Why do my ears pop everytime i yawn?

i yawn alot to be able to breath better
Popping is caused by pressure differences between the inside and outside of the eardrum. Air pressure within the middle ear usually is the same as the air pressure outside the body. Most individuals are familiar with the pressure change (relieved by ear popping) that occur when you fly, travel to high altitudes, or dive underwater. Swallowing or yawning help relieve the pressure by opening the eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear to the back of the trunk and upper throat. Opening the tube allows air to flow into or out of the middle ear and equalizes pressure on the eardrum. While annoying, this problem usually isn't serious. Rarely, if it persists and worsens, it can front to a perforated eardrum, an acute ear infection, and even loss of hearing. Be sure to see your doctor if you develop restlessness, severe ear pain, or drainage from an ear.
