Can ENT See Fluid Behind The Ear Drum?
Does anyone know if a ENT can tell if theres fluid behind the are drum by just looking in your ear with that little handheld light thing they use?
For the past 4 months I have this weird annoying feeling of fluid gushing back and forth in my head when i move my head around or side to side.
I also have this thick nasal PND (at least thats what i think it is) where i have to snort real hard to get it in my throat so i can clear it out of my throat.
When i swallow it feels like there thick phleym in the back of my throat.
From everything i have read it moreless says the ENT can tell if there fluid trapped behind the ear drum by seeing inflamation and stuff.
I have been to the ENT and he said there was no fluid in my ears, did a hearing test everything was fine. He did say last year i had somehting called Rhinitis and gave my nose inhalers.
Does this sound like fluid trapped somewhere where the dr cant see?
