Apples and ear fullness

CC'ed the Nutrition and Ear Nose Throat forums;

As some already know I have a condition where my ear feels full 24/7/365.  However some times it is fuller than other times...  The last couple-three months I have come to understand that specific foods can make your ear feel very full such as Salt and Caffeine.  I just had an apple and 15-20 minutes later my ear felt extremely full and brain fog came about where I could not concentrate at all on what I was attempting to do.  My question is, could an apple do this and what in the apple would do it?

Two contrary things in apples.  Lots of sugar, as in all fruit, might have gotten to you, though this is awfully quick.  Anybody can be allergic to anything.  But apples also have quercitin in them, which is a natural anti-histamine which theoretically would make your ears feel less full.  A toss-up, eh?  I have this fullness problem as well.  Mine was apparently caused by a medication, but it hasn't gone away.  Weird stuff.

Stupid me!!  But then I did say something about Brain Fog....   Red Delicious Apples, which are a sweat apple to begin with.
Thanks!

(ear fullness from birth defect which, in a meter of speaking, creates a hole on the skull between the inner ear and brain, which is why pressure in the inner ear is important to me).
