Re: eustachian tube problems

Once the MRI scan came back clear they basically said they had no idea. "Let us know if there's any change." !!!!!!!!! How's it going to change if no-one does anything to change it or to find out what 'it' is!!!??? Very frustrating! Also, when I talk I hear my voice in my head as if my ear is blocked, but it isn't. This especially happens on the left side (concussion was left side). Certain noises also drive me crazy - it's as if they're especially loud. I have an appointment with an Ear Nose and Throat specialist in Feb so will come back to this site after I see him. Keep positive!!!

Re: eustachian tube problems

My husband has the same problems, has been to see a neurologist and had an MRI. Cindy, I see u live in Colorado, as silly as this may seem, on the days you are affected, check your barometric pressure. We live in canada in a highly volatile weather area and the pressure is radical. On days when the pressure is falling my husband is barely able to get out of bed because of the head pressure and dizziness. Hope this helps!

Please keep the message board informed as to your results. I will try to do the same. I have gone to two ENT's with no help to this point. I have had the roaring or pulsating sounds in my right ear, like I can hear my heartbeat, which seems to be worse at night. I am not sure why. At times the pulsating or roaring, sounds like a hum or wheezing, but also in a pulsatile or rhythmic way. It is very frustrating. ENT's have recommended Flonase and Claritin D, they have not helped. My current ENT has suggested putting tubes in my ear, I am not sure this will help my particular problem. I have made an appointment with a TMJ specialist to see if it may be related to my jaw, as I also always have neck pain in my right side and headaches quite often. I have had CT scan, MRI, NEVA and those have been normal. I am also considering having my Thyroid levels checked as I have heard that sometimes if your Thyroid is not functioning properly it can produce this type of problem, also haveing blood checked for anemia. In any case, hopefully there is something out there we may find out to resolve this.

If there is anyone else out there who may have some advise please help, or if anyone out there has had tubes inserted in their ears for the same symptoms, please reply. Sage

Re: eustachian tube problems

I'm sorry it's taken soooo long to reply. To be honest I'd forgotten about this site. When you're desperate for answers, you go to so many sites!! I'm hoping that, like me, you have founds answers to your problems. In July last year I found Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome on the internet!!!!! The Wikipedia site gives an accurate but reasonably simple description and also mentions that it can be caused by head trauma, as mine was. It was like reading about myself!!! I took all the info to my Dr and she agreed. It is very rare and most doctors have never heard of it. Anyway, I am to have surgery on 30 May and hope it gets rid of all these bodily sounds in my head for ever!!! I really hope you too have found some answers and if not this may be it.
