Sometimes fluid and mucus become trapped in the ear instead of flowing down the throat.These will make the ear to get stuff. It also leads to cold,influenza and sinusitis. when your ear get stuff,you have hearing loss,you will listen sounds in higher volume and you can feel your ear get wattered.Dr. Ravi Kumar MBBS, MS has been working as a ENT surgeon in hyderabad, India for 25 years that he has been treating all kinds of treatments Like ENT and Head & Neck.

Your ears, nose, and throat are all connected on one system. So when you're congested from a cold or allergies, etc, your ears feel "stuffed" due to pressure put on them by build up of mucus in the nasal passages, most commonly. In high altitudes they feel stuffed due to pressure from the high altitudes...of course.
