I really think this might be the cause Of my problems cause there so large and get infections a lot, I think maybe all that bacteria is getting in my eustachian tube and causeing problems beauce I have never had ear problems in my life till this whole last year and I am 23 years old. I don't understand why it takes so long to get an answer about ears it has taking me 1 year and countless doctors I am convinced none of them care or know much about what they are talking about.
If it has been given to relieve the congestion around the Eustachian tube, then you can discontinue the spray. There are tubes called ‘Eustachian tubes’ which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears. So, based on your symptoms you can discuss with your doctor. Regards.
My dad is 80 years and has been diagnosed with PET. That is Patulous Eustachian Tube disease. He has been on steriods, antihistamines, flonase, and even alternative homeopathic medicines like a combination of iodine and hormones. Nothing is working. He had dentures put in about 2 years ago and that is when the ear problems started. The dental plate never seem to fit properly even though he went back for numerous re-fittings.
it allows me to open my ears by pushing my jaw forward and yawning. At one point I held my Eustachian tube open and fluid was flowing but I didn't know if it was going in or out so I quit, silly me. It takes a lot of practice. I see that I not not only have to learn to open the tube but to control the pressure while the ear is open at the same time.
Hello and hope you are doing well. If the Eustachian tube dysfunction, does not resolve with medical therapy, then surgical options are the choice of treatment. Myringotomy, where a tiny slit is made in the eardrum to aspirate any middle ear fluid and to allow temporary ventilation into the middle ear space. Pressure Equalization Tube, PET, where a tiny plastic or metal tube, is introduced into myringotomy to keep the portal open. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
This (i imagine) would be painful, as if you were on a plane and could not pop your ears to releive pressure (called a Eustachian Tube Disorder or ETD) or 2 Your Eustachian tubes are stuck open, causing you to hear your own breath and your voice booming on your head we are pretty sure now that number 2 is my dads problem, its called a Patchlous Eustachain Tube (or PET) and im amazed that his 5 visits to the ENT didnt dianose this!!
no problem. ETD stands for eustachian tube dysfunction. Its went the little tube that connects your sinuses- nose and ear- has problems. the fluid can get trapped in there- causing problems. there is a ton of info on the web about this. good luck!!
Eustachian tube dysfunction which Bhups1 refers to as the E.tube is blocking of the eustachian tube which can cause pain & ringing (tinnitus) with sounds similar to an ocean roar that may coincide with your breaths. It most commonly occurs after weight loss or after anti-cancer radiation to or near the nose & throat. The symptoms can disappear when you lie down. Patients sometimes complain of an unusual awareness of their own voice (autophony) and of ear discomfort.
Any inflammation in the nose and sinuses can cause inflammation around the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that runs from the back of the nose to the middle ear and is responsible for draining the middle ear of fluid. If there is Eustachian tube dysfunction from nose or sinus inflammation, fluid can remain in the middle ear which can lead to dizziness. Along with steroid nasal spray, you can use OTC decongestants/antihistamines to relieve the congestion.
And inflammation in the nose and sinuses can cause inflammation around the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that runs from the back of the nose to the middle ear and is responsible for draining the middle ear of fluid. If there is Eustachian tube dysfunction from nose or sinus inflammation, fluid can remain in the middle ear which can lead to dizziness. The best diagnosis for this problem is a CT of the sinuses. Surgery is recommended to patients that fail maximal medical treatment.
Hi, This must probably be an Eustachian tube dysfunction, I think you can continue with the nasal spray, saline nasal drops and steam inhalation 2-3 times/day. Drink plenty of warm water. If the symptoms does not subside please do consult your ENT specialist. Any more doubts you are welcome.

Well, for me it started with sinus problems.I would get sinus headaches and pain in my ears. When my sinuses become inflamed, it screws up my eustachian tube- causing the "dysfunction". My ears will start to feel plugged, I might feel fluid in there. I will get dizzy, and feel like my head is not attached. I had allergy tests done- all negative, so I know it is not that. So, I have non-allergic rhinitis. when I get stressed out or dont exericise, I notice a flare up.

