Nasonex eustachian tube

Common Questions and Answers about Nasonex eustachian tube

nasonex

I have experienced ear/eustachian tube pain in both ears (although one is much worse) since a dentist appointment to repair a broken tooth 2 months ago. Doctors have suggested, and I have tried, decongestants, Garasone, Nasonex, Neti pot, Advil Cold and Sinus. Nothing is working. The glands in my neck are sore and swollen. There does not seem to be much, if any, good news to be found on the resolution of this condition. Any suggestions??
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 this helps, I am pretty sure the problem is the Eustachian tube and now my ear pops every now and then, sometimes even consistently during the day. I am not really sure if this is a really bad thing. And when I tightly close my jaw my dysfunctional ear pops sometimes. Another big thing I noticed: When I sneeze and I close my nose I can feel all the air going through the ear tube as if there is no barrier or anything.
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.
Understand your predicament. 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. So, therapy for this lies in treating the underlying sinusitis.
An 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. This tube can get blocked due to the inflammation, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears. This can also result in infection of the ears. This could have ruptured the ear drums leading to bleeding.
Hi Welcome to the forum! What you probably have is an eustachian tube (tube connecting ear to throat) block that is causing pain. 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 that connects the back of your throat with your ear. Also taking steam before doing this can give better results. Also it will help you to take bath with earplugs on.
If it is then it could be due to sinusitis. Sometimes an Eustachian tube (tube connecting ear to throat) block can cause these pressure symptoms. Try valsalva maneuver (take a deep breath and blow while pinching your nostrils shut and closing your mouth). Hope these tips help. If symptoms persist consult an ENT specialist. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Nasal saline irrigations over the counter like NeilMed or Neti pot are very effective, but worsen Eustachian tube dysfunction (water in the ears or feeling of fullness in the ears). The best diagnosis for this problem is a CT of the sinuses. Surgery is recommended to patients that fail maximal medical treatment. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

yes i did about 3 years ago and had an mri.
The popping sound that you describe occurs when your Eustachian tube is malfunctioning. This typically happens when there is swelling or mucous around the tube - very common with allergies, colds, and respiratory conditions. It can also happen when traveling and the air pressure changes. An ENT is best qualified to determine why you are having the popping condition - note that you may need to use your medications as directed for several days or weeks before the symptoms resolve.
Hi Cat, It sounds like you have Eustachian tube dysfunction due to your allergies, and have at least negative pressure on your eardrum. Things that can help this include oral decongestants, nasal steroid and antihistamine sprays, the valsalva maneuver ("popping your ears"), EarPopper. Treating your allergies with oral antihistamines and nasal steroids as you are doing usually helps. It may take time, however. Hope this helps. Good luck!
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.
Over the past several years I have developed ear infections in my left ear in the winter. Taking antibiotics always helped with this. Last year I started taking Clairitin-D everyday in the winter which helped to prevent the ear-aches and relieve ear pressure. This year the pain worsened in the winter despite taking the Clairitin-D.
My ENT is telling me it's not permanent since I don't have any hearing loss or anything. ITs just Eustachian Tube Dysfunction he says its the after math from my infection 2 months ago. He said its not unusual at all that's it's still gong on. He's telling me its gong to go away completely in time the tube just needs to heal again. He didn't tell me to take anything else, my question do you think I can take Sudafed for a couple of days? Maybe it could speed up the recovery?
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!

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.
Can one experience "late-phase" allergy symptoms like malaise, fatigue, headaches, Eustachian tube dysfunction etc. without EVER experiencing "early-phase" symptoms like runny nose, itchy eyes etc. ? I do occasionally have a scratchy throat, but this is very seldom. I have been experiencing these "late-phase" symptoms for several months now, and was recently diagnosed (via skin ***** test) with allergic rhinitis to dust mites and pollen.
If you continue to have the problem, continue the nasonex since it helps reduce post-nasal drip which causes the ends of the eustachian tube to clog up.
Question is I still have the problem of fluid and vertigo. How long does it take to go away. I'm told it is allergy related, blockage in eustachian tube.
You shouldn't be going crazy, ask your ENT about these symptoms to see if it's reasonable at this point of your recovery, since it's hard for us to say without knowing how long it's been, and what you had done The trouble many people have unclogging their ears has to do with the blockage of the eustachian tube that drains the ear. Nasal steroids following rinsing with saline can help.
I have a wedding to attend in Mexico in 3 weeks. Can I fly with the fluid in my ears? Would Nasonex help? Can the doctor flush/wash my ear with water / salt mixture or with hydrogen peroxide? This is driving me crazy. I don`t have appetite, I lost 6 lbs in 3 days. i don`t know what to do. I tried to inhale hot water, I would also put my ear over a pot of water and just cover my head and the pot with the towel,hoping the fluid would drain, but nothing.
Hi Alisa, You should have a full exam by an ENT specialist to include hearing testing and acoustic reflexes. This could be Eustachian tube dysfunction, but could also represent early otosclerosis or other disorders. Hope this helps. Good luck!
Hi, You seem to be having secretory otitis media, this can be secondary to sinusitis as well. There is a tube connecting nose and the ear called eustachian tube. When ever there is inflammation around this tube during an attack of cold and sinusitis the opening of this tube gets blocked as a result there will be collection of fluid inside the middle ear.
I also found that a lot of times when this happens, I can squeeze my nose and swallow (create a vacuum effect) that seems to suck this fluid back into my eustachian tube and then I can usually hear fine again. After about 2.5 months of this I went into the ENT and they did hearing and typanogram test and said they didn't show any fluid in there. But they said the typanogram showed my left ear (the problem ear) at -155 pressure.
The reason for this is, following an attack of cold there is blockage of the Eustachian tube (the tube which connects the nose and the ear), this happens because of the swelling around the opening of the tube at the nasal end of the tube following the infection. So there is negative pressure created inside the middle ear leading to accumulation of fluid inside as the secretion can not drain into the nasal cavity because of the blockage of the tube.
Anyhow, I noticed I don't have them coming out of my left tonsil where I have the crackling ear problem and because of that it makes me wonder that there may be an infection in there that's not clearing up and may be pushing on my eustachian tube causing the crackling sounds. Anyhow, I'd like a doctor to post a comment to this. Because, like I said they haven't helped in the past maybe they can help now that I've given them a complete history and hypothsis on my problem.
