Chronic Eustachian Tube Dysfunction Treatment
Usually: Eusachian tube dysfunction starting during or immediately after radiation therapy for head and neck cancers or brain tumors will usually resolve with a month or two. However, it can sometimes persist longer, especially in some nasopharyngeal cancers when the tumor was very close to the eustachian tube and it received a higher dose. In these cases an ENT may be able to help.See 1 more doctor answer

Eustachian tube dysfunction not responding to treatment (nasal sprays, prescribed by various doctors) from 6months. Now my doctor is saying- go to gym?
Sprays won't help: There is no evidence that nasal sprays, steroids or others affect the eustachian tube patency or function. If the diagnosis of this problem has been made by a general physician, it is an overused diagnosis. True eustachian tube blockage leads to negative middle pressure, eventually fluid, and possible viral or bacterial infection. Advise seeing an ENT specialist for a specific diagnosis.

Yes: Blockage of the eustachian tube, can cause fluid build up in your middle ear, which could also cause issues with your inner ear, causing vertigo.

Keep in mind, that there are other things that can cause

Hearing loss: Your eustachian tubes connect your space behind your eardrum to the back of your nose. If this tube stops working, then your ear can fill up with fluid or pressure. If it fills up with fluid, you have an effusion and your hearing decreases like you are underwater. If it fills with pressure, you may have ear pain.See 1 more doctor answer