Hello, What you are having is Eustachian tube blockage. Try valsalva maneuver (take a deep breath and blow while pinching your nostrils shut and closing your mouth). This will help clear the secretions in the tube. Also gargle with saltwater to clear the eustachian tubes, suck on candy, chew gum or take a nasal decongestant. These measures will help in opening the Eustachian tube. For prescription of nasal decongestants, consult your doctor as they should be taken under prescription.
She prescribed Flonanse and Clairtan. I am wondering if my tinnitus might be caused by eustachian tube dysfunction. At that time, she had said my ears looked find. A week later, I saw an allergist. She noticed fluid in both ears, with possibe infection in right ear. I do have an allergy to mold. She prescribed antibiotics. I feel my tinnitus at times is worse than it was when it began. I don't feel any better since taking the antibiotics. Two weeks ago, I'd seen an ENT.
More than anything this is just irritating. Hopefully there is not a Eustachian tube problem but who knows. In addition, I have never really suffered from any significant allergy problems.
The swallowing sensation he is experiencing may be fluid draining into his throat--either from his ear via the Eustachian tube that connects both; Or draining from his nose to the back of his throat. The doctor can diagnose and provide further treatment for his ear pain.
Inflammation in the nose, throat and sinuses can cause inflammation around the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that runs from the back of the nose to the middle ear and is responsible for draining the middle ear of fluid. If there is Eustachian tube dysfunction from nose or sinus inflammation, fluid can remain in the middle ear which can lead to fullness in the ears and consequent tinnitus. So, don't worry and discuss these options with your doctor.
She told me to switch to taking mucinex and prescribed flonase as it would relieve the clogging in the eustachian tube. Well it's been nine days of that course of treatment and my ears still really hurt and still feel terribly clogged! And this morning I awake to severe pain in my throat and found quite a few little white spots on my tonsil that have been increasing by the hour. The right ear hurts more and there are more spots on that tonsil.
It is really concerning and I am not sure what to do. I do have eustachian tube dysfunction and some problems with my sinus that I am taking Flonase for. Should I be seeing a neurologist? My primary doctor does not think so and feels it may be a manifestation of anxiety. I also notice it more a week or so prior to my menstrual cycle. It is really starting to scare me. Thank you.
However for the last two months, yes that's two months, I have had ear pain and nasal swelling. I have been diagnosed with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction and Rhinitis. Was prescribed Flonase which has done nothing after using it religiously for about a month. I still have twitching around my eyes as well. I also have intermittent diarhhea (Yeah I'm a whole lotta fun at the moment). Due to excessive drinking I'm not sure what my risk was but I'm positive it was definitely a risky encounter.
I have used peroxide, rubbing alcohol, massage, etc. But I was told that because the fluid is in the Eustachian tube, that neither of these things will help drain the fluid... it takes either steroids, antihistamines, and/or decongestants. It's so irritating dealing with this for 7 months now. I guess I may have to see an ENT, which I was hoping to avoid. Thank you for your advice!
I was told the infection went away, but the fluid is still there, and my eardrums are still retracted. I was put on flonase and ciprodex ear drops. I woke up this morning, and my ears were hurting just as bad as they were when I first got the infection. And my ears feel full of fluid again, I can barely hear. And my ears keep popping. I also started to get an earache behind my ear. Could the infection have come back? Why am I in so much pain again, all of a sudden?
This is more so as you have episodes where you feel the ‘opening up’ and temporary relief from pain. In Eustachian tubes dysfunction, the blockage can be intermittent. If the Eustachian tube dysfunction, does not resolve with medical therapy like nasal sprays, then surgical options are the choice of treatment. Myringotomy, where a tiny slit is made in the eardrum to aspirate any middle ear fluid and to allow temporary ventilation into the middle ear space.
Also on allergy med astepro and flonase. I don' think it is my eustachian tube anymore, but more just inflammation in my inner ear from lyme and allergy. Keep me updated, hope you are well soon!
He also said my turbinates were inflamed or swollen. Under diagnosis he has Allergic Rhinitis, Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, Inf. Turbinates, and Tinnitus, which I told him about. He took me off the decongestants and gave me Flonase nasal spray. Will this have any effect on my ears popping? He said if my condition persists to come back in a few months and he will go from there. Worst case: Ear Tubes. What is the success rate of that?
This sounds like it could be Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, but you should see an ENT specialist for a full diagnosis. Hope this helps. Good luck!

A week later they found no improvement, so I continued taking mucinex and started on flonase. The feeling never really went away, though, so in early May I went to an ENT specialist and he said I had an ear blockage. So then I started on a twice daily routine of saline wash and nasonex. I just re-visited the ENT doc last week (mid-June) and he found improvement in my ears, but not 100% yet (he said maybe one more month). So now I'm still doing the saline/nasonex routine and.
It does sound very much like you have a head cold that is affecting your sinuses and congesting your Eustachian tube. To help yourself to relieve these symptoms do steam inhalations. Get a large bowl and pour in a kettleful of boiling water. Take care not to get scalded. Put some vick or olbas oil or your preferred menthol oil. Bend you head over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel and breathe in the steam through your nose.
