Ear pressure might occur under normal circumstances. However, if an individual experiences ear pressure during an extended period of time, chances are it is a warning sign of an ENT pathology called ear ventilation issue. Several factors might cause ear pressure such as tonsils' hypertrophy among adults or the Eustachian tube's bone area narrowing among children. Those are serious issues and should be treated as so. Therefore, when in doubt, one should make an appointment with an ENT specialist.
