Lumbar puncture confirmed IIH. Is this ever linked with eustachian tube blockage? Mine are always blocked when IIH headaches bad.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No link

But if you have IIH, need to wonder if venous sinuses are functioning normally, and of course, need to check other causes.
Your eustachian tube issues may relate to sinus triggering of headaches, and may be additional independent problems.
