eustachian tube disorder
Can anyone tell me what test need to be done to determine if one has eustachian tube dysfunction. I seem to have all the symptoms. It all started with a sinus infection that my adult son brought home from work. He was sick first then I got sick. Then came the ear infection and I haven't been the same since. I've lost anywhere from 25 to 50 percent of my hearing. I haven't had this tested but that is how I feel. Ear fullness like it's going to pop, off balance feeling. I was having popping and cracking but since I had a myringotomy to remove the fluid that was still in my ear, my ear won't do anything. I feels totally clogged. I've been reading about the eustachian tube dilation with balloon. I want to know what happened to my ear so if there's a chance for it to be fixed, I can get that done. Can they look at your eustachian tube and see if there is tissue damage or if it's closed?
