I recently had gall bladder surgery and it seems like new systems are arriving. I am fine with rest, but when I get my day started my tongue feels like hair is on it and my ears fell clogged (pressure in my ear and jaw area). What is this?
Thanks for writing to the forum!
This is a common condition in post menopausal women. It is generally due to sensory neuropathy. It could also be due to sinusitis. I do not feel it is related to surgery. Try increasing fluids and salt in your diet. Take steam. If symptoms persist consult an ENT specialist.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
