I have some hearing loss, my eustachian tube blocked. What is treatment?

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

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.

Eustachian tube dysfunction not responding to treatment(nasal sprays, prescribed by various doctors) from 6months. Now my doctor is saying- go to gym?

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. ...Read more

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

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

My Eustachian tube is completely blocked, and the valsalva technique does not work. I have to fly in two days -what are the consequences of flying?

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

What are the consequences of flying with a blocked Eustachian tube if the valsalva technique does not work?

What are the consequences of flying with a blocked Eustachian tube if the valsalva technique does not work?

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. Cheers. ...Read more

How to open the eustachian tube? I believ mine is blocked because the pressure of my headphones are causing me to feel like im going to pass gas/explode , etc

Hi. : Hi. First off - please take off the head phones and keep them off until the pain has resolved. Trying pinching down both of your nostrils so that no air flows through them. Now, with you mouth closed and your nostrils pinched closed breath hard (like you were bearing down to have a bowel movement). This pressure might be enough to temporarily open the eustachian tube. However, if that doesn't work consider use of an over the counter oral decongestant - by reducing congestion/ swelling it may take pressure off the eustacian tube which may be pinched off. Consider use of a nasal spray like afrin. It is quite powerful but shouldn't be used more than twice a day for three to five days at the maximum. Maybe you could limit headphone use. Take care. ...Read more

Will nasalcrom help relieve blocked eustachian tube causeed by allergies?

Will nasalcrom help relieve blocked eustachian tube causeed by allergies?

Not likely : Etd from allergy is more of a congestion problem that will respond to medications that decongest such as topical nasal decongestants like afrin or neosynephrine; oral decongestants like sudafed; and topical nasal steroids like nasonex, flonase, veramyst, omnaris, qnasl. Zetonna, and others. ...Read more
