Don't Blow Your Nose Too Hard!!!!

It's been a few weeks since I feel uncomfortable with my ears. It feels like I went up to 62nd floor too quickly and have an ear block. Hearing is perfect but the pressure is there. Sometimes when I'm tired, it feels like the ear drum's gonna break. So what's happening?
According to the physician, I'm having a flu. Apparently, the virus got into my middle ear. Normally, the virus will start or rather concentrate on the nasal cavity and slowly travel to other part of the body like our lungs (pneumonia). The question is, how these damn flu virus went to my ear? Here's the answer...
During the flu infection, our nose will produce mucus causing nose congestion as battle to the virus (quarantine). Due to breathing discomfort we'll blow the nose. Sometimes we blow too hard, forcing the virus to enter our middle ear. The middle ear is somewhere in between the eardrum and cochlea. Anyways, don't bother that...


As a result, our body balancing organ is disturbed. Yes, some part of the ear function as balancing organ. So, next time, when you have a nose block, don't blow...try using a vacuum. LOL
