Eustachian tube dysfunction. A condition in which the tube that connects the throat and middle ear cavity is not allowed to open and close as it would in a normal ear system for the purpose of pressure equalization. When the eustachian tube becomes blocked or inflamed it will not allow a person to "pop" their ears and can lead to negative pressure, fluid in ear, and/or middle ear infections.
