Having the sensation that your ears are clogged or plugged can be a sign that there is something medically wrong with your ears.  Here are some of the more common causes of clogged ears.

1. Earwax

2. Eustachian Tube Dysfunction

3. External Ear Infection

4. Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL)

Each one of these conditions should be diagnosed and treated by the appropriate Ear specialist.  Don't risk your hearing by letting the cause of your clogged ears go undiagnosed.
