Auditory symptoms: Not all auditory symptoms are referable to eustacian tube dysfunction. If you don't smoke, and have tried a reasonable course of over the counter antihistamines and a decongestant like pseudoephedrine, and the symptoms have lasted more than a week it might be time to see your doctor.
