Re: Adult PE tubes for Eustachian Tube Dysfunction

Hi and thanks for the reply, i have heard of eustachian tube balloon dilation but I dont think anyone performs the procedure in Australia. When you mentioned that tubes are not worth the hearing difference - what exactly is this difference? hearing loss or autophony? my current ent mentioned that he had some of his patients complain of autophony after tube insertion - hearing yourself talk very loudly. And during the time you had the tubes did you experience the fullness feeling?

I am due for allergy testing in March - will see what the allergy specialist has to say. Do you find that the allergy shots help at all? or too early to say?

Desperately trying to find a cure. Being able to valsalva both ears does not get rid of the clicking and popping at all.=[
