?allergies: I recommend allergy skin tests to see if you have underlying allergies that can cause sinus inflammation. Allergies make infections more likely. Ringing in the ears could be due to fluid behind the ear drum which is a sign of either infection or allergies. I assume the nasal spray you are using is a steroid nasal spray like Flonase which should be effective. Allergy shots may be needed. ...Read more

Probable Eustachian : Either the saline irritated the eustachian tube or some of the irrigant got into the middle ear. It is not clear how long it may take to clear but in children may take 3months. The sensation may also be from the illness that started the process in the first place. ...Read more

This requires sub-subspecilalist consultation. Good luck. ...Read more

Having a buzzing, tingly feeling in my hands and feet especially when standing. My ears also keep popping. Worried. Could this be brain related?

No, but...: No, but although it is most likely not "brain-related," that doesn't mean it couldn't be neurological. There's more to the nervous system than just the brain. The ear popping is not related. If you're worried, then of course see your doctor. If it is neurological, it's not something a disembodied doc on HealthTap or Dr. Google should be relied on to diagnose. You need live medical hands laid on you. ...Read more

I have had eustachian tube dysfunction for over a month with constant ringing/buzzing in my ears and periods of pressure. Does this ever go away?

Eustachian Tube Prob: Yes, eustachian tube dysfunction varies with the amount of swelling of the membranes lining the tube. Irritants, like acid reflux, allergies and changes in the weather are common reasons for eustachian tube dysfunction. A recent head cold leads the list.

Try to gently clear your ears by blowing your nose with your mouth closed. This should not hurt — if it do you are blowing too hard. ...Read more
