I have inner ear pain that seems to extend down the back of my throat. How can I treat this? Advil (ibuprofen) and alevehave not helped
It sounds like. You r having pain from an inflamed Eustation tube. A decongestant, like Sudafed (not if u have high blood pressure or Cardiac Dz)may reduce the pressure by its drying effect. If suffering from an ear infection, it may require antibiotics. Some would suggest high dose Mucinex will improve drainage. If u have a history of Hay Fever, add an Antihistamine. For pain, alternate Tylenol (acetaminophen) with Advil every 4 hrs.
Try (temporarily) Afrin Nasal Spray every 8 hours then discuss possible Ear Nose Throat consultation! Hope this helps! Dr Z.
