Ear tubes: If simple medical managment has failed, ear tubes can easily bypass the eustachian tube and alleviate the pressure. Mot commonly placed in children under a brief anesthetic, tubes can be placed in adults in the office. For a brief video on middle ear fluid and the ear tube procedure, see http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=aitswaq711k. ...Read more

What is the immediate treatment of severe throat pain specially the eustachian tube ?

Consider these: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

What are the causes of the fluid to exist in a blocked eustachian tube?

Middle Ear: The eustachian tube is our drainage (& pressure equalizer) for our middle ear, obstructed by excessive mucous production (colds, allergy, smoke exposure), thick mucous due to infection or antihistamines, blowing your nose hard/refilling your ear with mucous, & lymphoid/adenoid tissue obstructing drainage. In children, the tube is narrow & horizontal & plugs more easily. ...Read more

Flying & ET blockage: If you are not able to equalize pressure across your middle ear during your plane ride, you could end up with ear pain or fluid or blood accumulation in your middle ear. Check with your primary provider or ENT specialist regarding treatments you can use to allow for a comfortable flight. ...Read more

Pain: Having mucous or infection in an ear tube may cause pain during pressure changes of ascending and descending. This could also potentially cause the infection to migrate to the ear drums which could pop. Best to get checked by your doctor to ensure the ear drums are healthy for the flight.

Try a decongestant: Blocked eustachian tubes are usually caused by allergy, colds, changes in altitude or ear infections. If you can't pop your ear by blowing out with your nose pinched, try a nasal decongestant or see your physician for further evaluation and medication options. ...Read more
