| | ear infection with eustachian tube problem
Can anyone give any advice for my problem. I had an ear infection in November with required three lots of antibiotics to settle this. I also had a hissing sound in my ear. After infection cleared the noise remained. My ear continued to have a lot of pressure in it and is made worse when driving. My ear seems to fill up and wont pop. I have tried nose steroids and also serc 16mg as the ENT specialist thinks I may have had a problem with my inner ear pressure as well as a problem with my eustachian tube. I have just taken another ear infection two months after the last one which has now settled but the problem with the pressure in my ear remains. When i manage to pop my ear my hearing is clear then it seems to fill back up again. If this hasnt recified by end of February ENT specialist wants to insert a grommet. Im worried this will make matters worse. There is also a clicking and squelching noise in my ear constantly. Can anyone help.
