Re: Eustachian Tube Dysfunction - My Diagnosis and Treatment Plan
Thank you so much for posting about this problem. I have been experiencing the fullness in my left ear, fluid leaking out of my ear in the morning, and hearing loss. I've gone to the doctor a few times, ENT, chiropractor, massage therapist, and acupuncturist. What i really need to do is stick with one for a while. I started experiencing these symptoms/problems after a severe neck spasm due to falling asleep while nursing (7 months ago). My ENT did slice my ear drum and I could hear wonderfully for 1 week until my ear drum healed and filled back up with fluid. He suggests getting tubes but I don't feel like that's a fix. Now I am experiencing my first ever ear infection after my last cold.
I just really wanted to thank you for sharing your story and the ways that you have tried to help your problem. It helps me to keep going and chasing after a solution. I can't keep living like this. My husband, my kids and I have had enough! I will be sticking with acupuncture and doing a little chiropractor and massage therapy. My acupuncturist does NAET which is a Chinese therapy to treat allergies. Each session will erase one allergy at a time. I have always had a skin sensitivity and it seems like my body has been going crazy with random allergies the past few years (moisture strip on a razor, soy protein, perfume, lotion, dust, blah blah blah...long list of oddities). She tested me and I have TONS of allergies. It was very interesting and made a lot of sense of how we experience trauma leads to blockages in our bodys natural defense system.
I hope you find a solution. Our stories sound very similar. I can't believe how many of us there are! Please continue to update us.
