I'm taking Prednisone for buzzing in the head/ear and it stops it. I was prescribed 1 20 mg tblet per day for 5 days. The awful buzzing stopped for 3 weeks after I used it for 5 days.Then it started again. So I went to ER and they said I had so much wax in my right ear that it was impacted and covering my ear drum so they cleaned it out. I had no buzzing for two days; also they prescribed the Prednisone again for 5 days. I took ONE AND REALIZED IT WORK IMMEDIATELY. The awful noise stopped.
Perhaps your doc prescribed prednisone to reduce the swelling in your ears. It seems to be the wonder drug of choice these days and in my opinion, over prescribed. I'm hoping he just wants you to take it for a short time. It can be hard to get off of, and can cause all kinds of problems when taken long term. Good luck.
My daughter had a severe sinus infection with fluid/ear pressure buildup so painful, the doctor prescribed 20 mg of Prednisone, taken 3 times a day (60 mg) for 7 days, reduce to 2 for 2 days, then 1 for 1 day to keep from 'damaging her ear drum because the fluid buildup was so bad'. She's been taking it for 5 days and feel sick to her stomach, headaches - the only thing that has left is the pain in her ears. Is that an overdose what they gave her? Are these the side effects?
I sporadically have fluid/fullness in my ear which I believe is due to allergies, but I am afraid of taking allergy meds because I was recently diagnosed with Subclinical hyperthyroid disorder and have been told that sinus/allergy medications and amplify the effects of the meds. My problems is that I have this feeling like when you drink way too much alcohol and your head is all over the place. I guess that is like a light vertigo feeling. Could this be due to the fluid?
If you don't mind, can you tell me if the ringing you have is from inner ear fluid. If fluid was your problem, how long did it take for the fluid to release?
the dumb PA in my doctors office gave me prednisone for vertigo!!!!!!! she thought I had fluid in my ear causing the imbalance. Dummy didnt have sense to refer me to a ENT!!! When all was said and done, my dizziness aka VERTIGO, was a result from very low iron, my hemoglobin was 8!!! I have very heavy menstration so im anemic. Anyway, just goes to show you are dumb and lazy PA's and some doctors are. You should be better after you fully stop Pred. Give your body 2 months, give or take.
I've been to an ENT and three doctors, and none saw any fluid in my ear. Every doctor I saw had a different response. The ENT said, "Oh, just air not pressurizing properly." I'm assuming (since he did not elaborate or do further tests to see why) that my Eustachian Tube is not opening and closing properly due to inflammation.
I was on 60mg of prednisone for Graves Disease with eye involvement for 21 days, long enough for the Tapazol (thyroid med) to kick in. I started noticing the moon face after only 21 days, but at the same time could start tapering off since the thyroid med had kicked in. I have been on 20mg a day and have had a moon face for 3 days. I plan to go off the prednisone all together in the next few days. For those with Graves Disease, it took 25 days for the Tapazol to kick in.
For several years now I have had greater amounts of wax and occasionally, once a month in each ear fluid leaking for a day. Then fluid stops and firms up like a yellowy wax out of the ear. Now my one ear has gotten worse to the point I have been taking steroid drops to keep it clear as I wait to see specialist. The doctor says wax in the ears or an ear infection that will not go away but this may be a skin ear irritation - I do have rosacia on my face. Anyone else have similar problem ?
MY left ear, long considered useless, opened up I felt a trickle in the back of my throat. and I could suddenly hear in that ear for a while. Oregano oil is purported to be a anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti parasite herb. I have not been consistent with taking it and I feel foolish about that. The problem in my right ear began on a plane flight, I heard a crackle and my ear hurt.
There are rarer and more serious causes, like I mentioned. For adults with fluid in the middle ear that won't go away, most ENT docs consider a thorough head/neck exam (including endoscopic exam of the pharynx) as mandatory.
When I am not dosing myself with ibuprophen( I was taking percocet at night but hated the side effects ) I am acutely aware now of pain in the neck in a localized area; below my ear. The doctor ordered an M.R.I. which I a awaiting and thought it could be a disc irritating a nerve but I am very unsure of that because the pain in my neck feels deeper than that. I am tired and looking forward to any thoughts suggestions coments. I live on an island and cannot wait until the M.R.I. results.

Hi, Thank you in advance for your answer. I have a kity with a Hematoma in ear. It is full. Been drained 2 times in 2 weeks. I cant afford surgery as it is over $1,ooo. I was wondering if it will heal on its own. He is on Clavamox due to the second draining to prevent infection. Also had one round of prednisone and the vet wants to do a longer Prednisone tx now. My concern is how long before it will start to go down or resolve on its own. Please advise....
