Why do I get earache when I jog?
Q: When I run, after 10 minutes, my ears start to ache and it only happens whenever I jog. I never face this problem with any other exercise. I am 32 years old. Please help.
A:It is possible when you are running; you may be keeping the mouth closed and heavily breathing from the nose. At times, during this phase sometimes there is an increase in the pressure of air in the space behind the nose and pharynx, which may temporarily block your Eustachian tube. Try some different breathing exercises or you may try using some nasal drops before you start to run. This may help this unique complaint.
