Thanks so much for your response to such a non-workout related problem. To answer your questions, no its not the ear I lay on, I can't feel the liquid shifting around much at all (even when I am on one side for long time, change altitudes, I've tried clearing them by plugging my nose and swallowing but doesn't change at all.) I ran out of nose spray a little while before my ear got clogged, I was using 'VICKS SINEX 12-hour Sinus Relief'(OTC) twice a day. I will pick some more of it up, unless you have a better-suggested type, or ingredient to look for. It's been a week or two now and it feels like the other ear is starting to build up as well. This makes it hard to hear my professors so, I'm planning on doing a walk-in visit to my doctor Friday. But till then I'm going to google the 'Eustachian tube' see what I find out. I'll let you know what the doctor says.