Its unclear whether his problem could be neurological or not A CT scan would exclude a blockage of cerebrospinal fluid as in this case the ventricles/fluid spaces would be enlarged While an MRI scan will help to further exclude a neurological cause, you should also have an ENT evaluation and a good ear exam A mass or growth blocking any of the ducts or passages (ie the eusatican tube) should be excluded Over the internet I am limited in terms of giving you a diagnosis, as I have not seen you
maybe you could have a slight ear infection, that has gone down to the inner ear drum, best thing to do if your really worried about it, and it doesnt go away within the next few days is to consult a GP or your local doctor.
It feels popped all the time and I often hear my heartbeat pounding in that ear. I am constantly moving the muscles by my right ear which makes a crackling noise as if it is going to open up, but it never does. I have been using Debrox for the past week to try to clear out earwax. No ear wax has come out that I am aware of. I'm thinking this problem isn't related to earwax at this point. My ear has just not been right for 4 months now. Any ideas? thanks!
said stop all treatments and now it is back and she has a perforated(hole) in her eardrum. I am at my wits end. She has had an infection in her ear for 4 weeks now and she is only 3 yrs old.
If there is Eustachian tube blockage from nose or sinus inflammation, fluid can remain in the middle ear which can lead to fullness in the ears. Treating the sinus infection should help resolve this. The tubes can also be blocked in Eustachian tubes dysfunction. The blockage can be intermittent. Check with your doctor to rule out this condition. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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. Also, anxiety can cause dizzying spells. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
Holding your nose and blowing into your ears would increase pressure in your middle ear, not your inner ear. Also, the anatomy of the inner ear appears to be such that the pressure in your inner ear will be the same as in your CSF. The periodic episodes of vertigo and feelings of fullness in your ears you describe are both symptoms of Meniere's disease. I do still think it might be a good idea to assess your CSF pressure.
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. Pressure Equalization Tube, PET, where a tiny plastic or metal tube, is introduced into myringotomy to keep the portal open. Please discuss this with your doctor when you meet him.
I also have pressure (feeling of fullness) in my right ear and in the last day or so, have been salivating alot more than usual (only on the right side) and it is somewhat uncomfortable (like eating something sour first thing in the morning). Also, the ear that feels full is super sensitive. Just typing on the keyboard makes it feel like my eardrum is vibrating loudly. I also have some sensitivity in my eye socket on that side and a low grade fever for several weeks (99.2 up to 100.4).
Are you sure it's not an ear infection? Or fluid in the ear? That can happen with a cold or sinus infection. Do you have sinus trouble? What kind of noise is it? Sometimes I hear my heartbeat in my ear when I lay down. I dont' know if it means anything. I do have high blood pressure, though. Since you are young, that is probably not your issue.
Without examining you and reviewing your history, I can not provide a diagnosis. The initial face pain could have been a form of trigeminal neuralgia. However the balance problem would not be explained by this. You should have an evaluation by a neurologist. A MRI of the brain with contrast to look for signs of inflammation would be helpful, and you may require a spinal tap after this. The spinal fluid can be analyzed for signs of inflammation.
One more thing, when I feel the release of fluid this pressure builds up on the right side of my head almost direclty in line with the right ear after the pressure builds up I feel a release of fluid which than drains. hope someone can offer advice...........thank you Can you tell me what is meant by Synechaie and free form fluid. I do feel the fluid draining so I am wondering if that is the fluid I feel. But, I am not sure what Synechaie is thank you. attached copy of cisternogram and mri.
went to dr and got misdiagnosed with temporal arteritis and began prednisone for a couple weeks. after 3 days swelling went down. went to neurologist he said it wasnt that started me on Physical therapy. after a week off of pred, swelling came back but heres the thing it only swells up when i lay on my left side or on my back and turn my head left or when i flip my head upside down. no one knows whats going on.
They said that I have a ear infection. They gave me antibiotics an ear drops that are used for swimmers ear. I could not buy the other ear drops that they gave me. Medicaid would not cover it so it was $173.76. The pain was horrible last night. I took some tylenal an it helped a little. Dose any one know of any thing that I can take. I can feel my heart beat an fluid behind my ear. Please help. Its driving me crazy.
Next question-after having surgery a month ago and being on prednisone and dilantin since then, should I be concerned that I am sporadically feeling fluid. It actually feels like fluid in my ear, is not painful, and comes and goes. Does this mean the prednisone is working on breaking something up or is this a bad thing? I also feel tightness in my head which I did not feel at all before the surgery.
