could tell you exactly.
 
And the fatigue could be lots of things: meds, allergies from spring blooms, being anemic, being sick with sinus infection.....
