In brief: CSF leak

I also suffer from eustacian tube dysfunction.
Is this linked to intermittent csf leak? ANS: Very unlikely gut possible. If CSF is leaking you may die from meningitis. See you practitioner. Where did you get the idea it could be CSF leak. Would be very low on my list of possibilities. One old test is to check how much sugar is in the fluid. If very low may be CSF as brain uses all the glucose.
